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!
We are happy to have Craig Katz, Certified Sommelier, lead us through our first Virtual Wine Tastings. With over 30 years in the wine industry as an educator, marketer, and sales manager, Craig has a great deal of experience and now, for a first, as a Virtual Wine Tasting Host.
He has represented over 100 domestic and imported wine brands, most recently for Ste Michelle Wine Estates.
He has hosted hundreds of wine dinners and tasting events and has always focused on meeting people where they are in their wine journey.
We are excited for this partnership and also want to let you know that Craig is available to provide wine consulting services.
To book a spot for one of the tastings call Barrels at 206-268-0588 between 3:00PM and 6:00 PM or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Artist for the months of February and March is Mercer Island artist Louise Hankes. While earning her Bachelor of Fine Art, she studied under Merrill Shatzman, who is currently Professor of the Practice, Emeritus of Art and Visual Studies at Duke University.
Painting with a group of artists on Mercer Island gave birth to the existing series for which she is known. Entitled “Whirlism,” this expansive series is a blend of design and play, and numerous collectors in the U.S. and abroad have acquired her pieces for their collections.
Today, Louise has brought the Whirlism shapes to life as sculpture in public spaces locally and in La Conner, WA. Blomster is a 10 foot tall, orange metal sculpture that was planted in Mercer Island’s Gretta Hacket Sculpture Garden in the summer of 2019.
