About
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!

The staff was friendly and welcoming. This place is set up for wine tasting with the individual tasting area. These are outside with barriers dividing up the area. Nice way to get the setting right for wine tasting. The wines were good. We enjoyed the red wines the best.

Marchesi has very pleasant grounds--part of the vineyard is actually next to the tasting area. We had a comfortable seating area, and enjoyed their wine while the rain stopped and started.

The tasting flight was mainly dry reds, so instead of paying $20, my wife, daughter and her boyfriend all had a glass we liked instead, as there was also a small selection of off-dry and sweet whites.

I appreciate the fact that we were not rushed, even though the vineyard was pretty busy.

Stopped here for wine tasting on a road trip. No tasting bar open, ordered at the counter by the glass, (about $1 a glass) You could order half glasses and make your own tasting, so to speak, which is what each couple did. That worked fine, just was a different experience than what we were expecting but understandable with all the COVID restrictions. Beautiful vineyard, friendly staff. Very clean. Wine was good.

First of all let me begin with my impression of the safety adhered to at Marchesi. I’m a senior and considered high risk for Covid so I am nervous about going out. Marchesi goes overboard to insure the safety of customers as well as their staff. I felt totally safe there.
This is our favorite winery in Hood River. Today we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Rose made with Sangiovese grapes. We sat among the grape vines and had a delightful time.

We had such a wonderful experience at Marchesi Vineyards. The weather helped in that regard, but the wine was the spot light. The staff were all incredible and friendly. We asked to me moved from our original seat to a winery view and the waitress was so understanding, she even came back and checked on us several times. We love her!!! She had so much knowledge about wines and the new waitress was equally as knowledgeable. And everyone was friendly and welcoming.

As for the wine. Very delicious. Hearty reds, a couple delicate whites and one seriously tasty Prosecco. I’m not a fan of their bottle label but the wines are spectacular. Oh and they have outstanding olive oil. We brought a bit of everything home. Oh, I almost forgot the charcuterie trays are delicious too. We ordered a small one and it was big.

I highly recommend this winery during your trip in Hood River wine country. They have great outdoor seating with breathtaking views. Magnificent!!!

This vineyard deserves to be at the top of your Hood River bucket list! We had a table between the vines that separated us from everyone else and it was wonderful. The tasting was perfect and the service was excellent. Our southern waitress was absolutely amazing. So friendly and knowledgeable. She told us all bout the history of the vineyard and really knew about the wine she was serving.

We had a terrific experience at Marchesi. We called the day before and made a reservation and were glad we did because it was a busy weekend afternoon. Exceptional service. Our server was engaging and knowledgable (Jamie). We enjoyed tasting several wines we havent had before. Nice selection of red wines. We enjoyed the Barbera and Sangovese the best! Lovely setting on the patio next to the vineyard. Generous tasting of 4 wines and then we tried two more). The large cheese and meat board was great four our group of four. One of Our favorite places of all the vineyards we visited over the weekend.

Franco has made a wonderful place to eat, drink and enjoy good company. I first started going here almost 12 years ago. He only had a card table and 5 wines, but what amazing wines. Treated everyone as welcomed guests and continues that, even if the winery has grown quite a bit. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through Hood River. Thanks again to Franco and the whole family.

This vineyard has a beautiful outdoor seating area with umbrellas for extra shade during the hotter months. The host was very welcoming and showed us to a beautiful table next to the vines. It was very cool to be able to sit so close to the vines! They had some great music on and it was fun to relax and try the wines. My favorite was the Cereja and I ended up taking that one home. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would love to come again.

This is a beautiful place to taste wine; they have semi-private cabanas right next to the vineyard, or comfy couches and chairs both indoors or out. The staff was incredibly friendly, and when we mentioned we were from out of state, they really went out of their way to chat with us about wine from the area and point us toward other great wineries to try after them. Although we loved the setting, the wine wasn’t to our taste. It was good wine; just not what we like. However, if you enjoy Italian style wines, by all means, GO. You’ll have a nice time and enjoy yourself and the wine!
