About
We are a small, family-owned and operated vineyard and winery in one of the grape-growing “sweet spots” of the Pacific Northwest, the Columbia River Gorge (now an official AVA), more specifically the Hood River Valley.

Nice setting, friendly staff, and some of their wines are very nice. Try the Gewurz...it is special.

On a recent trip (August, 2008) through the Columbia River Valley, my husband and I made a special effort to stop at the Hood River Vineyards - recommended in a Northwest Guidebook by Insight Guides. Our first red flag should have been that we were...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

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.

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...More

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...More

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...More

Not the most impressive winery in Hood River - it lacks the polish of the others in the valley. However, they are the oldest winery in the area so it does have it's place in the market. I tried several of their traditional wines, but...More
