Seattle Wine Tours mentioned in Seattle Times article

Even local limousine services picked up on the trend toward local wine tasting.

Mary Chacon, a chauffeur for Bayview Limousine Service for the past six years, sees more and more competition for trips to Woodinville.

Bayview set up a website this summer,, to promote that aspect of the business.

“A lot of customers are looking for wine tours and wouldn’t think to look to a limousine service for that,” said Bayview’s business development manager, Joe Matthys. A four-hour tour in a Lincoln Town Car costs less than $300 and includes up to four wineries.

Chacon, who bought wine and wine accessories from Chateau Ste. Michelle’s shop while waiting for customers doing a tasting this week, learns about the business.

“I’ve done the Chateau tour five times,” Chacon said. “Every time, I learn something new for the next customer.”
