Woodinville-based Mark Ryan Winery is opening its second tasting room (19501 144th Ave) in the winery-heavy town, and this one is dedicated to the company’s Board Track Racer Cellars sister project with its vintage motorcycle theme. The tasting room opens on Saturday, February 24 at 12 p.m. and will pour the Board Track Racer wines as well as rotating sips from Megan Anne Cellars and Mark Ryan Winery.
The tasting room’s gray walls and wood floors skew minimalist, with an actual Triumph motorcycle as the room’s centerpiece. There’s also a glass garage door that looks into a barrel storage area shared with neighboring wineries.
Founder Mark Ryan McNeilly launched his Board Track Racer wines in 2008; the label is named for the wild wood track motorcycle races of the 1920s. The labels are inspired by that era and include motorcycle graphics. Board Track Racer wines currently include The Vincent Red, a Columbia Valley blend; The Vincent White, a Chardonnay; The Chief, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec; and The Shift, with Syrah and Mourvedre.
After opening day, the tasting room will operate on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 6 p.m.
