Barrister Winery is located in downtown Spokane in a beautiful brick building built in 1906. Started by two attorneys in 2001, this winery is a must visit. With bold expressive Washington grapes and some careful aging, the wines prove to be some of the best in Washington. The building boasts 18' ceilings with 100 year old brick, original wood beams, and the original wood floor. The basement is full of over 450 barrels of aging Barrister red wine. In the summer the courtyard fills up with flowers and has a beautiful barrel wall, making this the perfect place for your next event. Open 12-5 daily for tastings.

We found ourselves with a Sunday afternoon to kill in Spokane. I found this winery listed here on Tripadvisor and decided to visit. Things were pretty quiet with 2 small groups served by one friendly and helpful pourer. During the course of our wine flight we received some good tips from other patrons. One great tip was from the pourer... More

Jon, It's fun to get world travelers that take the time to visit our little winery in Spokane. So happy to read your personal review of our Malbec, that was one of our best wines we produced this year. Thank you for encouraging people to try us out. Much appreciated, and cheers. - Barrister More

Very nice atmosphere. Great place for a party, wedding, or just a family gathering (adult members, of course). Really good wines. Not partial to the white (but that's just me). Then we learned that they only produce the one so that they can really focus on the awesome reds they have.

Had a great time, staff was friendly and it was nice to sit outside and have a glass of wine. They do weddings, parties, and special events.

This winery started by two lawyers consistently produces excellent red wines that delight my palate. I've been there a number of times. Once we were able to see the barrels in the basement. Another time I was able to taste syrah grapes before they were crushed into wine!

My husband and I took a tour with the Barrister Winery staff of their winery in addition to enjoying a wine tasting. The setting was surprising (we weren't sure we were in the right alley), but it was lovely! Plus, the wine was excellent. We look forward to going back.

Barrister winery put on an amazing "First Friday" event (first Friday of the new year). My sister and i purchased their signature white wine (very reasonable priced for two Canadians!), dined to a gourmet buffet with the best corn we've ever tasted, and it didn't stop there... the music and ambiance of the beautiful brick building on a snowy evening...

Unique location and interesting building. The wines were good. They display local art that is for sale. They even have room for dancing!

This little winery within an old brick warehouse is hidden in an alley just past downtown Spokane near the railway. It has a lovely, flower-decked patio where you can enjoy wine or book a party. The folks were incredibly friendly, even letting me come in and taste an hour before opening. Nice wines, knowledgable staff, great ambiance. Worth the stop!

Within this comfortable environment, you will find excellent red wines at agreeable prices. You might want to check their website for the evenings when they... More
