Famous Snohomish summer wine walks return for an 8th year!

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Need another reason to love summer? For the eighth year in a row, downtown Snohomish merchants will host wine tastings in their stores on second Saturdays June through September. “Sunsets in Snohomish” wine walk events take place on June 9, July 14, August 11 and September 8, from 4-8 p.m.  Proceeds support downtown revitalization and beautification projects.

June 9 marks the first of the monthly events in 2018. Always a “bring-your-own-glass” event, advance tickets are $25.00, which includes eight tastes of wine and a $10 voucher to purchase bottles of wine. Tickets at the door are $30.00. Extra tastes can be purchased for only $1.50 each. For all those collectors out there, commemorative wine glasses can now be purchased at each event for only $10. “How fun is it to buy your glass in June and use it all summer long,” said event organizer Debbie Carlson-Gould. “We’re also offering bottle totes free with the purchase of two bottles of wine. Boom! It’s easy to carry home your favorite wines.”  First timers will be joining the fun this year: Armstrong Family Winery, Truth Teller Winery, Long Cellars, DeLille Cellars, and Eternal Wines.

More than wine tasting: a variety of stores stay open late for evening shoppers, and selected restaurants offer dining specials for event guests. Take a detour along the riverfront trail for scenic vistas and glimpses of skydivers and hot air balloons. Meander through 150-year-old streets and surround yourself with Northwest history.

After the flag service, actors in period clothing will represent early Woodinville pioneers including Clara Teegarden, Woodinville's first school teacher; Susan Woodin, who along with her husband Ira founded Woodinville; Mary Hansen, who operated a boarding house for local mill workers, Manda Hinch, who sold her treasured side saddle in Tennessee before moving west; Seneca Phillis, a soldier in the Civil War; Flora Collicott Brown, who drove one of the earliest cars in the area - at the age of 12!
All are welcome to learn about the vibrant history of Woodinville’s early pioneers. The Cemetery is located at 13200 NE 175th Street. At the northeast corner of the cemetery is onsite parking and an entrance. Please note that no dogs are allowed inside the cemetery boundaries.
