One of the most ambitious tasting rooms to debut in Woodinville in recent years, this acclaimed Bordeaux-style winery has expanded in the old three-story Redhook Brewery plant. The main floor, capacity 100, is open to the public, though a reservation system is set up to avoid overcrowding. The upper two floors are for wine club members and include a wine library boasting 1,235 bottles. There are also a 64-seat rooftop bar, private tasting rooms and a fireplace on the top floor. DeLille’s signature red, D2, is much loved, but don’t miss the winery’s Chaleur Blanc. At $35, it’s one of the best values for white Bordeaux-style blends you can find in the United States. Food and wine pairings are offered Fridays through Sundays, and by next spring, the staff will start hosting wine tours. Also, DeLille will have a new neighbor come March when Sparkman Cellars moves into the Redhook building.

House of ‘Pagne
A Champagne bar has come to Seattle, but it’s not situated in the sort of high-end demographic area you might expect. House of ‘Pagne is holed up in the Sodo Urban Works industrial complex with a dozen other wine tasting rooms and Ethan Stowell‘s San Juan Seltzery. Started by the couple behind Structure Cellars Winery, House of ‘Pagne features 30 different Champagne and sparkling wines by the glass. Prices are as low as $7 a glass, $15 for a flight of three sparkling wines, and $25 for three glasses of Champagne. Champagne by the glass ranges from $13 to $20. But if you came to high-roll, there’s always Cristal ($350 a bottle).
