3 Best Wineries and Wine Bars in the Seattle Area

When people think of wineries, they often think of Napa Valley, California, and the many vineyards and wineries found there. While California has the largest number of wineries in the country, many people don't realize that Washington has the second largest number of wineries in the United States.

This beautiful state offers more than 900 wineries to choose from, as well as more than 70 different locally produced wines to enjoy. Discover some of the top wineries in the state to visit the next time you're in the area.

Ambassador Winery

Located in Woodinville, Washington (about 30 minutes outside Seattle), the Ambassador Winery Tasting Room is one of the best wineries in the state. It is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. You can choose between two different wine clubs that both include discounts on wines, exclusive invitations, and priority access to select wines, among other benefits.

If wine tasting itself isn't enough for you, you can attend one of several comedy events at the tasting room throughout the year. To maximize your trip to this elegant winery, or any other ones that you may visit in the area, be sure to book an InterContinental Hotels Group property close to one of these wineries to cut down on travel time.

The Tasting Room

Another excellent winery to try in the Seattle area is The Tasting Room. It's located in the middle of the famous Pike Place Market and is open all week long from noon until 8 p.m. or later in the summer.

The Tasting Room is always an exciting place to be because the venue features live music on most Fridays and offers discounts during happy hour Monday through Thursday. With more than 60 wines to choose from every day as well as the option to join the wine club that offers discounts and exclusive invitations, The Tasting Room is one of the best wineries to visit in Seattle.

Northwest Tastings Wine Bar

Northwest Tastings is another great wine bar to check out while you're in Seattle. It, too, is located in the Pike Place Market and is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day except Tuesday. Northwest Tastings also offers different levels of a wine club to join that give significant benefits to its members, such as discounts on wines, wine tasting with the winemaker, advanced notice of events and new releases, and discounts on special event tickets. Special events are also offered throughout the summer and fall, and the outdoor amphitheater where they are held is a child-friendly space.

Seattle has much to offer, but one of the best parts about the area is its range of excellent wineries to visit. The winemakers of Seattle know what it takes to create high-quality wine, and the patrons of these wineries can taste their passions.
