We didn't really enjoy our experience here. The lady pouring the tastings didn't seemed interested in us. She spent her time talking to the other employees and acted like we were an inconvenience. Didn't explain anything about the wine, just poured and walked away. We...More

Barnard Griffin produces some interesting and complex wines. My wife and I favor red wines and the Columbia Valley produces some of the best!

It was pretty quiet when we got to Bernard Griffin because it was a rainy Sunday afternoon. The look of the tasting room was fairly modern with sample works from the neighboring glassmaker all around. We really enjoyed Molly's expertise and friendliness. We had fun...More

Excellent wine venue. One of the oldest and best wineries in the Northwest. Food offerings were superb. We had bread and cheese and the morsels served were unique and matched reserve Chardonnay well.

We stopped by to do a wine tasting. Unfortunately the kitchen was closed so we were unable to get any appetizers. However the wine was great and the knowledge of the staff was excellent. We will definitely be going back.
