A view of Woodinville

Understand[edit]

Woodinville was founded in the late 19th century by Ira Woodin, and was a small logging town along the Sammamish River until the 1960s. At that time, the growth of Seattle caught up to it and it became a leafy and desirable suburb. In 1993, Woodinville was granted city status. Currently, it is at the center of Washington's wine industry although the grapes are grown elsewhere, there are over 75 wineries in the city and surrounding areas.

Get in[edit]

Woodinville is located 1 minute off Interstate 405 Exit 23 coming from Seattle. It is also 15 minutes north of Redmond via Redmond-Woodinville Road, and 20 minutes west of Duvall via Woodinville-Duvall Road. Near downtown there is a park-and-ride with connections to metropolitan King County. However, public transportation is few and far between so a car is recommended.
