Wayne and Sarah Wheller first got the inspiration for Redmond Ridge Winery from a tasting room across the Canadian border, where they repeatedly inspired themselves with glasses of Chardonnay. In the ensuing years, Wayne would look to his South African heritage for insight into crafting vintages, combining them with the flavors and resources of the Northwest. The resultant creations are now poured into glasses or over the heads of true oenophiles in the winery's downtown tasting room, where reclaimed casks act as tables and rows of obsidian bottles line the shelves.

Signature service: Cork and Click Photography Wine Tour Established: 2012 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 1 person Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Brands Used: Patit Creek Cellars and Forgeron Cellars Pro Tip: Be sure to charge your camera battery the night before. Q&A with Christiana Childers, Owner/Instructor How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field? We teach photography using hands-on instruction in a small intimate group [that feels] more like a book club than a class room. We keep our class sizes around six students and teach at different wineries in Woodinville. Not only do you get hands-on photography instruction, but you get to taste great Washington wines while you learn. What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars? Relax and enjoy the experience. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Even if they are the same questions over and over. Cork & Click classes are about having fun and truly learning how to use your camera to catch that moment. When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? Christiana, the instructor, has had a passion for photography for over 15 years. Initially learning photography was a challenge, and she wished there was a class like this when she was learning. Now that she is a professional photographer, she teaches photography the way she learned and loves to empower people to understand their camera so that they can capture [moments]. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Christiana has a passion for teaching photography. She has been teaching at the Wineries in Woodinville for over two years and has 100% positive feedback from customers. Christiana's approach to teaching is very relaxed with lessons and exercises that are easy to understand and can be used after the class to continue to learn and become a better photographer.
