  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Willows Lodge and its restaurant Barking Frog announce the third annual Golden Grapes Awards (GGA) ceremony and tasting will be held Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m. in the Sammamish Ballroom at Willows Lodge.

The event will celebrate the “best of the best” wines made in Woodinville Wine Country determined by the winemakers themselves.

The Golden Grapes Awards will be hosted by Matt Davis, Barking Frog wine director who invited more than 50 Woodinville wineries to compete this year.  Private tastings/judging by participating winemakers took place during February.  All GGA entries are reviewed in a side-by-side, blind tasting by category.

The goal is to find the best wines made in Woodinville in the following seven categories:

• Sauvignon Blanc

• Chardonnay

• Cabernet Sauvignon

• Bordeaux Style Blends

• Syrah

• Rhone Style Red Varieties

• Blends

The general public is invited to join the Woodinville winemakers for a special awards presentation and wine tasting event March 3.

Attendees will have the chance to taste many of the outstanding wines made in Woodinville Wine Country, as well as to meet and mingle with the winemakers themselves.

This is a 21+ event.  Tickets to the Golden Grape Awards ceremony and tasting are $15 for 15 tastes, if purchased in advance, or $25 at the door.

Tickets are available via EventBrite at
