Passport to Woodinville wineries

Local wine lovers are invited to sample wines from 14 Woodinville wineries April 13-14 when Washington's Eastside wineries host the first "Passport to Woodinville" weekend.
   Guests are invited to visit Woodinville wine tasting rooms, including several rarely open to the public, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
   Filled with labels and winery information, the Passport entitles the guest to tastes of exclusive wines or barrel samples at each Passport stop.
   Participating wineries are: Betz Family Winery, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Columbia Winery, DeLille Cellars, DiStefano Winery, Domaine Ste. Michelle, Facelli Winery, Hedges Cellars, Januik Winery, JM Cellars, Matthews Cellars, Novelty Hill, Silver Lake Winery, and Snoqualmie Vineyards.
   Several wineries without local tasting rooms will pour their samples at the Willows Lodge, 14580 NE 145th St., Woodinville.
   Passports can be used throughout the weekend once at each stop.
   Passports may be purchased for $15 at Willows Lodge or any participating winery on the days of the event (cash or checks only).
