As always, the four wines tasted were wonderful. We had four reds (no choice due to COVID). They were Abracadabra Red, Tuttorosso, Le Coursier, and Solesce. The weather was nice to sit out on the patio, and be served outside. There was really no need to go inside because the staff would come out to wait on you, and bring your purchases, too.
We brought our own food, so that rating was based on our food.

We were a few minutes late for our reservation. When we checked in the host seated us at an outside table, which we had chosen. There were dirty tables near us, it was not “busy” and waitstaff walked past our table several times with no greeting for us. We gave the benefit of the doubt and waited about 15 minutes before we got up and left. Disappointing.

We didn’t eat while we were here but we were so fortunate to arrive on a warm, sunny afternoon. We had reservations and were seated outside. It was busy and the staff scrambled to serve us. The wines were delightful and we bought a Tuttorosso to enjoy this evening!

This is a winery tasting room, not a restaurant. Opentable needs to modify their process to recognize this.

We first checked in at the front but I had to use the restroom. When we checked in, we were never told where to sit so when I returned we had to wait several minutes to check in with another person. We were then told we could sit anywhere outside and they would come out to us. After sitting for 20-25 minutes we again had to go to the front to let them know we had never received service. They finally brought our wine tasting out to us after we complained and never again checked on us. Never asked if we wanted any food, what we thought of the wine, etc.
Essentially, they were either overbooked or understaffed. When we were able to get service it was impersonal. The wine did not impress enough to make up for the lacluster experience.

My friend and I rode our bikes to Brian Carter to do some wine tasting and use our Passport to Taste. We had a great time! The people working there were super friendly and very accommodating. They were able to give us tastings of the Oriana and the port that were not on the tasting menu. Yum. We were also able to sit at a table right by our bikes. I gave a one star for food because we didn’t eat.

I’ve been to Brian Carter several times and loved it. We decided to visit on Valentines Day and booked a table. We knew that several local wineries were closed because of snow, and reflected that when trying to book a reservation

After driving by i for 20 years, we went wine tasting at Brian Carter Cellars. We were using the Woodinville wine tasting passport. No problem. The wines were excellent. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable about their wines. I look forward to going back!

We had so much fun. There was plenty of outdoor seating. Felt very safe. Wine tastings were poured into carafes for us. Arielle was awesome and made sure we were taken care of! We will be coming back!

We understood it would be cold because we have to sit outside, but we were sitting next to a heater that was not turned on and it wasn't ever offered to us. The server never came back after giving us our flight. It wasn't even very busy, so it was just a little disappointing. I liked the white wine, but the other ones just weren't great in my opinion.

BC has changed the way they do wine tastings by giving you a tray with all the tastings at once so you pour your own and there is a tasting note on the tray. Great way to do it during this time of COVID. Good job.

I have loved this tasting room for years! Delish wines, indoor out door seating and great staff. Not to mention if you get time with Brian hinself your sure to learn something you never knew about wine!
