Duration: 8.5 hours; $220; Experience the essence of Washington's wild beauty and independent spirit on this journey to Snoqualmie Falls and Woodinville Wine Country. Start your day at Snoqualmie Falls where you'll watch the powerful waters plunge 268 ft. into the river canyon below. The waterfall is nestled in the evergreen forests of the Cascade Mountains, which cut across the state and divide the lush coastal climates of the West from the dry, vineyard-rich regions of the East. Your guide will use these evocative settings to tell stories of Snoqualmie tribe members who lived off these lands and settlers who fought to tame the wild environment with agriculture and logging. After exploring the Falls, you'll travel northwest to Woodinville Wine Country for a gourmet picnic lunch and wine tastings at three wineries that deliver on elegance but leave pretense at the door. Learn to sip like a sommelier with a fun lesson on wine tasting techniques and the flavor profiles of different varietals. Meet passionate wine makers and hear the processes used to craft the wine in your glass. Experience Woodinville's tight-knit community and taste award-winning wines that are rarely found outside of the state. Washington is the second biggest wine-producer in the country but exports only 1% of its wine! From trails to terroir, you'll come away with an understanding of how Washington wine is intertwined and influenced by its dramatic surroundings and enthralling natural history.
