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!

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!
