Welcome to Woodinville
A charming town full of heart in wine country, surrounded by wildlife and undeveloped nature
Situated in King County, Washington, a mere 30-minutes northeast of Seattle, is the charming Woodinville, full of nature and beauty. Developed in the late 1800s, this town has a rich history in farming, logging, and the railroads, which the Woodinville Heritage Society sets out to educate residents. As time passed and the town grew, it kept roots in farming and became quite the wine country, drawing in visitors from all over to enjoy its tasting rooms. Residents also enjoy plenty of parks and recreation, with the Sammamish River Trail running through the area and the waterfront parks along the river.
Of course, the wine and natural beauty are only part of the charm Woodinville offers, with its neighborhoods making up the rest. Here you’ll find gorgeous homes that range from ranches to stunning contemporary styles, large lots, tree-lined streets, and friendly neighbors. The neighborhood's access to lush, green forests and mountain trails means plenty of wildlife and nature to explore on the weekends as well. Proximity to major cities makes Woodinville more appealing because residents enjoy the laid-back, natural lifestyle with the ease of commuting.
