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!
As of August 6, 2021 we will require proof of vaccination to enter Barrels bar indoors or outdoors. Here is what we will accept as official proof.
1. Your vaccination card with an official CDC logo on it. (Photo Acceptable)
2. A certificate from your health care provider that shows vaccination dates. The one from Kaiser says: COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate for Work, School and Travel.
We appreciate your understanding of our new requirements and thank you for your continued support.
Joe & Tina

When we had to close to the public, we chose to offer virtual wine tastings from Barrels with the help of our friend Craig Katz. We have hosted Kyle MacLachlan (pictured above), Jules Taylor, Damon Huard, and Ken Wright just to name a few. We will continue these from time to time and let you know through Facebook and Instagram when they will happen.
To book a spot for one of the tastings call Barrels at
