Beer isn’t the only fermented product in the Hood River area. We’ve got wine, too. Boy, do we have wine.
Columbia Gorge wineries roll out the bottle on Memorial Day weekend May 26-28. More than 30 wineries host open houses featuring special releases, great discounts, food and more.
Winery members of the Columbia Gorge Wine Growers Association dot the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area along 40 miles of the great river, on both the Washington and Oregon sides. Visiting on-site tasting rooms gives a great excuse to take in mountain views of Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood, stop for a hike, grab some photos, explore local art galleries, drop in for a bite to eat at one of the Gorge’s great restaurants.
To aid your touring and determine tasting room hours, visit the association web site and get a downloadable map. You also can get a map at any participating winery.
