About Us

Meet the owners Tina and Joe Kennedy


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!

Wine Flights


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

Barrels celebrated its first year anniversary on June 20, 2019!


Check out the other places in the Boyd Building... Island Treats, Clark & Clark, San Cafe and just opened The Home Collaborative, and soon to be opened La Fete are just a few of our great neighbors. Celebrate business on Mercer Island!
