Great for a day out 2/5/2010

We went here for our wedding anniversary and really enjoyed ourselves. My husband loves wine but really learned about it through the tour and wine tastings. We went during the week, so the guides were able to give more personal tours. Its has beautiful grounds w. fountains, peacocks, and views. The tour of the plant is free and the tasting tours are about $15. The wine bottle prices vary between $15-$1000. But that $15 bottles are a good buy and worth it! I have recommended this to a few friends bc we enjoyed it so much Pros: Pretty grounds, decent prices more

Great concert venue.... 7/10/2009

This place is great, amazing guest services staff but could use more permanent facilities for concerts...place to eat and watch the concert (pre-show dinner?), on-site restaurant / hotel? Pros: Setting, staff, shop, Cons: more permanent facilities for concerts, on-site restaurant more

Don't bother 10/18/2008

Sure, the grounds are beautiful, sure the buildings are nice and there's a nice shop, but the tours are definitely missable. That is, unless you enjoy being called "hon" every thirty seconds by a cloyingly "sweet" tour guide who doesn't seem to know anything about the wine or the grapes beyond what's already posted on the walls or is just common knowledge about wine. Pros: Beautiful scenery, impressive shop Cons: Incompetant tour guides. more

Don't expect to see grapes 11/21/2006

It is fun to tour the wine making process, but don't expect the experience you get when you travel to eastern washington or oregon wine countries. This is fun for out of town guests. more

Lovely Night, Great Music, Fantastic Venue 9/4/2006

I love this venue! This was my second concert here, I saw Lyle Lovett earlier in the summer. Both events were spectacular. I thought the management of the grounds, the crowd, and the rules were enforced from where I was. The only recommendation that I can make to future concert goers is to get to the venue early. If you get there aroun 3-4pm for a 7pm show, you can have a little picnic on the lawn (in a semi-formed line) and then when the gates open lay your blanket on the lawn with your lowback chairs to stake your claim on the lawn. (I prefer the lawn to the reserved seating chairs because you can stretch out a little more). Once you get your blanket out, you can get your hand stamped and head over to the Redhook Brewery across the street and grab dinner there or get it boxed up to go. Once you're back on the lawn the shows that I've been to have started on time at 7pm. At the Lyle Lovett concert the sun set just as hot air balloons floated above. At one point, the Washington Dinner Train chugged along behind the venue. I can't think of a better place to see a show. You should take a rolling cooler, a picnic blanket, low chairs, and maybe a small folding table. Enjoy!! Pros: Beautiful Setting, Ambience, Parking is Free more

Terrible management of concert 9/2/2005

What a shame! An otherwise beautiful little outdoor concert area was ruined by lack of enforcement of venue rules and nightmare of poorly managed "first come first served" seating. Chain smoking all over, outside of designated areas - tall chairs used against winery "rules" - resulting in empty patches of lawn behind those folks, resulting in lack of useable seating area for the rest of us who followed the rules by bringing low chairs. We had to sit outside of view of the stage in constant billowing cigarette smoke. Nonstop wine sales throughout the show meant increasing drunken disorder throughout the night, so we left early. All this for $50 a person plus service fees. Never again! Pros: parking shuttle Cons: disorder, ticket price, poor management more

Great scenery 8/19/2002

The Chateau is a must see for the beautiful grounds and building and for the fish ponds that hold 30 inch rainbow trout! The wine store is more fun than the tour. more

  • The Scene
    The state's second largest winery creates its prized white wines in the heart of the Sammamish River Valley, producing approximately 750,000 cases of wine each year. A tour of "the cellar" includes the bottling room, the production room and the barreling room (where wines are aged in oak barrels, allowing them to achieve various degrees of toastiness). The final stop is the tasting bar, where guests can sample several wines: a fresh and fruity white, a dry white, a red and a dessert wine.

    The Experience
    Be sure to dress warmly; the cellar temperature ranges from 45 to 55 degrees. Tours begin on the hour and the half-hour. But if you don't want to miss the bottling process in action, call ahead. Bottling usually takes place Monday through Thursday, but the production line is sometimes halted.
