Woodinville Wine Tastings
Woodinville Wine Tastings unites four wineries that sit within a pleasant walk of each other. At Davenport Cellars, patrons may sip cabernet sauvignon aged in French oak beneath impressionist oil paintings of natural landscapes. John Patterson of Patterson Cellars lets more than two decades of experience shine through in swirling elixirs. At Pondera Winery, guests mingle in a tasting room that doubles as a gallery of rotating exhibits by well-known artists as they sip red blends that show a range of crimson shades like a bull’s anger-management counselor. Bordeaux grapes from a handful of Columbia Valley vineyards dominate the shop’s cuvee, and guests at Elevation Cellars click together glasses of a sauvignon blanc that hints at grapefruit and apricot.
