Welcome to Spokane’s Cork District! The District is focused in the urban core of downtown Spokane and features fifteen award-winning wineries within walking distance of one other. Better yet, it’s in the midst of our shopping, dining and entertainment districts where you’ll find Broadway plays, James Beard recognized chefs, farm to fork culinary experiences, four star hotels and the roaring Spokane River Falls in beautiful Riverfront Park.
The District also features two additional wine tasting clusters. A short drive to the northeast you’ll find the Mount Spokane Cluster and just minutes east of downtown, the Spokane Valley Cluster, both featuring award winning wineries.
If you’re into more adventurous pursuits, The Cork District is also just minutes from incredible outdoor adventures from whitewater rafting to cycling, golf, hiking, skiing… well, you get the idea. We invite you to take a moment to explore The Cork District and build your perfect wine getaway!
The Cork District is located in Spokane, WA and is a partnership of wineries and local organizations to promote winetasting and tourism in Eastern Washington.
