This is not a typical sightseeing tour, but a combination of some Boutique wine tasting and a little sightseeing to Snoqualmie Falls.
This tour is fully escorted, we go with you and stay with you at each winery to offer additional information on the wines that only a private tour can provide.
Taste wine with a wine maker on his porch over looking his vineyard
This Tour has now become the second most popular wine tour we have!
This is a great tour for out of town guests to get into the country a little and see the beautiful Cascade Mountains up a little closer. We travel from Seattle across Lake Washington where you can see 14,000+ foot high Mount Ranier on a clear day off to the right. Yes it’s usually clear in summer. We proceed into the foot hills winding gradually uphill on I- 90 East to the beautiful 270 foot Snoqualmie Falls. It is a scenic ride with the foot hills on both sides. As we approach Snoqualmie Falls you may also see majestic Mount Si. There is snow as of 2-23-20 on many of the peaks. Mt. Ranier ‘s snow ever melts on the top portion so you can it at any time of the year.
This tour takes you away from the city and all of the congestion in Woodinville and Seattle on the weekends. It includes visits to a few wonderful award winning boutique wineries.This tour provides an in depth experience that only a private tour such as ours can offer. You will meet a wine maker or 2 and learn how he crafts his award winning wines. One such unique winery in the area offers the opportunity to taste wine while overlooking the vineyard and the garden in spring and summer. All with the wine maker. Other boutique wineries are close by or we can travel back to Woodinville or into Seattle if you wish.. After visiting the Falls we stop for lunch (on your own) but with your guide at a near by restaurant or at the beautiful Salish Lodge, which over looks the falls. (on request).Advance notice is very helpful for lunch reservations at the Salish Lodge, because it gets very busy. After a great lunch and talks about wine with your guide we head out to a few more boutique wineries to enjoy some excellent wines based on what we have selected before hand with you.
