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!

Barrister Winery is an urban winery, located in and old brick building near a railway. By, "old" I mean a building steeped in character and history, brick and wood with features from a bygone era. 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

I recently had an amazing experience at Barrister Winery. Greg Lipsker gave me a personal tour of the facility and made me feel right at home. I also enjoyed tastings of three Barrister reds--their Cab Franc Rough Justice (blend), and Syrah. All were terrific. The atmosphere is a superb blend of arts, history, and fine wine.

I had an appointment to meet Greg Lipsker late of afternoon and he gave me a private tour of the Winery. Plus we enjoyed tastings right out of the barrel in the basement. Greg was a very informative about the business and how and why they made their wines. The winery sells their wines to a number of local restaurants,... More

It had been several years since I had been to this winery. Incredible reds......Cab franc, Sangiovese, and Syrah my favorites. I only wished I lived in Spokane, but definitely will stock up each time I visit. This is the best winery in the area.

This is hands down the best winery I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Their award winning wine is to die for and once you attend one of their "first Fridays" you will be addicted. My Advice -- Join the wine club!!!
