This is JM Cellars, one of the wineries that made it onto my list of the best Woodinville wineries.

If you’ve seen my past guides to PNW wineries, you know I have a near reverence for wine. I’m constantly researching places to try and sipping my way through the best wineries in the region.

Washington is home to some of the best wine in the world, and people living or exploring Seattle have a great wine tasting area nearby: Woodinville. This wine-loving town is about a 30-minute drive from Seattle and has more than 100 wineries and tasting rooms.

I’ve explored most of the wine districts in the area, so I’ll break down the areas and give you a local’s perspective on the best Woodinville wineries.

We sat down with the owner of Farm Shed Wines, a wine shop in Western Washington that sells sustainable, small batch wines from the Pacific Northwest. This is their space for wine tasting and events.

If you’ve learned one thing from my Instagram stories, Walla Walla wine guide, and my Lake Chelan wineries round up, you know I love wine. That’s why I was so pumped to learn about Farm Shed Wines, a new wine retailer curating sustainable, small batch wines from the Pacific Northwest.

Since I love supporting local makers and artisans, we’re going to work together to develop recipes and wine pairings highlighting stories from their winemakers. But before we dive into each winery’s story, I wanted to share with you how Farm Shed Wines went from an idea to a full-fledged wine shop just outside of Tacoma, WA.

When my sister asks three days before Labor Day, “Hey, you want to go to Walla Walla?”, I drop everything and go. That’s how Travis and I found ourselves in Walla Walla, WA this past Labor Day Weekend with kids in tow to explore (as they adorably put it) the “wine-beer-ies”…that’s wineries and/or breweries for those who don’t follow the art of child speak.

As with any trip I take, I started manically planning all the places we should go. I scoured other “best of” lists, articles outlining awards, and asked around. I was amazed at how one of Washington’s premiere wine regions could have so little content about where to drink and eat while on vacation. Sure, there are “here’s a map of all the wineries,” but how is that helpful? I ain’t got no time for that.

So I made a carefully-curated Walla Walla, WA travel guide. Read on to enjoy an itinerary for discovering the best wineries adults and kids alike will enjoy.
