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!

“Best Hood River Winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

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.

“Favoloso!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

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 Washington. This is truly Italian. Not only are you emmer send in great lovingly developed wines but can share in sausage, cheese and bread. This is a spot to savory your day. Living in Hood River we always share by taking our out of town guests. If you live in Portland or somewhere near you must join their Wine Club (Club Paesano) to not only enjoy the varieties but have access to their semi annual dinners for a superb dinner designed to accent their wines.

“Love the wine and the wine club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

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!

“One of the best in the Gorge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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.

“Best winery in Hood River!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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 owners and staff of this beautiful, intimate winery are so warm, you feel like part of the family. There is ample seating and parking, but the best part is the delicious wine. We joined the club right away and booked the lunch. We had box lunches delivered for our group of 24, and it which was a great success!
