**Due to Covid-19, reservations are limited to 2 households per table.**

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.

You can bring your own food to Matthews! It’s nice to pack your own picnic.

What a nice outing, sat outdoors in the sun, attentive serviced from the pouring staff, love the format where you get to pick ANY 4 wines to taste (v. a dictated sequence), people around but not so many that it felt crowded or COVID-close. Fantastic wine as usual.

The wines at Matthews are always excellent, as are the staff. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly, as well as so knowledgeable about the Matthews, Tenor, and Jaine wines. The indoor and outdoor tasting areas are both very conducive to socializing with friends and to the wine tasting experience.

So appreciate the folks at Matthews. They went above and beyond and held our reservation when we were stuck in traffic and then didn't make us feel rushed even though they were packed and another reservation on our table later.

Also, the wines are always excellent.

Love Matthews! Got a reservation for my second visit here but the snow forced them to close their main venue. We ran into the owners outside and they directed down the street to their new facility, Jaine. Everyone who works here goes out of their way to create a genuine experience. You can bring your own food or buy one of their many charcuterie options from a vending machine. 10/10 recommend

We experienced very slow and inattentive service despite being one of only two tables present our venture visit. The wine was great, but I think we’ll take our business elsewhere next time. We started with the wine tasting, and waited close to 20 minutes between pour 1 and 2.

When we arrived early there were plenty of tables but they placed us in the back next to the opening and near the port a Jon. I spoke with the host and she moved us, but told me I owe her. Two of four were offered the complimentary tasting so I requested two more.
Our server was a bit flustered and didn’t pour all the correct pours for each person. When he showed up with the next bottle to pour he just stood there and told us to finish what’s in our glass. I told him I was not going to shoot my wine and he could bring another glass if he’s in a rush. I also explained that I was our driver and would’ve hoped he’d understand. Instead he seemed put out.
Another member of my group asked if she got all her pours (which she had, but was not paying attention). He argued for a good minute with her telling her she was wrong. Too bad bc instead of arguing he could’ve just given her another pour.
Not the best.
