The city of Woodinville (map), with approximately 11,000 residents, is situated in parts of two counties—northeastern King County and southeast Snohomish County. It is most known for its Wine Country region that has now expanded to include local distilleries and breweries. From the notable Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery to small boutique wineries scattered around the valley and “Warehouse” District located in north Woodinville, Woodinville offers visitors to taste celebrated, awarded wines, some of which are only available directly at the wineries. Wine tours, chef-inspired paired wine dinners, fundraisers, and local outdoor concerts are among the many Wine Country events hosted annually.

Woodinville is a charming mix of residential areas located in 7 distinct geographical neighborhoods, light industrial areas, Tourist District, and retail-centric Town Center.  Located east of Seattle and north of Kirkland, the Woodinville community enjoys the convenience of being near several major metropolitan centers while maintaining the livability of all that is great about small town life. Both the Northshore School District and Lake Washington School District serve the residents of Woodinville in award-winning style.

Residents come by their love of everything green naturally and are passionate about the city’s environment and its beautiful woodland landscape. Surrounded by the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and the rugged beauty of the Olympics and Mount Rainier, Woodinville is committed to preserving its natural beauty.
