Barrels... Experience Wine! Opening hours have changed: Tues-Sat - 2pm Sun - 1 pm
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 $6.00 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
Pleased to announce that Enzo from Poggio La Noce will be at Barrels from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm this Friday, October 12. What a great way to spend happy hour, tasting some Tuscan Treasures without going to Tuscany! Check out the Poggio La Noce Harvest Video from a few years back, courtesy of James Suckling.

Occasionally we get a visit from terrific wineries and winemakers who come by to taste their wines with us. There were a number of Desperate Housewives, Portlandians, and those searching for Sex in the City (fans) who would have liked to have been tasting with "pursued by bear." Thanks Kyle!
We have over 1000 bottles from approximately 200 wineries, and we are still expanding the bottle and glass pour list. We have nearly 40 glass pours available every day, and hundreds of bottles that you can buy to take home or pop the cork here and enjoy it with one of our small plates. Using our Coravins, we are able to taste certain bottles without oxidizing the wine. Our glass pours are listed below. We start with our in house white wines.
