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.
Thank you for the positive feedback, Bartcho! We hope to see you again soon.
Always love visiting Matthews ! Great service and amazing
Thank you for the lovely review, Audrey!
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.
Thank you for the feedback and we apologize for your recent experience at Matthews. 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!
We didn't have any food (asked in rating section, but I'm sure it would've been great
Thanks for stopping by, Rich!
They make you feel so welcome and their recommendations are excellent. The claret is my favorite!
Thank you for your support, Susan! The Claret is one of our favorites, too.
Enjoyed our wine tasting and charcuterie offerings. Friendly staff and great wines!
Thank you for the kind words, Ben! We hope to see you again soon.
Matthews wine is excellent! They have done a great job of creating outdoor space for everyone to stay safe while tasting.
Thank you for the nice review, Dianne! Our guests' comfort and safety is always our top priority. Cheers!
Great experience! Lots of outdoor seating with heaters.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us, Paris! We hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Amanda our server was wonderful. I am always hopefully she will be there! Knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and attentive!
Thank you for the kind words, Megan! We'll be sure to pass them along to Amanda.
We always like tasting wine at Mathews Winery, staff is always friendly and helpful. Wines are reasonably priced and we like having the choice to pick the 4 wines for our tasting.
Thank you for the lovely review, Kim! We hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Matthews has a huge outdoor tent with open sides. Our server let us decide how we wanted to taste our four wines for $15. We decided to do two at a time. Great wines, but they are expensive!
Thank you for your visit, Mia!
I would give five stars on everything, but since we had to sit outside, it was a bit CHILLY!! The heaters helped, but it was still a bit cold for me. Nothing really to change, just can't wait till we can be inside again!
Thanks for stopping by, Vicki!
Could use a few more outdoor heaters!!
Overall good experience.
Love the wine!
Thanks for the feedback! We hope to see you again soon.
Matthews is a beautiful winery with exceptional wines! They know me by name and always give excellent customer service. They have pop up events and sell vegetables and herbs and flowers grown on their farm. I can’t recommend them enough!
Thank you so much for your continued support, Debbi. Cheers!
Wine is expensive, tasting at $15 pp seemed other the top given that service felt very basic. She poured and never came back. We bought $80 bottle to save for special occasion.
Keep us posted on the special occasion!
Great for date, but need fire pits
Thanks for stopping by!
Love Matthew’s and think this is such a fun, beautiful and down to earth spot with a great outdoor area. Every time I come here I wish they served better food. The only food they have is grab and go snacks
Hi Amy, Thank you for the feedback! We’re sorry that the food at Matthews didn’t meet your expectations. In addition to the wide assortment of charcuterie that we serve at our winery, customers are always more than welcome to bring their own food or have some delivered by a food delivery service to the tasting room. We’re glad that you enjoyed the rest of your experience with us! It’s always a pleasure to share our wines with you and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Great service! Also great outdoor space. Felt very safe and clean.

Thanks for stopping by, Nancy!
Great outdoor seating with cover and heaters. Great experience!
Thank you for the nice review, Tonya! We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. Cheers!
Favorite wine in WA! I highly suggest a visit if you love Bordeaux blends.
Hi Kim, Thank you for the great review! We're so glad to hear that you love our wine. Cheers!
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.
Hi MatthewsRocks (great name!), Thank you for the nice review! We're always grateful for the opportunity to share our wine and merriment with you. We hope to see you again soon!
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!
Hi Christy, Thank you for the lovely review! We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. Cheers!
Always love my time here! Great wine and people and gorgeous surroundings.
Hi Vickie, Thank you for your glowing review! We look forward to your next visit.
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.
Hello, We apologize your visit was not what you had hoped it would be. We constantly encourage our staff to learn and be curious about our wines, and we will continue to do so. Thank you for supporting our winery, and we hope to have the opportunity to give you improved service during you next visit. Cheers, Matthews
They did a great job taking care of us during the tasting.
Hi Theresa, We're glad you enjoyed your service during your tasting! Thank you for leaving such a kind review.
This place is wonderful! Great wine, ambience, and it was even comfortable sitting outside on a cold and wet November night. The heat lamps and tent kept us warm and gave us plenty of coverage from the rain. Cannot recommend this place enough.
Hello, Thank you for visiting us and leaving such a lovely review! We're happy to have been able to share our wines with you over the weekend. We welcome you to come back anytime!
We loved our time at Matthews! The wine, ambiance, service, and safety precautions are all excellent! I highly recommend this as a "go to" with out of town friends and family who would like to experience Woodinville Wine Tasting!
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit, and we are looking forward to hopefully seeing you again soon.
Great space! Great wine! Will be back
Thank you for your review. We look forward to your next visit!
This is a winery, no food served. They provide the ability to purchase some cheese trays and other snacks that are well done. You can bring your own food also.
Wine is awesome and staff is fantastic
Hi Andrea, Thank you for the lovely review! It's a treat for us to to be able to share our wines with you and we're glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon! Cheers, The Matthews Winery Team
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. We believe that the quality of our more expensive wines merits a higher price point, but we also offer a wide variety of delicious, less-expensive wines at $24 per bottle. We will share these notes with our tasting room 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!
Very very cold! The heaters are not powerful enough or placed frequent enough to heat the outdoor space. Wines are pricey. The ambiance is very nice.
Hi Tulip, Thank you for the feedback and we apologize for your recent experience at Matthews. We are actively improving the heating in our tents, and have additional heaters on the way. As you can imagine, they are in high demand for all businesses. We hope to have the opportunity to have you back again, and we always appreciate any additional feedback.
Lovely setting. Excellent wine. I'd recommend visiting Matthews.
Not sure why you’re calling me Steve. That’s not my name, but live Matthews. Didn’t eat anything so can’t comment on food
We had a great time at Matthews Winery! Highly recommend the tasting flight and purchasing a bottle to waive the tasting fee. Loved the Jaine chenin blanc!
Date with Friends
Aboslutely love Matthews! They have some of the best wine around and it's a beautiful place to hang out and grab a bottle or taste with friends. I've gone here many times and will visit again.
Love Matthews winery! We enjoyed a tasting, got to pick 4 wines off their menu. They allow you to bring in lunch or snacks which we did. Outdoor seating made our get together safer. They have an amazing garden to walk through and marvel. Definitely try the reserve Sauvignon blanc and the Claret!
Loved it. My daughter and I had our wine and snacks outside. Heaters in place and tables 6’ apart and masks worn. Well done Matthews.
