Richland winery opens second satellite tasting room
About a year after opening its first satellite tasting room in Vancouver, Washington, Barnard Griffin has opened a second one in Woodinville.
The grand opening for the 1,405-square-foot tasting room at 17401 133rd Ave., Suite 1008, was Dec. 16.
“These satellite tasting rooms expose customers to our top tier wines that are also available in Richland but were not readily available on the west side,” said Deborah Barnard, co-owner of the winery.
She also noted that the tasting rooms bring visitors to Richland for wine club events so customers can explore and enjoy other Tri-City activities and stay in area hotels.
The Woodinville tasting room features a bar front, chandeliers and fused-glass installations designed and produced by Barnard, as well as materials beginning their second life such as patio furniture fashioned from single-use plastics.
It’s located in Kirkland-based MainStreet Property Group’s wine walk row section of its mixed-use development called The Schoolhouse District, which completed its initial phase of completion in the fall 2021.
Barnard Griffin celebrates its 40th year in business this year.
