Think Bothell for your next Woodinville wine tour
Thinking of Bothell, Washington as a wine-travel
resource might not come naturally to the Woodinville
wine-touring enthusiast, but local knowledge suggests
it's time to consider more than just its close proximity. The
City of Bothell and many of its businesses have put out the welcome
mat for wine enthusiasts and the wine-tourism market.
Bothell officials and members of its Chamber of Commerce are collaborating with many of the nearby Woodinville wineries to put together not only wine-related events in the river's edge historic district, but to work with area businesses to enhance their tourism services for the wine-touring enthusiast. The City's website ExploreBothell.com has been redesigned to showcase and emphasize topics of interest to these wine-centric travelers and to highlight the economic attractiveness of Bothell as an option for lodging and dining while wine touring in nearby Woodinville.
The City's Fall "Vintage Bothell"
was expanded to be a two-day event this year.
Watch for the Spring "Vintage Bothell" next year.
