If you’ve wet your whistle in Seattle or ventured up to Woodinville for some wine tasting, but still want more liquid grapes, hop a ferry to lovely Bainbridge Island. The island, a mere 30 minute ferry ride from Seattle, is a charming, laid-back spot to spend a day. It really feels as if you’re a world away.
Getting across the Cascades to the vineyards and wineries in Eastern Washington is not an easy feat. So it’s lucky for us that the industry has brought the wine west to the doorstep of Puget Sound. Less than an hour north of Seattle (about 15 miles) lays the city of Woodinville which has become ground zero for the Washington wine industry.

Whatever adult beverage you’re in the mood for, chances are you will find a taste in Woodinville.
