Woodinville Wine Festival & Art Walk
NW News staff
The Woodinville Wine Festival & Art Walk will take place at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Aug. 9 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the winery's outdoor amphitheater. Featured will be the works of Northwest artists and craftspeople, live musical performances, wine and microbrew tastings and specialty food booths. Admittance is free.
Now in its 14th year, the Wine Festival & Art Walk features a juried arts and crafts show showcasing Northwest artisans. Works by well known glass artists Dale Chihuly and William Morris, whose works are part of Chateau Ste. Michelle's permanent collection, will be on exhibit in the winery's lobby and Manor House. More than a dozen wineries and microbreweries will offer tastings of their products for a fee of $1 per taste. Food booths and live musical entertainment, including a performance by jazz artist Darren Motamedy, round out the festival's program.
Net proceeds from the festival's wine and microbrew tastings will benefit the Wilmot Gateway Park, a community-designed park slated for construction in Woodinville in 1998. A second beneficiary will be the Alternating Hemiplegia Foundation of Washington. Alternating hemiplegia is a disease which affects very young children through repeated periods of paralysis.
Parking is available on the winery grounds. Chateau Ste. Michelle is located at 14111 145th St. NE Woodinville. Directions to the winery are available by calling 488-3300.
More information about the festival and advance purchase of tickets for wine and beer tastings is available by calling 485-5958.
