Meet Josh Wojcik owner of Barrels

Meet the owner…
Josh Wojcik

Wait a minute… what happened to Joe and Tina?

Joe and Tina founded Barrels in 2018 and have decided to finally, fully retire. You will still be able to see them, just on the other side of the bar.

Josh purchased the business in December of 2023, bringing a passion for wine. Josh was so impressed with Barrels, that he gave up his career in tech to pursue his dream of being in the wine industry. Josh’s three favorite things are music, art, and wine. Barrels is the perfect convergence of all three.

Joe and Tina truly built an amazing business and Josh hopes to make it even better.

Josh grew up in Southern Idaho and moved to the Seattle area in 2002. He attended both University of Idaho and Colorado State. He has travelled extensively to New Zealand, Germany, and along the Mediterranean. His favorite varietal is Mourvèdre with Cabernet Sauvignon a close second.

Josh’s wine focus is both New Word and Old World, Washington wines, small production, women and minority led, and wines of unique distinction.

Please come in and welcome Josh to the neighborhood!

July/August Featured Artist: Kimberly Balla

My paintings are like finger prints, each having their own soul or essence so unique it may only be created by nature itself.

I use a new approach to the old medium of oil paint; I mix new materials from the modern era, with the timeless oils of the past. I’m entrapped by my obsession with the magic-like chemical approach which captures a natural process freezing it in time. I am bound to the exploration of my discovered process, as if it has an energy which is so captivating that I feel I need endless time to understand it.  Like the puppet master to the show, I am entranced by a technique I will never completely harness, only have a hand in its direction.
