Winery
Matthews is a family owned and operated winery based in Woodinville, WA. We take our inspiration from the great wine blending techniques of Bordeaux and from the exceptional fruit that our state is producing. Our wines tip their hat to old world traditions, while embracing the energy and innovation of this ascendant wine region. Since 1992, Matthews has crafted red blends from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, and white wines exclusively from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

The Matthews Tasting Room & Farm is open daily for wine tastings. Situated on 8 aces in the heart of Woodinville wine country, a 20 minute drive from Seattle, we welcome you to come in and enjoy our wines in a serene farm setting. Our expansive lawn is open for seating without a reservation. Wine tastings are $15 for four tastes, and is waived with any bottle purchase.

Three of my friends first timers at a winery and overall we had a great experience. Had a reservation in the evening and we really enjoyed the string lights. Great service!

While the ambience and wine justified a return trip to Matthews, I unfortunately had a negative experience on the evening of Saturday 7-17. The woman serving my bf and I made it clear I was being difficult for ordering 3 of my tastings at the same time. (Kind of as a flight— I didn’t realize they typically serve one at a time). She called my boyfriend “the easier one” because he just started with one. She was condescending to me when she came back to ask which of my three whites I liked best. When I said which one, she replied: “look at you!”… I was shocked and upset at the consistent mockery and disrespect this woman treated me with. She proceeded to “forget” my 4th tasting and left us hanging for 30 minutes without any wine. Such a negative experience here… I won’t be returning unfortunately. I had a much better time at Maryhill down the road afterward, at least!

No dogs inside. Outdoor seating excellent. View. Tables chairs umbrella for everyone. At least an acre of grass and room to spare. Wine expensive. Tasting room beautiful. Plenty of space. Outdoor picnic area for sandwiches.
$80 for 3 full glasses of wine. We did not taste, because we had our dog and he was not allowed. So buy a glass of wine $28. Then sit outside.
This is not for your budget minded with pets! LOL.

Hi Richard, Thank you for the feedback!

We waited a very long time for someone to serve us our tasting. It would have been a better experience if they had brought us all the tastings at once so we could enjoy them and then decide on a full pour or bottle. By the time we finished the tasting we had already been there over 2 hrs and did not have time to enjoy a full pour.

The ambiance was wonderful. It had a low key, casual vibe. We loved our wine server. She was sweet, warm and made the experience fun. We sat on the covered lanai and it was cool and pretty. We did get a few whiffs on horse or some type of animal a couple of times. They offered charcuterie type options in a refrigerator that you could select yourself…it was fine…easy. But that is why I gave the food a 3.

We had a wonderful, memorable experience. We loved the Cabernet blends and I brought home a to die for claret!

Would definitely go again in a heartbeat. I felt prices weren’t reasonable.

So glad you enjoyed the service and sounds like found some new favorite wines with the Cabernet &Claret. We do allow you to bring outside food, in addition to our selection of charcuterie and crudité items. The smell most likely was from compost on our farm patch which can be come up when the heat hits it and the wind blows right. We try to accommodate our guests as much as possible when this happens to move them to another table. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers!🍷

The wine was good and the server we had was pretty good but they need to train their people better. For example we asked the server a simple question about case production and she had no clue.
The tasting room manager brusque and rude. She made us feel like we were imposing on her. She really ruined what could have been a good experience.

Seating was not comfortable. Wooden chairs that were hard and uncomfortable especially for the duration of the tasting. We were placed at a table that had a young woman that was loud in a not s pleasant way despite plenty of additional seating being available.

The Farmstead at Matthews Winery is my favorite place to taste/drink wine in Woodinville. The grounds are gorgeous - fresh flowers in the garden, a stream running through the property, cool, covered outdoor patio, and rustic indoor tasting room. The staff is warm and friendly, and it’s an added bonus that they welcome children and outside food/snacks. The claret wine is what brought me in to taste in the first place, and the consistently delicious, high-quality range of wines is what brings me back again and again.

Showed up and they had difficulty finding our reservation. Once we were seated it was 20 minutes before someone came to us for service, we were about to leave. Almost no acknowledgement that we were kept waiting for so long.
When I asked what were the most popular options on the “Pick 4” wine tasting, I got a “it’s all good wine” non answer.

Location is cool, wine was fine, but the service was quite poor.
