This historic site shares its space with the Broadview Dairy Museum, a unique collection of exhibits on milk production that fascinates young and old alike. Caterina Winery occupies the lower level of the building, with the entrance on the south side facing Cavanaugh's Inn at the Park.
A visit to Caterina Winery
The tasting room, with an Italian motif, is a charming space for enjoying the wines. A small gift area offers many unusual items.
The winery is within walking distance of Riverfront Park (just up Washington Street across the Spokane River) and the adjacent Cavanaugh's Hotel is a superb headquarters for out-of-town wine lovers exploring Spokane.
Chardonnay and reserve chardonnay each offer qualities of ripe tropical fruit and barrel fermentation, with the reserve taking on more of the buttery, toasty quality. A seafood-friendly sauvignon blanc has been a popular wine, although the winery is debating its future as part of the continuing production.
Merlot from several vineyard sources produces a rich and full-bodied wine that has received acclaim from both consumers and wine critics. Caterina cabernet sauvignon offers toasty, herbaceous notes and a lean palate. Mike Scott is looking forward to ongoing success with fruit from the Wahluke Slope. Opened in 1993, Caterina produces about 6,000 cases of wine each year. Chuck Hill
