Here you can enjoy the spectacular view so reminiscent of the old country— undulating hills and fragrant roses under a splendid sky. Franco Marchesi, will be at hand to welcome you.

The decor is noticeably Italian, with a mural from Piedmonte. Black-and-white photos depict historic wine-making scenes from long ago. The shelves are filled with books about wines and wine making.

Hood River Vineyards & Tasting Room

This is the oldest winery in the Gorge, owned by Anne and Bernard Lerch. Hosting an excellent selection of Red Wines and Ports made from local fruits.
Try the MarionBerry!

Over the years HRV has developed a broad selection of wines, emphasizing rich, flavorful, full-bodied reds, and delicious sweet ports and sherry. This is one of our favorite smaller wineries and we think the value is well worth the stop.

Mt. Hood Winery
Enjoy the fruits of the finest growing region in the Pacific Northwest. It's the "sweet spot" between the cool, wet Willamette Valley and the hot, dry Eastern Oregon climate.
The Pinot Noir is outstanding here and this winery will present more top quality wines as their production grows.

Nestled among the orchards of the Hood River Valley, this newly opened tasting room mirrors the style of the area's roadside fruit markets. The young winery produces several varietals, chardonnay and pinot noir, with a Port bottling promised by winter.

The Pines
The long awaited tasting room from the Pines is now in downtown Hood River. Open Thurs.-Sunday, The Pines features some of the best Reds known to wine tasters! They offer spicy, full-bodied wines with a strong balance between fruit and alcohol.

The Pines 1852 is a family-owned and operated winery and vineyard.
The Pines Vineyard's Old Vine Zinfandel was first planted by an Italian stone mason in the late 1800s. Louis Comini made his home in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, bringing with him grape vines from his homeland in Genoa, Italy. These original plants are still producing today by winemaker Peter Rossback and owner Lonni Wright.

The century Old Vine Zinfandel make The Pines one of the oldest vineyards in the Northwest.
