Description: Franco Marchesi's passion for wine began in his hometown of Borgosesia...
Franco Marchesi's passion for wine began in his hometown of Borgosesia, Peimonte, Italy. As a child he always wondered what it would be like to be a winemaker like his grandfather Achille. After running his own import company specializing in Italian wines for over 20 years, Franco began planting his favorite Northern Italian grapes in Hood River, where the climate and soil are just like Northern Italy. Please come visit, and taste our wines. Salute!

Great wine tasting experience

Loved the wine. Also you can enjoy their patio (with heaters) and they will come around with the wines to taste.

We became wine club members after our first visit to Marchesi - such delicious wines, and what a lovely setting. We feel like we took a mini vacation every time we visit.

A local in Skamania had recommended this vineyard. Then a shop owner in Hood River also recommended it. We went wine tasting here and had 6 varieties, I loved every one of them. The prices are right on target, too. Must try.

I have been to dozens of wineries up and down the west coast and this is – according to my family and I – one of the best two (see rating for other best: Fratelli Perrata, Paso Robles, CA; it’s almost the same review). We have fairly mature palates when it comes to wine and this place never disappoints. The... More

We have a regular gals trip to Marchesi. We bring our picnic and taste the lovely wines. People and wine are terrific! Very welcoming and they bring your wine tastes to you at a table while you relax and enjoy! We like all the wines and have become club members!

Very cool vibe for tasting wine, and I agree that it is a lovely tasting ROOM, but unfortunately I didn't care for any of the wines that we tasted. I think that this is a great place to hang out with a group, bring some snacks, have a party etc. but not necessarily a good place if you are looking... More

Excellent vineyard and wines. Very relaxed atmosphere, and professional staff. The owner, Franco, has always been there during our visits, and is very friendly and hospitable. The wines are very good. The food is always good, and plentiful. We joined their wine club, and are very glad we did. The $6.00 dollar tasting fee is waived, if you join their... More

I researched a few locations online and I liked the Marchesi website the best; however, I was slightly disappointed. It was a bit crowded and the wines were just ok. The breadsticks were awesome lol

This Italian Winery is the best if you can't get to Italy. The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting and every wine taste flight is pure perfection. Marchesi also has a cheese, bread and sausage plate (for a fee) ( complimentary for wine club members) to compliment your tasting. If your wanting to sit outside they offer heater's and cozy blanket's... More

My wife and I started our anniversary weekend here and it was perfect! Lots of sitting areas, fantastic hors d'oeuvres (we had the antipasto), and very good wine. Great place to hang out for a half hour OR hours. We visited on a weekend day which was very busy, but late enough in the day that we were still able... More
