This from the Woodinville Wine Country site:
Matthews Estate has undergone a change in ownership and must apply for a new license from the Federal Trade and Tax Bureau. Until our license is granted, we are required to suspend all winery operations, including wine tasting and wine sales. We thank you all for your interest in our winery, and we look forward to sharing our wines with the public again in the near future.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvience this interruption in service may have caused.
The Staff and Owners of Matthews Estate
Hours: None, currently
Matt Loso left the winery back in July, and he will be missed. I had a chance to meet him at a dinner he hosted at the winery back in 2000 and it was a real treat. There was a post a few weeks back by Kori at Wine Peeps who felt the staff provided sub-optimal service under the new management. Perhaps this break will give the new owners a chance to regroup.
