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.

This was for a wine tasting - so no food. There was one team member serving all of the tables. She did a super job. The wine was really quite good, and three bottles followed us home. 😁

Had a very enjoyable experience tasting over Memorial Day weekend. Matthew’s has a fantastic outdoor set up so you can make yourselves comfortable and enjoy beautiful scenery and great wine. Wine is well priced with a wide range of options for every pallet. Service was rushed as they were very busy

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.

I visited this winery recently during a trip to Woodinville, and really enjoyed the wine and ambiance! The food offerings are very limited, so I don’t recommend going hungry. Otherwise, we had a great experience and ordered wines to be delivered to our house.

Matthews Winery

So glad you enjoyed your time here at the tasting room Channing. We apologize for the limited selection of food when you were here and are working on having a larger stock of charcuterie and crudité options available all week long. In the future feel free to also bring your own food or have food delivered. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. 🥂

Honestly the worst winery tasting experience I have ever had. They sat us next to the port-o-potty (we had a reservation for the record) and when I asked if we could move to any of the (MULTIPLE) open tables as the port-I-potty ambiance wasn’t appealing, the server said no without explanation as to why. At the least, hang a curtain so guests aren’t right next to that.

The server either was new or had little to no wine knowledge, but kept getting what wines we wanted confused, making us flustered when ordering. Did not offer recommendations nor shared info about the grape when pouring- a pretty standard place thing to do when pouring a wine tasting. Finally, we gave him our credit card before our last tasting (none of the wines were great and we just wanted to get out of there) and he walked around with my credit card chatting with tables for 15+ minutes before checking back with us to see if we wanted any other wine. When I reminded him he had my credit card already and that we had requested he close the tab, he looked like he forgot and still took longer than acceptable to return so we could pay and go.

If you aren’t picky on wine and just want to go lay out a blanket and bring your family, the area on the hill seemed nice (you can’t wine taste out there but can buy a bottle). If you do that option, get the ‘18 chard- it was the only non dumpable one we found out of 8 wines tried. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Cute place! All reservations as of recently are 2 hours so you don’t feel rushed, which I appreciated. When we came they also were giving everyone a complimentary taste test of their rosè! We wanted to do a wine flight which is $15, and they go based off of your preferences instead of a typical flight that is pre set. The waitress was super nice and didn’t make us feel rushed, and only came around when our glasses were close to being empty. You can also bring your own snacks in to enjoy while sipping on wine.

Came for wine tasting while visiting WA for a couple of weeks. We brought our dog, and discovered that dogs are only allowed on the beautiful lawn which is only bottle service. We were going to have her wait in the car but the manager very nicely allowed us to sit in an empty section inside as she didn't want the dog to get hot. That was great as were the wines - left with a few bottles!

Probably the worst customer service I’ve experienced. Upon checking in for our outdoor reservation we were told it was bottle purchase only (had I known that when reserving I wouldn’t have continued). We were going to buy a bottle of red ($80) and asked if we could purchase a glass of rose for the one guest who doesn’t drink reds and were told by the manager that we could not and had to buy a bottle of rose and cork the rest to take home. However it’s an item on the menu. We chose to leave since we have young children and wanted the bigger space not to bother other guests at the covered tables. This experience has deterred me from going back

Thank you for the feedback and we apologize for your recent experience at Matthews. It sounds like there was a miscommunication here, as our open seating lawn area is bottle purchase only, but our reserved patio seating is not. We will share these notes with our team and continue to improve custom service via staff training. We hope to have the opportunity to have you back again, and we always appreciate any additional feedback. Cheers!

My wife and I started with a wine tasting. After sitting and enjoying the scenery we notice people were beginning to sit in the back patio area. We then purchased a bottle enjoyed a beautiful day in a very nice rear yard of the business in the shade next to a small creek.

Fun spot with great aesthetic and good wine. Only complaint was with the service. They did not pay attention to our table much, and oftentimes we found ourselves looking around to see if anyone was going to pour us another glass and they were not busy, just simply not paying attention. They also did not give us any information on the wines or the vineyards the grapes come from. Just pour and run.

It was cold and rainy that day but we’d love to come back to enjoy the outdoor garden area! We did not get food but given the wine was amazing I’m sure the food follows suit.
