Wine, Cheese & Chocolate
Two of the most common foods people enjoy with wine are cheese and chocolate; but most people don’t know that there is a real art to pairing them properly. Join us on a wine pairing journey and meet local winemakers who share in our passion of wine and food pairing. Learn basic techniques to successful matching of wines and foods. Savor the flavors of the perfectly matched wine and cheese; and wine and chocolate. Available for groups of 8+ and subject to availability.

Wine Blending Workshop
Be a Winemaker for a Day! Making wine is science. Blending wine is Art. Join us for this memorable workshop where the winemakers will educate you on the art of blending and explain what they look for when creating their blends. Guests will sample three different red wine varietals and learn what differentiates them from one another. Then, the magic is up to the individual. Guests will create their own unique blends based on their preferences. Once they’ve found the balance that pleases their palate, they’ll be invited to fill and cork their bottles. Because pretty matters, everyone will create their very own label (crayons provided) and wax or foil the top to complete the packaging.
Available for groups of 10+ guests on mutually agreed dates/times.
Transportation and/or lunch/dinner can be included.
For The Love of White
Let’s spend an afternoon celebrating white wine! From bubbly to still, naked to oaked, dry to off dry, this white wine excursion has something for everyone. We’ll showcase our favorites of the delicious and interesting white wines made not only right here in Woodinville but from around the state. Learn about white wine varietals, characteristics, flavor profiles, and serving guidelines. Rose’ all day anyone?

A Connoisseur’s Experience
Tastes mature just as wines do. If you’ve already enjoyed years of wine tasting and countless winery tours, then you’re ready for a new Washington wine experience. This tour doesn’t help find your preferences; it starts with them. Instead of an introduction to the wide variety of Woodinville wines, you’ll explore within the variety and quality you’ve cultivated a taste for. It’s less breadth and more depth. Ask us to include a wine-paired meal for a complete connoisseur’s experience.
Best for groups of 6-8
Custom Events and Dinners
Let’s face it, there are several scenarios where a traditional wine tour just wouldn’t be a good fit. Group size, time allowance and level of interest all play in to creating a memorable event. In addition to our wine excursions, Barrel Wine Tours also offers our services to help you plan your corporate or special event. Our relationships and industry knowledge take the guess work out of planning an event for any size group. Whether you’re looking for Wine paired dinners, cooking classes, wine blending workshops or dinner and a show, Barrel Wine Tours is here to help.
