In August, Tyler Alden was named wine director and restaurant outlets manager for Woodinville’s Willows Lodge and its signature restaurant, Barking Frog. 

“We are thrilled to have Tyler join us, and to innovate and lead our extensive wine program here at Willows Lodge in beautiful Woodinville Wine Country,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, managing director at Willow Lodge. “From everyday pairings in Barking Frog and the Fireside Lounge, to special events, like our winemaker and brewer dinners, Tyler’s knowledge and experience will support and further enhance our food and beverage program here at Willows Lodge as one of the very best in the region.”

Alden is an advanced sommelier — having passed the three-day Advanced Sommelier exam in Aug. 2013 — with expertise in craft brew pairings.
