Does winding through Woodinville’s wine country sound like a fantastic way to spend a day? You’re right — it is.
A number of wineries have bloomed in the bursting local industry along the northwestern tip of Lake Washington. When world-famous Chateau Ste. Michelle winery settled in the area in 1976, it brought with it a gradual wave of other wineries and, of course, wine lovers.
Currently, more than 100 wineries call the Woodinville area home. Now, you can experience those on the Woodinville Wine Country shuttle, every first and third Saturday from July 5 to Sept. 20.

Downtown wine walk returns for third season
One of the Downtown Issaquah Association’s main goals is getting more people to enjoy activities in the downtown corridor.
The association hit upon an idea that has grown in popularity and returns for its third season Feb. 7 — the Wine Walk Series.
The formula takes equal parts wine tastings, arts and crafts demonstrations and live music and blends them together for an adults-only crowd. DIA Executive Director Karen Donovan said the combination has proven to be a success, filling a need in a section of the calendar left neglected in the past.
