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
