Winemaker Joins Expanding Downtown Woodinville’s Woodin Creek Village
Woodinville, WA – Brian Carter Cellars announces the opening of a new Tasting Room and Bistro
located in Woodin Creek Village in downtown Woodinville on Wednesday, March 2. After
operating for many years near the Hollywood area in Woodinville, Brian Carter Cellars joins nearly
20 other wineries and restaurants that have opened recently, or will soon, in the Woodin Creek
“We are excited to be a part of Woodin Creek, an evolving urban village located in the heart of
Woodinville. I’ve always believed that enjoying food with wine is a much more fulfilling wine
tasting experience. Opening a new tasting room in Woodinville with a full kitchen is the
culmination of a dream, which we began when we opened our space on the Vancouver, WA
waterfront in 2020. Our open kitchen will allow guests to watch Chef Nicholas Ames in action and
enjoy dishes carefully paired with the full selection of Brian Carter Cellars wines. We also look
forward to offering expanded wine education, culinary and live music experiences in our new
location. The new space will also be available to rent for private events,” said Brian Carter.
