Seattle Top 5 Patio: The New Branded at Almquist Family Vintners is Stunning (Easily Amongst Seattle's Most Beautiful)

Seattle weather is at it's most beautiful right now... The perfect time to visit the outdoor Wine Garden at the new Branded at Almquist Family Vintners. This location is absolutely in my Top 5 most beautiful for wine on the patio, and it's open for business. One of Seattle's hottest up-and-coming chefs, Brandt Bishop, has created a lovely menu for bites, including Smoked Cod Crostini with Cilantro Salsa Verde and Pickled Onion, Fresh Columbia City Focaccia with Bone Marrow Butter, and Kusshi Oysters on the Half Shell. The full bar downstairs, including the Greenhouse, as well as the upstairs wine bar will officially open to the public in June with an expanded menu.

The Branded Wine Garden is Open!

 The outdoor Wine Garden at Branded sits on a beautiful property overlooking the Lake Washington Ship Canal.
