Caterina's approach to wine is more New World-- with bright, vibrant fruit, so its wines are approachable when they're younger. This fruit-forward style also means bottles are reasonably priced, most under $20, without sacrificing quality. In fact, Caterina's 2008 Voignier was selected by Wine Enthusiast Magazine as a Top 100 Best Buy Wines and both the Voignier and its 2001 Willard Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon earned scores over 90 points.

Dry Fly is consistently recognized for its exceptional quality. Its whiskey recently won a Triple Gold Medal from the Micro Liquor Spirit Awards. Dry Fly's Vodka captured a Double Gold Medal and Best in Show award from the San Francisco International Wine and Spirits competition.
EMVY Cellars was bred from a fledgling hobby into a small business, inspired by our love of wine. We have always believed that working on a smaller boutique scale produces a better wine. We bottle age our wine 2-3 years longer than most other wineries until we believe the wine is peaking and ready to drink. EMVY takes great care to use quality fruits and 100% high quality French barrels. We source grapes from the outstanding Seven Hills and Pepperbridge vineyards in Walla Walla, plus one of the hottest vineyards in Washington, Tapteil in Red Mountain. All of our wine is now produced in our new downtown winery in the 100 year old remodeled and historically registered Forrester Hall. Our flagship wine Devotion is regularly regarded as one of the best wines produced in Spokane. Come taste for yourself. Our tasting room is the Marketplace & Wine Bar located on 2nd and Brown inside the Spokane Public Market.

Beer is not manufactured at Twelve Strings. It's handcrafted. You won't find automated manufacturing lines in Spokane Valley's only brewery; instead you'll discover a seven-barrel steam heated brewery system that was built entirely from scratch. Beers are brewed in the Northwest style and span from light ales, such as the G String Blonde to the Drop D Stout that's so dark and hefty that it's awesome paired with vanilla ice cream.

Mining and bordello-inspired monikers such as the 'Dirty Blonde', 'Jackleg Stout', 'Redlight Irish Red Ale' and 'Idaho Select Lager', pay homage to Wallace's notorious past.
