There seems to be a lot of excitement about this year’s new and improved St. Nicholas Day Open House Weekend in Woodinville, Nov. 30 - Dec. 2. In fact, Friday evening Saint Nick’s at Night event is already sold out, according to officials at Woodinville Wine Country.
While the Friday Night wine tasting is sold out, there’s room for everyone at Chateau Ste. Michelle for the family friendly Christmas Tree lighting on Friday, Nov. 30 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. There will be hot cider, popcorn, coffee, cookies, candy canes, and live music by the Woodinville High School Choir.
Tickets for Saturday and Sunday are still available but going fast, said Gretchen Smith with Woodinville Wine Country. The Saturday and Sunday Open House weekend is a great opportunity to visit many of the Woodinville wineries, discover new wines, meet some of the winemakers themselves and get a jump on your holiday shopping.
With the price of a ticket comes complimentary wine tasting at all participating wineries, a commemorative wine glass, and tote bag. Plus, every Saint Nick’s ticket holder will receive coupons featuring fantastic savings on wine shopping needs (dinners, parties, hostess gifts, office gifts, etc.)
