Welcome to Woodinville
Woodinville is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 10,938 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Seattle metropolitan area. There is also a much larger population with Woodinville mailing addresses in adjacent unincorporated areas of King (Cottage Lake) and Snohomish (Maltby) counties. Woodinville has waterfront parks on the Sammamish River, sweeping winery and brewery grounds, and densely wooded residential areas. Woodinville is an affluent city, with the 34th highest average per-capita income in the state.
It contains two historic and scenic rail lines. Officially referred to as the Woodinville Subdivision, they were used by the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train, whose destination was the Columbia Winery, until July 31, 2007, and they are still used for some freight service. There has been a controversial push by some King County officials to remove both lines and replace them with bicycle trails. However, in the wake of the defeat of the Roads and Transit measure on the November 2007 ballot and growing concern about global warming and ever-worsening traffic congestion, recent months have a seen a surge of interest in saving the lines and using them for a commuter rail service that would link Woodinville with Bellevue and other major destinations on the rapidly growing Eastside.
The median income for a household in the city in 2000 was $68,114, and the median income for a family was $81,251. Males had a median income of $53,214 versus $35,404 for females.

Based on per capita income, one of the more reliable measures of affluence, Woodinville ranked 34th of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked by the 2000 Census.

Woodinville’s economy is a mix of light industrial, retail, and tourism. Woodinville is increasingly known for its local wineries, which showcase wines from grapes grown in Eastern Washington including Chateau Ste. Michelle (well known for their popular summer concert series), Columbia Winery and dozens of other smaller ones. The Woodinville Tourist District is also home to the Redhook Ale Brewery and several fine restaurants including The Herbfarm “destination” restaurant. The downtown area includes Molbak’s Garden and Home, a nationally acclaimed garden center.
Until July 2007, the north end of the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train‘s route was at the Columbia Winery. Talks are currently underway to restore service, but running from Woodinville north to Snohomish, instead of south to Renton.
