Russell’s and Woodinville Wine Tasting

Looking for a way to spend your Saturday?  No need to look further.  Located in Woodinville, WA there is a plethora of wineries for your tasting pleasure.  And looking for a delicious meal to cap off the day (or to enjoy another)?  Russell’s is a tucked away gem in Bothell.  Russell Lowell is known for creating fine fare, providing a great selection of Northwest wines, catering, and more.

Not only does Russell’s cater, they have a cafe at Molbak’s, a beautiful loft “The Loft” for weddings and events, and it hosts a Winemaker Dinner Series every month.  View the website for the schedule.  My definition of the decor is Pacific Northwest, classic, rustic elegance – love it!  Russell’s serves breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday and dinner every night of the week, except Monday.  Russell’s menu is varied and speaks Pacific Northwest.  On this night, our party’s mouth-watering choices included the Classic Chopped Caesar Salad (satisfying), New Bedford Sea Scallops (fabulous), Gorgonzola and Walnut Ravioli (rich and delectable), Grilled Salmon, Double Cut Pork Chop, Pan Seared Chicken Breast, and more (a little bit of everything, eh?)  The bread served with the balsamic dipping oil was especially flavorful.  The corkage fee of $10 was appreciated.  The recommended dessert of the evening was the Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp (seasonal).  I will definitely be back!

And while you are in the area, why not take in some wine tasting at the numerous wineries and tasting rooms in Woodinville?  Picnic. Enjoy the outdoor seating. Cool off in the cellar. Learn something new.  Take a bottle (or a case) home with you.
