The Passport to Woodinville starts selling tickets in February each year for their popular wine country tour season. This special event happens every April and is very popular with Seattle area locals. It's one of the only days in the year that all participating wineries in Woodinville are open at the same time.
Wine enthusiasts that want to go can opt to go one day or both days over a weekend in April (2010 dates are April 17 and 18) to taste wines at 30 wineries in Woodinville. The wineries open their doors to Passport holders from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Passport holders enjoy tastings along with the chance to taste special selections from local wineries. You can also purchase wines that are only sold exclusively at winery tasting rooms.
Two day - $60
Sunday only - $40

How Does it Work?
- Order your Passport to Woodinville tickets early as this event sells out fast each year.
- The weekend before the event pickup your Passports and glasses (along with a map of the participating wineries) at Columbia Winery. Be sure to bring a copy of your confirmation with you to pick up your items as well as your I.D.
- Take your Passports and map with you the day of the event. Your Passport will be stamped as you visit each winery (they are valid only once at each stop during your selected passport day).
Enjoy wine tastings and hors doeuvres and be sure to have a designated driver in your group to get everyone home safely. Note: Do not go to the wineries without your passport and tasting glass. Only designated drivers will be allowed into the wineries without a Passport. And most of all have fun!
