Green Bluff is beautiful and worth the visit to begin with, especially in the summer and fall when fruit is abundant in the area. That said, there are plenty of fun shops that make this area worth the visit all year long. This winery makes a fun adult stop. The wine is good, I thought the prices were reasonable. Arbor Crest probably has a better view/location, but the view is pretty nice at Townshend too and I think the wine is better. But why not make a day and visit both? They are relatively close together. Staff was very friendly and helpful in choosing wines for tastings. They have a ton of very sweet dessert wines, but a large selection of red and white wines too.

We have been most impressed with Townshend Cellars. The owners are charming and well versed in winemaking. The view from the modern and expansive estate are well worth planning around a sunset. We have visited Townshend in the fall, winter, and now spring with favorable results. The building is new, modern, clean, and easily accessible. The restrooms are clean and accessible. Parking is abundant and adjacent to the winery. When you go, stop and ask for Michael, one of the owners for a brief history of Townshend, You will be impressed!

Townshend Cellar is a little out of the way from the downtown Cork District, but it is well worth the drive. The setting and views are spectacular, and while in the area, be sure to check out all of the Greenbluff farms, fruit stands, U-pick fruit orchards, farmers markets, and other great spots to visit. You can truly make a day trip out of visiting the Greenbluff area. The staff at Townshend are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the wines are excellent and fairly priced. Some people don't realize that winemaker Don Townshend ages his wines in the bottle, particularly his reds, for 2 to 5 years before release. So, when you buy a quality Townshend wine, you are buying a nicely cellared bottle of wine that is mature enough to be enjoyed immediately, or, you can buy and hold for even longer. Most wines are less than $25, even for aged reds (some can go higher), and most whites are under $15. If you are in the Spokane area either wine tasting or are simply looking for a fun day trip that avoids the rat race, be sure to hit Townshend Cellar and the other Greenbluff area farms and attractions. A little nature will do ya good. :)

The individual working treated us like second class citizens and chose to forget us then serve us our tasting. In addition, wine tasted medicinal and was by far one of the worst experiences I’ve had. We were polite and respectful to the worker who was rude and distant to us. There’s much better wineries then this around the area don’t waste your time.

Its always a hit on a weekend just to drive up and enjoy a bottle with the wife on a gray winter afternoon. Plus you can always count on a few other tastings. Really enjoy this place and glad they didn't move downtown. Okay and its only a couple of miles from the house
