About

Hi there.  Thanks for visiting!

My name is Lisa.  Barrique Barrel is the culmination of a some hard work and a lot of dreaming.  It is a small wine & beer bottle shop in the St. Johns neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.

I never went to sommelier or viticulture school – my background is working in restaurants and bakeries.  Everything I know, I learned from tasting wine and watching others taste wine.  I learned quickly that there are no wrong or stupid answers and that this type of learning is fun and eventful.  I’d like to further that knowledge with my customers.  Let’s all learn from each other!

Barrique Barrel focuses on wines under $20/bottle with a heavy Pacific Northwest selection.  There’s a lot of brilliant wine in the world though, so don’t be surprised to find bottles from Chile, Spain, Australia or even Lebanon!  We also carry a selection of craft beers from Oregon and around the world.

We have a constantly rotating selection based on seasonality.  Check the website, call or visit us to see what’s new.
