Wine tasting at Chateau Ste. Michelle
After we visited the Boeing factory we drove to Woodinville with the idea of visiting the whiskey distillery and perhaps a couple of wineries. We ended up visiting just one, but turns out if you can only visit one then this is the place you must visit. Chateau Ste. Michelle is not only the oldest winery in Woodinville, it's also the largest Riesling producer in the world! This was news to me. Who knew that more Riesling is produced here than in Germany
? A variety of tastings are available for $10 a person and I chose to try 5 different Rieslings. The staff is wonderful and when I couldn't decided which bottle to take home they happily gave me more free tastings so I could decide. Aside from the wine they have plenty of charming products you'd want to buy and the grounds is just beautiful.
