Woodinville is a mid-sized city in Washington and is at the epicenter of Washington State's wine-tasting trail. Though the wineries of Washington state may be as well-known as their Californian neighbors, there are in fact more than 150 wineries situated here, in addition to dozens of distilleries, breweries and vineyards just waiting to be explored.
The wineries that call this region home are among the best things to do in Woodinville. Though there are many options to choose from, Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, Novelty Hill Januik Winery, and many of the quaint vineyards scattered through the Woodinville Wine Country Valley are the best places to sample a tipple or two. The wines here are often served in conjunction with food pairings. If whiskey is more your bag, try the independent blends brewed at the Woodinville Whiskey Co.
Those who want to work off their wine calories and explore nature will enjoy trekking through the beautiful scenery of the nearby Sammamish River Trail -- a walk and cycling path that extend over more than 10 miles.
Woodinville is best enjoyed in the summer months owing to the hotter and more pleasant conditions at this time.
