Tickets have gone on sale for the great Woodinville annual wine event called Washington Wine Highway over the Memorial Day weekend. We went last year and decided it was one of the best of the many wine events we attended in 2007.
What is Washington Wine Highway? It’s held on Saturday and Sunday, May 24 and 25, on the beautiful grounds of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. Four regional pavilions are set up on the grounds, designed to follow the highway route between Woodinville and Walla Walla,Â and representingÂ the nationally recognized terroirs of Walla Walla, Puget Sound, Yakima Valley, Red Mountain and Columbia Valley. The pavilions showcase the wines, restaurants and tourist industries of each area.
It’s an excellent opportunity to try wines from eastern Washington without leaving western Washington, while at the same time, enjoying your Woodinville favorites too. And when you taste an excellent wine — and there are lots of them made in our state — you can purchaseÂ a bottleÂ right at the site.
Check out the Washington Wine Highway Web site for the list of 80 participating wineries and 40Â restaurants. This is one event that you will not want to miss! You can purchase tickets for one day or both. There’s also an early bird ticket price, which is worth considering because tickets sell out fast.
We hope to see you there — Cheers!
