Puget Sound is a large area with clusters of wineries in the Olympic Peninsula, Islands, Seattle, Woodinville, Snohomish County and South Puget Sound. Due to the size of the region, it would be impossible to tour this entire region in one day. Because there is a concentratration of wineries in Seattle andWoodinville, they are each given their own category and not included here. Scroll down to browse the wineries of the Puget Sound wine region.
There area a few approaches to the Olympic Peninsula from the Seattle side which may or may not include a ferry ride. They are all long enough that I recommend staying overnight on the peninsula for this tour. This is one of the most scenic and relaxing winery tours. The ferry ride gives you a completely different perspective than driving in Eastern Washington and the atmosphere is more casual and relaxing. There are 6 wineries that call the Olympic Peninsula their home and are mostly concentrated in Port Angeles and Port Townsend. It may be possible for you to include a stop at an island winery (Bainbridge Island Winery or Whidbey Island Winery & Vineyard) on the way to or from the peninsula.
The islands of the Puget Sound that have wineries include Whidbey, San Juan, Bainbridge and Lopez. From Seattle a ferry ride is required to all, however Whidbey and Bainbridge Islands can be accessed via car from other points. Bainbridge Island has 6 wineries, 3 within walking distance of the ferry terminal (hint: Seattlites can walk on the ferry in Seattle and visit 3 tasting rooms without driving). Whidbey Island has one winery and GreenBanks Farm that features wines from all over the Puget Sound. Lopez and San Juan Islands have one winery each.
Whatcom County offers 9 wineries to tour in and around the Bellingham area (about 2 hours north of Seattle). These wineries focus on wines made from grapes sourced from both the Puget Sound and Yakima Valley.
The South Puget Sound is home to over 20 wineries, many open by appointment only. This winery region is not really set up for wine touring in the traditional sense. The wineries are spread out over a large area and some are bonded wineries within the winemakers house. This area reaches from Tacoma to Centralia, Olympia north to Shelton and Hoodsport.
