Tina grew up on Mercer Island, graduated from Mercer Island High School, and then from WSU in 1982. She met Joe, another Coug, in their senior year. Two years later in 1983, they tied the knot. They explored the wineries of Washington, Oregon, and California during the mid 1980s when there were fewer than fifty wineries in Washington, less in Oregon, and California was well ahead of both. They worked part-time at seven Washington wineries from 1985 - 1993. In 1988, they decided they would open a wine bar. In 2018, they did it. Thirty seven years of exploring wines from all over the world has led to the opening of "barrels...experience wine!" Come on in and pop a cork!
Daily wine flights that range from $10.00 to $20.00. Experience similar wines from different regions of the world or experience different wines from the same region. The flights vary by the week and season! You won't have to go to the Barossa Valley, Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Rioja, Tuscany, or Walla Walla. Save on plane tickets and hotels. Stop by barrels... experience wine! We have great local favorites and classics from around the world.
Being part of a great community like Mercer Island means commitment to programs that make a difference in the community. We believe that MIYFS makes a huge difference in islander lives.

Our artist for the months of January and February is Jen Chambers. Her first show at Barrels was very successful. Her new pieces are colorful and calming, and could easily find a place somewhere in your home. Drop by to see her work or find out more by coming into Barrels for the artist reception (date to be determined) or check out her website at jenchambersart.com.
Tuesday - Saturday all day long with our 6 wines for $6 each. Great deals on wine, beer, and small bites.
Usually every Friday we have a special tasting from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. Often times winemakers from local wineries will stop by to pour their wines. Sometimes it's a winery representative. Either way, if you show up it's a great way to learn about their wines from the person who made them. Then, sometimes, a wine maker or two will stop by to say hi, drop off a bottle, or just enjoy a glass of wine. Pictured above are Chris Figgins, Chris Gorman, and Tina. Both just happened to stop by Barrels at the same time.
We have the largest wine list of any restaurant, bar or tavern on the island. We have over 40 glass pours available every day, and hundreds of bottles that you can buy to take home or pop the cork here. Using our Coravins, we are able to taste certain bottles without oxidizing the wine. Our glass pours are listed below.
