Get a taste of Washington wines while experiencing the charm and character of Woodinville.
AMBASSADOR WINES Enjoy dinner for four at the new Ambassador Wines of Washington Tasting Room with Nathan Engman and Ambassador managing partner/chairman Allison Engman. Founded in 2005, Ambassador Wines of Washington produces 100% estate-grown Washington red wines from their vineyard located at the heart of Red Mountain. The high temperatures and diverse geology of Red Mountain help Ambassador to create balanced and bold Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.
FIDELITAS WINES You and three friends will also enjoy a tasting at another Red Mountain winery, Fidelitas. Fidelitas began as just a dream for owner Charlie Hoppes, one of Washington’s most respected winemakers. After growing up in what would become Washington wine country, Hoppes brought his wine knowledge to several other wineries before starting his own, producing Fidelitas’s first vintage in 2000 while working at Three Rivers Winery in Walla Walla. In 2007, Hoppes was able to purchase land on the desirable Red Mountain, where he sources his grapes exclusively from top vineyards.
LAUREN ASHTON CELLARS The distinguished artisan winery, Lauren Ashton Cellars, produces a unique portfolio of hand-crafted Washington wines. Started in 2009 by Kit Singh, a dentist by trade, the winery incorporates principles of sustainability as well as Old World wine-making techniques. With access to quality grapes from vineyards in the Yakima Valley, Columbia Valley, and Red Mountain American Viticulture Areas (AVA), Lauren Ashton Cellars creates varietals including Chardonnay, Roussanne, Syrah, Riesling and Semillon, as well as Bordeaux and Rhone-style blends. At their tasting room, a tasting coach will teach you the facets of wine and help you discover new elements with each sip.
