**Due to Covid-19, reservations are limited to outside seating with a maximum of 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.

Thanks for the great experience. You have done a great job with setting up effective Covid19 plans. With the new standards. Consider live music to bolster customers. A guitar player would be perfect.

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.

Been going to Matthews winery for years. As the weather has gotten colder and indoor venues have become problematic for people wanting to maintain good social distancing, businesses running outdoor experiences while retaining their core value prop can be tricky. Matthews didn't disappoint, our table was outside the tent on a clear and reasonably mild day, heaters aplenty for everyone. There were people walking around with bottles of wine, merriment was on display, and Matthews has created a ton of room for people to spread out. Really nice short-format date for us, we'll definitely do that again.

We had a great time at Matthews winery! Within seconds of arriving, they greeted us with a welcome wine and showed us to our cozy table under a heater and tent. There was Christmas music playing and we had great service. The wine was good and there were only a couple that didn't suit my picky friend's palate - a win in my book!

Matthews is one of my favorite wineries to go to. We took friends who had never been. The tasting room was really busy, so we didn’t get the best service (which is understandable). The woman helping us was not knowledgeable but at least honest about it. Always great wine, but slightly disappointed it was not more of a standout for our friends.

The tasting fee is fair, but over half the wines were $80. The wines were ok, definitely not $80 worth. The experience was not great. The staff sat us at a table, asked what 4 wines we wanted, and dropped them off one by one. No tasting notes or conversation.

Hi Lauren, Thank you for the feedback.
