Mark Ryan Winery
Maybe it’s the wine talking, but a lot of the tasting rooms in Woodinville tend to blur together - Sometimes it doesn’t matter where you drink Roussanne straight from the bottle while sitting on a picnic blanket as long as you’re drinking Roussanne straight from the bottle while sitting on a picnic blanket. Mark Ryan is the winery that stands out, and it’s simply because they make the best wine. Everything they produce is excellent, from the Numbskull GSM to the Viognier. Stick around for an hour or so and savor them slowly in the art-covered tasting room. It’s all worth the higher price tag, but they also have a more reasonable label called Board Track Racer where you can get something like a nice $15 Chardonnay. Use Mark Ryan as your first stop on a tour of many tasting rooms, or as your only stop if you’re just going to pick one for some reason.
