Phase 2 Update (7/9/2020) – Visiting, Safety Measures and Tastings Guidelines. Please read before your visit.
First, thank you from all of us for your patience and continued support through this pandemic! We did some math, measured some stuff, and are excited to welcome you back to our Woodinville Winery Tasting Room in limited capacity within the guidelines issued by the State of Washington and the CDC. We will only be conducting tastings at our Winery Tasting Room for now, as there is more space to ensure proper distancing and sit outdoors, weather permitting. (19495 144th Ave NE Suite A110, Woodinville).
Tastings by reservation (same day often available). Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make a reservation for a tasting with us or give us a call between 12-4pm daily at 425.659.9463. You will be able to book online via a reservation system soon, but in the interim, this is the easiest way that we can make sure to accommodate you and your party at our Winery Tasting Room.
• Reserved Wine Tastings available: Fridays 3:30-5pm; Saturdays & Sundays 12-4:30pm
• Private Tastings available (one group at a time): Monday-Thursday 12-5pm; Sat & Sun 5:15-7pm
• Tinte Tunes (With a Twist) & glass pours: Fridays 6-8:30pm
Face coverings. We have taken extra measures to ensure that your tasting experience will be both fun and safe! Our team will be wearing face coverings and gloves and we ask guests to wear face coverings at all times, except when seated for tasting. We will have disposable masks for anyone who needs one.
No groups larger than 5. Under Phase 2, this is the largest group allowed.
Seated tasting flights. Tables are spaced 6 feet apart, and tastings will be conducted in a seated manner to limit interaction. The wines will be pre-poured, and you are welcome to taste at your own pace.
Single use items. All tasting materials are single use. You are welcome to take your plastic wine glass with you (think beach and poolside!)
Curbside and home delivery. Our Hollywood Hill location remains open for curbside pick up and home delivery within 20 miles of our tasting room, from 12-4pm daily.
Safety Measures & Tasting Guidelines – We have taken extra measures to ensure that your tasting experience will be both fun and safe!
What you can expect from us:
• We are placing the health and safety of you and our staff as our highest priority and we are taking extra precautions, above and beyond the regulations.
• All materials you receive will be single-use only; you’ll be provided with a Tinte plastic wine glass to drink from and take home for beach, patio and poolside enjoyment.
• Our staff will be wearing masks at all times – but know there is a welcoming smile behind every mask! Anytime we interact with you or touch anything you may touch, we will also be wearing gloves.
• We will be actively cleaning and disinfecting during your stay.
• We are excited to introduce you to some of the newest Tinte Cellars wines, and our continued support of the local community!
What we ask of you:
• Have fun!
• Please wear a mask at all times when you are not seated tasting wine (i.e. during arrival, departure, using the restroom).
• All seating will be distanced 6 feet apart – please do not rearrange our configuration without speaking to an employee first. We are unable to join groups together who did not confirm as a group, prior to arrival.
• Please use hand sanitizer during your stay.
• Please leave pets at home (service animals are the exception). If you have questions about this, please give us a call or email.
• Accompanied minors are included in your guest count for reservations.
• If you are sick, please plan your visit for another time – and let us know you won’t make it!

JUNE 5th Release! Tinte Cellars is gearing up for summertime with the release of our first rosé and it’s a dandy — 100% Rosé of Counoise! This gorgeous salmon-hued rosé will captivate lovers of fine wine and dazzle taste buds with flavors of stone fruit complemented by faint guava and grapefruit. From first glance to final sip, you’ll fall in love with our new Rosé of Counoise!
Carefully sourced and crafted with 100% Counoise (pronounced: koon-WAHZ), our winemaking team pressed whole clusters and fermented the fruit in one of our beautiful concrete eggs with yeast isolated in Bandol, France. This wine is perfect with seafood, grilled vegetables and bouillabaisse or on its own for easy summer sipping!
We’re releasing this gem on June 5, so don’t delay. And we have a special bonus: when you purchase six or more bottles of our new Tinte Cellars Rosé of Counoise you’ll receive a fun rosé t-shirt, while supplies last.
We aren’t stopping there! To top things off, we are also releasing another fan-favorite on June 5: our Tinte Cellars Sauvignon Blanc. Get ready for summer and fill your wine cooler today with these delicious Tinte Cellars’ wines!
On April 14th Tinte Cellars recognized the first Bottles for Bravery recipient and on May 20th we acknowledged our final awardee with a full heart. Receiving more than 100 nominations, each day for more than a month Tinte Cellars recognized pandemic heroes, from medical professionals to police officers to community organizers who’ve made a significant difference in the lives of so many.
We understand these 37 awardees represent only a tiny fraction of those who’ve been at the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are countless others who bravely serve in healthcare facilities, in public service, in our grocery stores and on the farm.
Tinte Cellars was founded on the belief of stepping up and giving back. “Through Tinte Cellars, we aim to blend our passion for creating exceptional wine with our deep commitment to engaging others and helping our community to thrive. After all, one of the very best things about great wine is its ability to bring people together,” said Teresa Spellman Gamble, co-owner of Tinte Cellars.
We are proud of how our community has pulled together during this challenging time and we’re encouraged by the love and compassion we’ve witnessed. We’re grateful to our Bottles for Bravery recipients, to all the first responders and essential workers, and to the greater Washington State community. Be well!
Join Tinte Cellars as we send some love to those who may be isolated or lonely in our community. Pick up a pen or crayon, and create a handwritten letter or card to brighten their day. We’re partnering with the Northshore Senior Center, who will disperse our love letters.
1. Letters must be legible (large print) and handwritten. No worries if you aren’t artistic – make your card like one you would like to receive.
2. Embrace creativity! Recipients will love it when the letters are personal. We encourage you to make your letters detailed, thoughtful and heartfelt.
3. Be kind and thoughtful (more than talking about yourself). This is a one-way letter exchange, meaning you will not receive a letter back. No reciprocation is part of the beauty of your act of kindness, and the recipients won’t feel burdened by feeling obligated or being unable to respond.
4. Avoid using religious themes, phrases or quotes.
5. Exclude the date (day, month, year).
6. Please put your letters in an envelope but do not seal it. If you are sending more than one letter, leave all the enveloped letters unsealed and unstamped and put them in a larger envelope or box to send.
7. Please exercise health-aware precautions, such as cleaning your writing instruments, and wearing gloves and a mask when you are writing your letter
Anything to make the elderly smile and feel connected to something outside of their house would be greatly appreciated!
Mail the letters/cards to the following:
