They’re here! If you’re curious about wineries with a sustainable focus, or interested in Seattle’s wine scene, my recent writing projects are now published.
Slow Wine Guide 2023
The secret is out! How do you find wines that are crafted with sustainable practices such as using grapes that are farmed without synthetic pesticides & herbicides? Get a copy of the Slow Wine Guide USA! The 2023 edition is now available.
I had the pleasure of interviewing 17 winemakers in Washington and Oregon for this edition, helping to grow the Pacific Northwest’s presence in this outstanding resource. It’s a true honor to spend time with these front runners as they walk me through their vines and pour their wines.
The guide may be ordered online via the Slow Food site.
Explore Seattle’s Urban Wineries in Pioneer Square and West Seattle
As a volunteer board member for Seattle Urban Wineries, I’ve been making the rounds to local tasting rooms. These day trips have inspired my latest articles on Explore Washington State.
If you think the only attraction worth visiting in Pioneer Square is the Underground Tour, think again! Three fantastic tasting rooms are within half a mile of each other. Plus, I share some insider recommendations for top places to eat, get coffee, peruse art, and shop. Get the whole run down on “Spending a Day in Pioneer Square.”
Go Wine Tasting in West Seattle
If you haven’t been to West Seattle since the bridge reopened, it’s time! Plan a day to explore three intimate tasting rooms along a one and a half mile stretch along California Avenue Southwest. Then discover some of the best eats in the neighborhood recommended by a resident winemaker.
There you have it, from slow wine to fun wine Itineraries in Seattle. For more wine travel inspiration see my itinerary for “Two Wine Soaked Days in Walla Walla,” or “How to Spend a Day in Woodinville Wine Country.”
