Owner description: 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!

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

We're touring some of Oregon's wineries and Marchesi was perfect. Lovely heated outside comfortable seating areas. Very reasonable price for tasting, and some excellent wine to savor. We were lucky with the fall weather which made for a great day out

Just visited here as part of a special birthday celebration with a group of friends. The chalkboard out front said, "Start Inside", so two of us ventured forward while some of our party were still walking in. We walked past full tables and chairs of many lively groups into a small shop with a bar. It was so crowded, with... More

Not only is this region breathtaking, the wine tasting was lovely, as was the staff. I thoroughly enjoy my short visit. I left with a beautiful bottle of wine (and a little buzz!)

We really enjoyed visiting the winery. The people were very helpful. There is a great old meat slicer there for great itallian sausage. We shared a bottle of excellent wine and some snacks. Highly recommended.

We were working our way through the fruit loop and were about done with wine for the day (this was about 6 hours into our fruit loop tour). We decided to stop at one more place, and ended up choosing Marchesi Vineyards off the map - are we ever glad we did! The service here was unparalleled and setting was... More

While taking the "Fruit Loop," we had our fill of fruity--it was time for rich, Italian-style red wines so we went to Marchesi Vineyards. We went up to the bar and ordered our tastings, and we were told to take a table anywhere and they would come take care of us. So, we found a table that was actually in... More

We visited Marchesi Vineyards today, with 4 adults and a toddler. We enjoyed a delicious tasting of wines, our favorites being the Barbera and a Primativo, and purchased those. The Wine club is reasonable with two, six bottle offerings annually. Small, local, and lovely. Great antipasti tray and yummy breadsticks. We will be back!

We were traveling from Portland to the Walla Walla area and looking for a winery to stop at along the way. What a great find! We were greeted by Drew who immediately told us the background of the winery. Soon the winery owner wine maker Franco came in and chatted for a bit. Very nice and down to earth guy.... More
