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.

As a child a grew up in the shadow of Riblets about a mile away. I use to play baseball with my fellow students at Hutton Settlement, a home for children who parents are discovering how to be themselves before raising children. I was adventurist, my mother husband was one of those rat bastards that came back from WWI with... More

We visited here as part of a convention I was attending. The grounds are immaculate with lots of flowers and landscaping. It's on top of a hill and gives you a great view of the town. There's a gift shop there that's pretty nice as well. There are lots of wineries in Spokane, so if you're on a wine tour... More

Good wines at a good value. The summer music series is a real winner. Great location. Watch for the half-off case sale in November.
