The Best Places for Wine Tasting in Seattle…
…Without Having to Schlep to Woodinville!
Washington state residents and visitors alike are sure lucky when it comes to an abundance of regional wines. From the quaint valleys of Yakima to the hustle and bustle of Woodinville you can experience a variety of varietals in some very picturesque places, all within a few hours’ drive. But one of the best aspects of visiting Seattle is that even if you are here for just a short stay, you can also experience a plethora of Washington wine tasting without ever having to leave downtown.
The Tasting Room; Wines of Washington (1924 Post Alley) https://www.winesofwashington.com/
Also in the Pike Place area is the fabulous Italian specialty food and wine shop DeLaurenti (1435 1st Avenue.) http://delaurenti.com/ Every Saturday this gorgeous shop offers one of the most affordable wine tastings in all of Seattle. From 2PM-4PM you can sample regional and Italian wines in their upstairs wine cellar for only $2.00 a person. Some weekends feature cider or beer tastings instead of wine, but for 2 bucks any tasting is well worth it!
Robert Ramsay: (1629 Queen Anne Ave N. #102) https://robertramsay.com/ Located on quaint Upper Queen Anne hill, a quick uber or bus ride from any of our Belltown properties, the Robert Ramsay tasting room is dedicated to showcasing Rhone varietal wines. Winemaker Robert Ramsay Harris produces wines that are hearty and bold but very food friendly. The tasting room is open Tuesday through Sunday and features a daily happy hour.
Seattle Urban Works is home to 10 local winemakers. Located just south of the city center, in the Stadium District, or SODO, you can sample a whole lot of wine all under one roof. One of the notable tenants that is worth checking out is Kerloo Cellars (3911 1st Avenue South) http://www.kerloocellars.com/ Winemaker Ryan Crane showcases Rhone and Spanish varietals in a chic tasting space located in an otherwise industrial part of town a short uber ride away from all our Belltown and downtown properties.
Jet City (1136 South Albro Place) in the Georgetown neighborhood near SODO, is home to Washington’s renegade winemaker Charles Smith http://winesofsubstance.com/visit-us/ The expansive space that was once a Dr. Pepper bottling plant features two tasting rooms with his uscious wines and a view of the main runways of Boeing Field.
