Run by a duo that got their start in Napa Valley, Adrice (pronounced similar to the word “address”) is a relative newcomer, opening its doors in 2016. The winery offers an assortment of blends, including cabernet sauvignon, syrah, sauvignon blanc, and even one called Rosé the Riveter; its label features the iconic Rosie the Riveter who became an icon for feminism during World War II.
This winery is ideal for anyone wanting a full experience. By that, we mean not only can you opt for a flight of five wine tastings (the selection changes monthly), but you can also sign up for private tours, courses to teach you how to appreciate the deep flavors of different wines, and even lessons in how to pair wines with different foods. Plus, during the summer months, regular concerts are held at the vineyard, adding to an already full experience.
Owner Chris Gorman spent more than a decade working in the wine industry — which included extensive travel throughout various European wine regions — before taking his wine commercial in 2002. Producing just 8,000 cases each year gives Gorman the freedom to truly focus on producing top quality vintages, and that’s exactly what he does. On the menu are a variety of wine types, including syrah, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and even a rosé.
These three are barely a taste of all there is to offer at the local vineyards. And when you make one of the many apartments near Woodinville Wine Country your home — in particular, at The Carter — you have easy passage to one of the most fruitful areas in all of Washington.
