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, and red blends at Pondera Winery show a range of crimson shades like a bull’s anger-management counselor. Bordeaux grapes from a handful of Columbia Valley vineyards mingle in the shop’s cuvee, and guests at William Church Winery stroll beneath walnut-hued barrels, clicking together glasses of a pinot gris that hints at lemon zest and green apples.
With the help of his uncle Tom Campbell, who just happens to be a seasoned enologist and viticulturist, Bijal Shah and his wife Sinead founded The Woodhouse Wine Estates in 2004. The winery's vintages are brought to life by Jean Claude Beck, whose winemaking genes reach back to Alsace, France, where his family estate has been crafting wine since 1579. The team at Woodhouse focuses on expressing the unique terroir of each grape?s origin, yielding balanced, mature wines marked by full flavors. Inside the tasting room, chandeliers sparkle over a long bar, where visitors can sip pours of any number of select wines.
Elevated Sportz combines the gravity-defying fun of a trampoline center with the enchantment an indoor playground in one all-encompassing entertainment arena. Inside the two-sectioned play center, bouncers can hurtle into the air and play games of dodgeball and basketball on wall-to-wall trampolines equipped with protective pads. On the other side of the building, a multi-tiered jungle gym with hiding spaces, twisting slides, and ball pits entices younger visitors to expunge pent-up energy or practice stealth maneuvers for upcoming cookie-jar raids. Visitors watching their family and friends defy gravity can relax in the cafe with a sandwich and a smoothie while surfing free WiFi.
