Sarah and Devin leave Novelty Hill – Januik Winery after their wedding!

Novelty Hill Januik is by far the most modern looking winery in the Woodinville area. The stylishly modern building isn’t what most people think of when they think wine country.  However, being surrounded by lush greenery and one spectacular tree that appears to be a few hundred years old, it fits in perfectly.

Novelty Hill Januik is unique. The two wineries have been sharing a production facility and tasting room since 2002 and opened their beautiful venue in 2007.

Under the direction of Mike Januik, the two wineries (Januik and Novelty Hill) share this amazing facitility that has quickly become a popular hang out for locals and an even more popular wedding venue!

Locals have a closely guarded secret around here… The summer and early fall is absolutely stunning! Sure, we want you to think that it rains all the time… but it doesn’t.

This venue has a stunning outdoor space as well as their beautiful tasting room with floor to ceiling windows. If you pop in for a tasting you will quickly feel the need to buy a bottle of their AMAZING wine and possibly one of their famous brick oven flat bread pizzas.  (Pizzas are available Friday – Sunday 12 -4pm)

Tastings are available daily from 11am to 5pm.  If you have a party larger than 12 please call ahead for a reservation.

Regardless of the time of year Januik hosts Wine’d Down Wednesdays! A very popular event featuring live music, wine specials, and a ridiculously tasty menu that puts many popular restaurants to shame!

If you happen to drop by for one of the summer Wine’d Down Wednesdays the outdoor space will be packed with very happy visitors!

Weather permitting, grab a table on their outdoor patio and play a game of corn hole or bocce ball! There is nothing that says “Woodinville Summer” like a bottle of wine in the sun on the Novelty Hill Januik patio.

This rosé happens to be one of my summer favorites!

This venue also plays host to many weddings every year. Januik is one of the featured wedding venues in the wildly popular wedding show Weddings in Woodinville. Check their website for tickets, the show is always the last Sunday in January.

For those looking for a more modern venue, it doesn’t get much better than this! With the ability to host from 12 to 150 guests depending on your room choice, this winery fits so many styles.

Januik also has their own culinary team! Head Chef Seth Fernald leads this extraordinary team to create some of the tastiest plates anyone would love to serve at their wedding!

It is so hard for me to pick a favorite wine here… I have yet to try one I didn’t like! So try a tasting flight recommended by their knowledgable staff and you are sure to find something you love!

I hope you all enjoy this amazing venue!
