“Great spot for lunch while touring the Gorge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

We visited this winery during a day-long tour of the Columbia River Gorge. We did a tasting and chose a bottle of Pinot Gris for our packed-in lunch. It was beautiful at lunchtime, and we ate outside and enjoyed the wine and a view of Mt. Adams. Lovely.

“Beautiful location, good wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Although we went in November (when views of the surrounding mountains are rare), we were able to get a glimpse of Mount Adams as we left. The outdoor seating area would have been great in warmer weather. They do offer individual glasses for sale after you're done tasting.

The wine was good, but not our favorite. We had great service--the woman helping us was friendly and attentive even as more customers arrived. When we were down to our last two tastings and couldn't decide between three wines, she offered to pour smaller portions of each.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

I can't say enough about how much we love this place. We drive 75 miles one-way at least 4 or 5 times a year to Hood River and have to make this one of our stops each time. The wine, customer service, and view are all outstanding.

“Will never return”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We visited this winery earlier in the month. Not only did we not like any of the wines, but we felt like the staff was talking down to us at times. They charge $10 per person to taste 6 wines, and you get $5 taken off that price if you buy a bottle of wine, but most of the wines are quite pricey. That's okay - it's their business to run - but for the $10 per person we paid we didn't expect to be treated so poorly. One woman acted annoyed by our questions, and used the same terms over and over to describe almost all of the wines. She disappeared for a while, and someone else poured me another taste, but when she returned, she chastised me for choosing one type of wine after just sampling another. We are certainly not experts on wine, but know a little about what we're drinking, and, besides, we had come to have a good time. We left in a hurry.
