Wonderful wine and view!
Oct 2019
The wine is wonderful! After our tasting here we ordered a bottle for our anniversary dinner. We had a beautiful day to sit outside to sip wine and enjoy the view of the mountain.

Port flavored brown wine??
Oct 2017 • Couples
My wife and I visited this small winery and we were initially impressed with all the fruit port. But it pretty much stopped there. I tried a Chardonnay and a Riesling and both seemed fine. But the pinot noir was sour. It was the sourest wine I have ever tried! It reminded me of a Belgian style Flemish sour beer. The Barbera tasted like port wine. You could tell a port barrel was used for this wine. And oxidized!!! Brownest wine I have ever seen. Look, I liked the people there, but it is a piss poor quality controlled setting. I still bought stuff, but I just opened the chardonnay and it had a pretty strong vinegar taste. Wow, how did these guys even get a sign from the local wine organization? Unless you want to try almost 10 different fruit ports don’t bother.

Flawed wines, nice folks
Oct 2017 • Couples
As others have written, the couple seemed very sweet. The wine, however, was clearly flawed. The Pinot and other red were both a tawny brown at only two years old, clearly oxidized even from a freshly opened bottle. My husband likened one to a Flanders red ale which is soured by bacterial action. This operation has some sanitation or storage issues to address within their process. The port style wines seemed more stable, which makes sense. The whites were ok I guess.

Great find!
Aug 2015 • Couples
We visited several wineries in Hood River and this one was by far our favorite. The owner was so friendly and knowledgeable that we instantly felt at home here. Also her prices were so much better than the other places. We ended up with several bottles of wine and will definitely return on our next trip to the Hood River area!

GREAT WINES AT GREAT PRICES!!!
Jul 2015
This winery is somewhat off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. Generous wine tasting by a most congenial and knowledgeable hostess in a lovely rustic vineyard atmosphere without pressure or hustle. The delicious wines 'speak' for themselves and are priced to spring off the shelves.

Decent wine, some interesting ports
Jul 2015 • Couples
This isn't a fancy tasting room and the wines are decent and worth a taste. There are a number of fruit ports which are interesting.

Not remotely worth the trip.
Jul 2015
Rather a sad little spot that disappoints immensely. That is, it's in a gorgeous location and surrounding vineyards are first-rate. However, the tasting room is virtually a hot shed, presided over by a grumpy gent who misleads about the offerings. All whites tasted like vinegar and the reds were scarcely better. I won't go on, as there's no reason to visit this spot.

Don't even think about it.
Mar 2013 • Couples
The unkept property and empty parking lot should have been clues that we were at the wrong place. Gamely, my wife and I entered in with the hope of finding a secret treasure. What ensued was probably the worst tasting experience out of the nearly 100 wineries we have visited. We began with what was supposed to be Pinot Noir, then Merlot, then Cabernet Sauvignon. The colors of each was some sort of tinged orange/brown mix (our hostest described it as "brickish") and the taste was simply awful (I would call it "brackish"). The funny thing is that the three "red" varietals all tasted the same - it was like they had the same wine in different bottles. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. Hard to believe anyone could give this place five stars, or four, or three. Perhaps their dessert wines tell another story - we were able to force one down after the table wines but our pallettes lay in waste at that point. Pass this place by and head to Marchesi - it was terrific and restored our faith in the local winemakers.

Only if you like sweet wines
Jul 2012 • Couples
This is the only winery we did not buy a bottle to get our tasting fee back. Wines were just too sweet and fruity for us. Not one of the nicer wineries in Hood River, but located right near all the others so we stopped by. will not return.
