An Afternoon Of Wine In Woodinville

Last Sunday we went with the Wagners to the Passport To Woodinville Festival. It was a chance to visit and sample wine from 20 or 30 odd tasting rooms. Everyone purchased a ticket which looked like a standard passport, along a wine glass. All the wineries had water so that people could wash out their glass between tastings. The wineries are clumped close together in the industrial area of Woodinville, a suburb northeast of Seattle. We did not go to Woodinville's signature winery Chateau St Michelle because you could go there anytime I think our favorite was Covington Cellars, which was the first place that where we tasted. All of the establishments served food along with their wine offerings.
