Owner description: We make wines with an eye to European tradition with a particularly Washington State sense of terroir and style. Our wines are almost entirely varietal blends, believing that wine varietals are very much like people and dogs, with an egalitarian mixing up of characteristics to create interesting nuances and surprising complexity and beauty (think Halle Berry, mutts and Bordeaux). Our fruit comes from Washington state’s plethora of renowned AVA’s, including our very own Columbia Gorge AVA. We are currently closed for the winter season and will reopen February 2016. Our Hood River location is open Thursday through Monday.

What a delightful find! Whether you're a sophisticated wine collector or "I know what I like" newbies to wine like us, AniChe offers a genuinely warm welcome, a great tasting (including terrific hor d'eurves, fantastic, unique wines, and truly helpful learning about blended wines--all without an ounce of snootiness! My favorite quote: "If YOU love the wine, then it's the best wine in the world!" The tasting room barn is beautiful, the grounds quiet and relaxing. Be sure you take the eastern (not western) Cook-Underwood road up to the vineyard.

I was on a wine tour Saturday and we stopped by this gem of a winery in the Columbia Gorge. Rachel (winemaker/owner) made our group feel very welcome and spent time sharing her wines with us. Wines were wonderful. Food was an added bonus. Please try this new winery. You won't be disappointed!

AniChe Winery and Tasting Room is unique in the Gorge as the wine is made by a passionate female. She offers wines for the Columbia Gorge AVA including a delicious red, "Atticus", made by co-fermenting syrah with viognier. At this time, the tasting room is pleasant but not formal, family run, and make you feel welcome and a part of their venture. The view is one of the best in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. You will be welcomed by kid friendly winery dogs and a place to picnic.
