Rumor has it that during the Obama presidency, they served a DeLille white at White House functions. Stop by the Carriage House Tasting Room, and if it’s warmer out, their outdoor seating area is the cutest atmosphere for sitting and sipping. If you want to enjoy DeLille’s hospitality elsewhere, their Maison DeLille Wine Lounge is in Kirkland and the DeLille Chateau is just up the road from the tasting room, a gorgeous event space.
Sparkman Cellars boasts a selection of award-winning wines, but many people also love the message behind their mission. The Sparkmans launched their winery so they could have more time to focus on their family, and the venture has evolved into a family affair. You can view a list of their wines here, and learn more about what makes each of their tasting rooms unique so you can decide what type of experience you’d like to have here.

Well-known for their concerts that attract big-name headliners, Chateau Ste. Micelle might be one of the most well-known wineries in Woodinville.

You can try a flight of wine, dive into a class where you get to learn from the experts and make your own blend, enjoy a custom wine/food pairing, and more.
