Best Washington Tasting Rooms - Seattle Metropolitan Magazine

"On a hill surrounded by a sea of  vines and rolling wheat fields sits this grand tasting room and its adjacent production facilities, which make some of the best wines in the state. For $15, you can sample all the wines in the portfolio while surrounded by Dale Chihuly's glass sculptures (the artist is friendly with owner Allen Shoup and created works especially for the winery). Double the price gets you a cheese plate and a tour of the production facility downstairs, including the barrel room where the sound system plays classical music for the wines. A little New Agey? Perhaps. Though the owners deny it, rumor has it some days the wine gets juiced on heavy metal, too. On Fridays, Long Shadows opens the patio and serves $10 pours with live music from 6 to 9pm - perhaps the best cheap date in town."
