Woodinville winery DeLille Cellars announced last week that it will open a new three-level tasting room and retail tower this fall at the former Redhook brewery in Woodinville’s Hollywood District.
The space will allow for seated tastings, tours, and a wine club rooftop deck with views of Sammamish Valley and Mount Rainier, according to a statement from the winery. The adjoining winemaking facility has operated since January.
DeLille Cellars CEO Tom Dugan said that after more than 20 years, “we’re eager to once again have all of our operations under one roof, with a world-class location that will allow us to fully showcase our wines and history as well as continue to educate and share our excitement about Washington wine.”
The new space is approximately 30,000 square feet. That includes 9,000 square feet of retail and event space; 5,000 square feet of office space; and 16,000 square feet of winemaking space. The retail section will include “curated experiences,” including events like wine tastings and blending seminars.
“Winemaking at DeLille is now fully transferred to the old Redhook space, which has been completely modified to support our specific needs and style,” said Jason Gorski, the winery’s director of winemaking and viticulture. “Everyone at DeLille is looking forward to the new tasting room and offices, not only so we can have the entire team in one place, but also so that we can share our wine and a wonderful experience with our guests, fans and wine club members.”
The building’s main level will include an outdoor patio and two private small-group tasting rooms that can be combined for larger groups. The second-floor club level will feature seating areas for wine club members and guests, in addition to space for corporate dinners and events. It also will include a private library that can accommodate up to 12 guests. Wine club members and their guests will receive exclusive access to the partially covered rooftop deck, which features a fireplace area, fire pits and roof-lined gas heaters.
The winery’s Carriage house tasting room, located in the Hollywood District, will remain open until construction of the new tasting room and retail tower is complete. The winery’s Maison DeLilli lounge will continue to operate indefinitely. The winery’s offices will relocate in April, and their current location, the winery’s original Chateau home, will operate under separate management as an event space.
The winery is planning a series of events this fall to commemorate the grand opening of the new facility. An online reservation system to reserve seats and book tastings will go live prior to the facility’s opening. More information is available on the winery’s website.
