Sunday Passport 2011: 10th Anniversary

by Shona Milne on April 24, 2011

The pace on Sunday seemed very laid back as the 10th Anniversary of Passport to Woodinville by Woodinville Wine Country was wrapping up. I do think there was a big difference with the passports being good for through the end of May. People did not need to rush from one tasting room to the next. […]

by Shona Milne on April 19, 2011

It was the 10th Anniversary of Passport to Woodinville this year and it was sold out as of late Saturday morning. Woodinville Wine Country put a new spin on the Passport this year by making the Passports good for about six weeks through the end of May. It seemed to me that the urgency to […]

St. Nicks 2010: Sunday

by Shona Milne on December 25, 2010

On St Nicks Sunday I roamed around the Hollywood Schoolhouse area. It was not very busy on Sunday but it did offer the opportunity to chat with the staff of the many tasting rooms participating this year. Still I did not see the bad Christmas sweaters, santa hats, etc. I did manage to get my […]


Passport to Woodinville: Hollywood Sunday

by Shona Milne on April 22, 2010

I certainly made a good decision when I picked the Hollywood Schoolhouse area for my wine tasting on Sunday. What great weather! Anywhere with a patio was the place to be on Sunday. I managed to get a parking spot in front of Mazatlan Restaurant and headed over to Airfield Estates. I think of the […]


Passport to Woodinville: Saturday Warehouse

I then focused my first day of Passport to Woodinville on the warehouse district. I started off at Hestia Cellars which has a great Meritage and they had a nice live band for your sipping […]
