Seattle-area wine tasting room closing: ‘Sad to see them go’

A popular wine tasting room in the Seattle area will close before the end of the year, according to KOMO.

Woodinville Wine Country, the tasting room of The Columbia Winery, will serve its last customers on Dec. 23, the winery’s parent company E. & J. Gallo confirmed in a statement to reporters. It has been serving both tourists and locals since 1988.

“As part of this consideration, E. & J. Gallo Winery has spent over a year exploring options in the area for an alternate tasting room site, and we have been unable to find a combination of location and business plan that would be viable,” the company wrote in part.

Wine club members discovered the closure from an email recently sent by Columbia Winery.

“I was actually very surprised, I’m in the wine club, I’m sad to see them go, but it’s always exciting because it means someone new is coming,” Molly Forbes Told KOMO.

Mayor of Woodinville Mike Millman called the tasting room a “special” part of town.

“We would also like to wish Columbia well and hope they can one day resume operations in our thriving city,” Millman said. “With more than 130 tasting rooms of wines, breweries and locally distilled whiskey, as well as many delicious dining options, Woodinville remains a destination for all types of food and drink lovers.”
