Washington Wine Tours

Vin Wine and Events now offers private wine tour itineraries throughout Eastern Washington. Leave the hubbub of the west side and engulf yourself in Washington’s wine culture.  Visiting Washington Wine Country offers a new way to experience WA wine culture. You are able to walk vineyards, discover our unique terroir, experience the grape growing region and just slow down to take in the beauty.

We want to make this Washington Wine experience unique to you and your wine travel desires. Whether you want to scope out the hot hills of the Wahluke Slope, visit the oldest AVA, Yakima Valley or experience most climatically diverse growing region of Walla Walla, we will personalize a wine tour to fit your needs.

We develop your plans and send you on the way. No tour bus to wait for, no time restrictions, no forced winery marches. You tell us your wine wishes and we develop a list of wineries to visit that will exceed your expectations.

Personalized Wine Tour Itineraries start at $25 for a two day wine tour which also includes local restaurant ideas, hotels/lodging recommendations  and transportation guides.

We are also able to make special arrangements at specific wineries for personal vineyard tours, private luncheons and meetings with the wine makers. Please contact us for more specific information and pricing.

***April Special***

For the month of April we will develop your personal wine tour itinerary for only $15!! This is perfect for those wanting to leave the dreary west side weather for sunny Eastern Washington!! (*this does not include the special arrangement add-on’s). This deal expires April 30th! Contact us at vinwineseattle@gmail.com or 206-300-4495 today!!

Back to School

Kids are back in school, leaves are changing color and Halloween decorations are displayed in the stores (sigh). This can only mean one thing, fall is here. Which means its time to focus on lush red wines and hearty whites! I know we drink all types of wine all year long, but when fall approaches I tend to crave a velvety Russian River Pinot Noir, a full bodied Chardonnay or a peppery Nero d’Avola from Sicily. Wines to warm me up,  not fill me up.

To help celebrate this colorful fall season, we are offering a Fall into Wine tasting! 5 wines to welcome you into Fall – two whites and three reds. This tasting is a perfect introduction to this new season. An ideal tasting to try new wines, celebrate the kids going back to school or for a weekend get together. We come to you with the 5 wines, glasses, wine education, tasting notes and fun.  All for just $125 for up to 15 people! Email us to book or for more questions: vinwineseattle@gmail.com

Book your tasting now!

Celebrate January!

A Vin ExperienceWow… November and December were packed with many holiday Vin’s. We had such a good time celebrating with our Vin customers. And boy, do they know how to throw parties….

We were also lucky to connect with another local business, Queen Anne Dispatch, and combine a Vin tasting with boutique shopping. What a fantastic turn-out we had. Thank you for all those who stopped by. We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday gifts!

Even though January seems like a ho-hum month, with Vin Wine and Events that can change. Now is the time you can hang out with the people you really want to hang with. Obligatory holiday parties are over, which means more YOU time. So, why not spark January up with a private wine tasting.. in your own home. Invite your close friends over, put out a few nibbles and we provide the rest. Check out our Experiences page for all our offerings. We have something for everyone.

Make your 2016 resolution to drink more good wine.. and let us help you with that.

Celebrate January!

Summer Vin Specials

August is around the corner and summer is in full swing. With all this heat, we have been in love with rose’s and bubbles. Nothing has been tasting better than sparkling wines on the patio with friends. And summer doesn’t officially end until Labor Day, right? So we have plenty of time to continue our patio wine obsessions.

Which brings us back around to Vin Wine and Events! We are still offering our rose special until Labor Day weekend. 5 roses, 5 different regions, $99. You get to learn all about these fabulous all wines while enjoying them with your friends. A great way to spice up books clubs, family get together’s or just to all around impress your friends.

With that, we are offering a case (12 bottles) of WA wine again for between $250-$275 (price depending on the wines)! Get a case of small vineyard, boutique Washington only wines…  This is a great deal to learn more about the Washington AVA’s and stock up your cellar (or wine rack, closet…etc.). We include a write up on all the wines in your case. Cases are mixed with white and red wines. Email us today to take advantage of this fantastic offer! Oh, and we deliver  (greater Seattle area only)! How cool is that?!
