Sky River somehow makes mead approachable instead of something you only thought Medieval nobles swilled in between bites of mutton. Their honey wine is light, not overly sweet, and comes in flavors like blackberry and cherry vanilla that thankfully don’t taste like pie. The meadery has a few sofas, a little gift shop, and a very nice dog, but the best place to drink is out on the front slope, where you can sit on Adirondack chairs and take in the fantastic view of Woodinville as well as the very steep driveway that you stumbled up earlier. The cheapest flight here is only $5, which you could easily find on the street or in someone’s pocket.
