Situated on a cliff high above the Spokane Valley the Arbor Crest Winery this winery offers a unique view off the valley at the site of the Riblet Mansion. Although any time is a good time for wine tasting, the absolute best time to visit is in the summer when they offer outdoor concerts. Bring a picnic dinner and buy... More

I don't think of Spokane as a wine producer but Arbor Crest has produced some fine results. We ventured to their hilltop winery set a short distance outside Spokane. We got there a little early for tasting and leisurely strolled the grounds with its structures (some historical), gardens, and panoramic view of the area and downtown Spokane in the distance....

The Cliff house over looks Spokane Valley with expansive views of the area. In the summer there are concerts that can be enjoyed with friends, a bottle of wine and food. A must if your are in the area if a summer concert is on.

I worked in the winery industry for about 15 years. I've spent time bottling, sorting grapes, shipping and receiving, greeting guests, and most importantly being the hostess in the tasting room. Customer service makes or breaks the experience. Ours is broken. It was difficult to get the hostess’s attention, then to get any information from her. I asked about the... More

They have events almost every week in the warmer weather. I have been here for many weddings, special events and even the symphony. The wine tasting room is quite nice and the ground to explore. A must see for visitors.

Going to definitely have to think twice about visiting after our last visit. May even cancel our wine club membership. My wife and I decided to take a business client that had stayed with us over the weekend to this winery for a tasting experience. We arrived at around 20 minutes to 5 and were immediately informed by the two... More

... for the management of Arbor Crest. We have visited Arbor Crest for the past 15 years. What was once a 5-star location for us has descended into the 2 star range. When we first visited Arbor crest, we were enchanted with the mansion literally on the edge of a cliff, the lovely grounds with beautiful gardens, and even the... More

We love Arbor Crest Thursday evenings in summer free concert series. What a great location, good music and a cheap date night. Bring your picnic and money to purchase a glass or bottle of the wine. It has a great view, but just know you must be over 21 - not just to drink, but because of the sheer cliff... More

A bit of a drive but worth it for the peaceful setting and views from the winery. A local told me I "had" to visit this, and I'm so glad I did. Just beautiful. Bring a camera or your smartphone, for there are many lovely sights from high above Spokane Valley.
