Malaga Springs Winery is a hidden gem, located in Malaga up against the cliffs. This winery is a labor of love, where every last detail has been looked after.

Warm Springs Inn

Warm Springs Inn is nestled just east of Sunnyslope. Although they don’t generally serve food with their wine tastings, Julie and Ludger Szmania are happy to prepare appetizers if you call 48 hours in advance. Make a plan to bring your friends and enjoy some simple yet delicious food made by the owners, who owned a neighborhood bistro in Seattle for more than two decades. Warm Springs’ tasting room is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., but feel free to call in advance to see if the owners are around on other days for a private visit.
