Today, we’ll venture east of the city to the Woodinville area, known for chardonnay, riesling, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. There are more than 70 wineries and 40 tasting rooms here. Two wineries of note in the area are Columbia and Chateau Ste. Michelle. Spend the night at Willows Lodge, a rustic retreat where every room has a fireplace and soaking tub.

Stop for lunch at Gilbert Cellars’ tasting room in Yakima, then head to Desert Wind Winery situated on a bluff overlooking the scenic river.
