Part of Washington's wine country just northeast of Seattle, Woodinville is one of the most charming communities in the Evergreen State. Known for its lush waterfront scenery and wooded residential areas, it makes sense that Woodinville apartments for rent have become such a hot commodity in the Seattle metropolitan area. With its delicious wine, high quality of life and excellent schools, it makes sense that the city has seen a recent growth in population. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Woodinville's estimated 2011 population was more than 11,000 people.
The city is named after the Woodins, the first family to settle into the banks of the Sammamish River around the city limits. Although the main employers during that time were lumbering and logging, Woodinville did not fully develop until the railroad connected the area with Seattle in the late 1800s. During this time, the city became well-known for its dairy farms that shipped milk to Seattle and other cities along the West Coast. Today, the city is home to a thriving business community and highly successful wineries and breweries.
One of the city's largest employers and main attractions is the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery. Known for its award-winning and famous Riesling, the winery is Washington's oldest and most acclaimed. Located on 105 beautiful wooded acres in Woodinville, this chateau gives tours and tastings for novices and experts alike, and even hosts a popular summer concert series. Because of its reputation for quality wine, Chateau Ste. Michelle remains not only the top attraction in Woodinville, but one of the largest in the Puget Sound area.
