Arbor Crest Wine Cellars now has two locations: Our headquarters at the Cliff House Estate in Spokane Valley, and our new Tasting Room in downtown Spokane

Arbor Crest has returned to downtown Spokane, with a new Tasting Room in the heart of the Cork District!

Arbor Crest at the Davenport is located on the street-level (entrance on Sprague just east of Lincoln), just off the lobby inside The Historic Davenport Hotel, and across the hallway from the Peacock Room Lounge.

Arbor Crest Wine Cellars has been partnering with the hotel since its grand re-opening at the turn of the 21st Century. Matt Jensen, Corporate Director of Marketing for Davenport Hotels, said, “It just made sense to expand our partnerships with our local vendors and offer our guests more of our local products!”

Our new location gives Davenport guests an opportunity to learn more about the Arbor Crest family of wines, while also encouraging downtown visitors, both local and out-of-town, to experience a Spokane winery from the comfort of the hotel’s dazzling lobby.

Arbor Crest at the Davenport offers over a dozen wines by the glass, bottle or tasting (choice of any 5 wines, 1.5 oz pours of each). A menu of fruit, cheese and charcuterie plates are also available for order, with exceptional selections provided by our hotel partner!

Our Winery


Our Winery


Arbor Crest Wine Cellars is a second-generation, family-owned destination winery, headquartered on the historic Cliff House Estate. It was established in 1982 as the 29th winery in Washington state (now numbering over 900). Our winemaker, Kristina Mielke-van Löben Sels, is guided by the philosophy that the best wines begin in the vineyard. When selecting grapes, she focuses her attention on vineyard location and the quality of both the soil and the vines, working closely with our distinguished growers year-round to achieve the most concentrated and balanced fruit possible. After harvest, she maintains pure fruit quality through limited handling. Her results capture the power of the fruit and purity of the vineyards, producing wines with balance and style that display the natural integrity of their region.

Together with husband Jim van Löben Sels, Arbor Crest’s General Manager and Viticulturalist, Kristina celebrates over 15 years of handcrafting elegant, award-winning varietals for Arbor Crest. They are committed to providing you with an exceptional experience by crafting wines of great quality, using Washington’s best fruit, sourced from some of the most well established and respected vines in the state.

Paired with attentive customer service, live music, remarkable events and a breathtaking setting, a visit to the Cliff House Estate will leave you with a lush and lingering finish!
