Rob GriffinRob Griffin holds the honor of being Washington State’s most enduring winemaker; making wine on a continuous basis in Washington longer than any other winemaker in the state. His Barnard Griffin Winery of Richland, Wash., is celebrating its 33rd year in operation.

When asked what makes him the most proud regarding his wines over the last 30+ years, Rob cited these achievements: “I suppose that number one for me is our focus on creating a master quality wine throughout our entire line. From Fume Blanc to Cabernet, each wine is varietally accurate.

This is difficult to achieve and requires constant vigilance. Secondly, we work extraordinarily hard to maintain Vintage-to-Vintage consistency, even though Mother Nature likes to throw us a curve ball from time to time.

The Barnard Griffin Winery, Tasting Room, “The Kitchen at Barnard Griffin” restaurant, as well as the artisan glass db Studio, are all located at 878 Tulip Lane in Richland, Washington.
