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! « less

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

This winery has it all. Great wines, nice grounds, friendly family run, and nice meat and cheese plates. Marchesi is by far the best wines and tasting room in the Hood River Valley.

If you are visiting Hood River this is a must! Having been to Napa Valley experiencing large to small wineries, I fell in love with a true gem. The wine is top notch, but it is accompanied by a gracious staff, comfortable setting of indoor as well as outdoor tables adjacent to the vineyard looking out to the hills of... More

Visited Marchesi Vineyards on our visit to Hood River. Loved the wine and joined the club. We've been members more than 2 years now and haven't had a disappointment. Good customer service and good Italian roots. Love it!

Love this vineyard. The winemaker follows his roots from Italy to Hood River to make some of the finest wine in town. Perfect for a warm sunny day when you can sit outside and enjoy the weather/wine. A fee if you are doing tasting, worth every penny.

My husband and I went to Hood River a couple of months ago to search for a place to host a lunch for our car club. I felt like we were in the Three Bears, with one being too big and pricey, one too far on a white road for the finicky drivers, but this winery was just right! The... More

The wine is delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and the scenery is beautiful. I really enjoy wine tasting here. It's great with a group of friends. The food was perfectly matched with the wine. The employee was very nice and knowledgeable about the wine. She provided interesting information about the wine but also gave us space to visit with... More

After my first visit to Marchesi Vineyards, I joined their wine club so that I could regularly enjoy their excellent Italian varietals. Their tasting room is small and intimate and wine tasting is regularly accompanied by sliced Italian sausage, Italian cheese and good bread - over-all a first-rate experience. I own my own vineyard, have been making wine for over... More

We had stopped into several wineries along the "fruit loop" route. Some we felt were too expensive for their tastings and some quite frankly did not seem very friendly. On the basis of the good TA reviews I suggested we drive here. I had a glass of Reisling but my husband had the $6 flight. We also ordered the appetizer... More
