This winery is one of three on the same lane, and its the best for our money. Our "pourer" was knowledgeable and helpful like few others, the tasting room is attractive, and everyone was very unpretentious. It was a pleasure to talk with the folks and see their operation. They don't have a tasting room in Woodinville (the "Eastside"), and... More

Nice wine bar, did a tasting of the available wines and purchased a couple of bottles, nice wine, lovely decor, the beautiful glass bar was worth the visit alone. Farmers market on the back deck, very friendly bartender, knowledgeable about wine and about the product there. Was a little disappointed that we could not have a tour of the winery... More

We visited the Tri-Cities recently to try some wine tasting. Our stop at Barnard Griffin was definitely the best experience. We were helped by a charming and knowledgeable woman who made us feel extremely welcome. We tasted several wines and found them to be exceptional. We bought several bottles which are delicious. There is also a bistro which stays open... More

I was able to celebrate my birthday recently at the bistro with some great wine and wonderful food. This recent addition to the winery (the bistro) puts a whole new spin on winery touring. I have visited this winery in the past in their tasting room that has also been remodeled. You do not feel crowded with the counter being... More

In a row of three wineries if you your interested in just wine, pick this one. Barnard Griffin has an amazing selection of quality wines at fair prices. They have recently opened up a bistro and the atmosphere is very modern and artsy. I have not really had much of their food, but I have tasted their great little flat... More

BG Winery has just undergone a remodel and it is fantastic. They continue to expand their menu and of course their wine is wonderful.

We are so lucky to have so many nice wineries in the Tri-Cities, and this is one of our favorites. Rob Griffin and his family have made this into a wonderful destination for award winning, reasonably priced wines, delicious small plates in its bistro, and a fun place to meet your friends after work.There's entertainment on weekends, too, so dust...

We tried Tagaris, J Bookwalter, and Barnard Griffin. We thought Griffin offered the best wines of the three.

Great place for wine tasting, and having appetizers. I hear there is live music a time or two a week also. I like their wine better than the neighboring wineries for sure! It was tasting their wine in a restaurant that got us wanting to go the winery and we are glad we did! We will come back here again... More
