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. THERE'S MORE: Brand New tasting bar location in the Liberty building at 203 N. Washington across the street from the new Davenport Grand Hotel. Come visit us, open daily.

Barrister Winery is located in downtown Spokane, in an industrial area under/adjacent to a train track. It is located in a 100 + year old building with original wood flooring, wood ceiling with exposed beams, and romantic lighting. It is beautiful! A great place to hold a catered dinner for up to 150 guests. It is elegant enough for an... More

This is one of the must visit places in Spokane.. close enough to walk there from the Davenport Hotel(s) winery is at West Railroad Ave. If you drive too quickly past the alley way entrance, you'll miss it. Few parking spaces in the alley, but, can park on the street. Open 1200 - 5:00 at the winery location, now they... More

My wife and I stopped in for a tasting. Cab franc was delish. They had just crushed a bunch of grapes and Zach gave us a great tour of the process and the basement. Stop by, have a taste, take a tour, and grab a couple of bottles.

We're so excited to show people around the winery and explain the whole process, and yes, Zach gives a great tour and we are fortunate to have him.

We really enjoyed the great wine, beautiful patio, listening to good music, and picnicking at Barister's this past August. Our new favorite was the Syrah! Don't miss this summer treat in downtown Spokane during the summer!

I visited the tasting room with my parents in July. We were walking downtown and saw the wine tasting sign. I am so glad we went in.

Nice looking tasting room. If you are a red wine lover, this is the place for you. Great server knew her info. No water or crackers, bring your own. We enjoyed the 2013 Syrah Baccus and Rough Justice blend. Very good. We’ll stop by again.
