Passion is infectious. Any wine enthusiast and dog lover who wishes to be infected with passion
should grab Fido and head to Woodinville Wine Country in Washington. With over 100 wine tasting rooms, and the variety of wine makers and personality to go with it, you and Fido will be sure to experience sensory overload while exploring this hidden wine valley.
Just over the hill, and approximately 30 miles from downtown Seattle sits this mecca for wine tasting enthusiasts. Eclectic wine connoisseurs will be able to satiate their palates with a plethora of wines to taste. From informal warehouse tastings to grand Chateaus, Woodinville Wine Country is a place that welcomes all forms of travelers, two and four-legged alike.
Willows Lodge sits at the heart of your wine tasting experience in Woodinville, and is prominently surrounded by Chateau Ste Michelle (one of the oldest wineries in Woodinville dating back to 1934), Red Hook Brewery, Columbia Winery, Pattersons Cellars, Brian Carter Cellars and Purple Café, all within walking distance, just to name a few.
You and your furry companion can safely walk on a secure walkway to and from the over 20 different wineries surrounding Willows Lodge. Many wineries have outdoor seating, and some, like Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia Winery, have outdoor music concerts to enjoy with your wine, cheese and crackers and Fido. Some venues may not allow dogs, so be sure to check ahead of time, while other wineries, such as Brian Carter Cellars, have Puppies on the Patio gatherings that allow travelers to sniff, swirl and savor.
