Wine Tours of the Columbia River Gorge & Columbia Valley AVAs (CGWR)

(Oregon & Washington State)

"Columbia River Gorge AVA; a really specific, little tucked away corner of the world.  Pinot Noir; Merlot; Cab's; Syrah's; the most haunting and brilliant and thrilling and subtle and ancient wines on the planet." ***

The view from Mistral Ranch (Memaloose/ McCormick Family Vineyards), courtesy of foodwineclick.com.

"One hour from Portland, America's most unique AVA features double volcano views of Mt Hood and Mt Adams, wild beauty, traffic free touring, relaxed tasting rooms and European style white and BIG RED French, Italian and Spanish varietals.  Using traditional winemaking techniques or wine blends, the winemakers produce anything from Alberiňo and Zinfindel (11%) to Syrah (9%) and Merlot (6%) to Pinot Noir (31%) and Chardonnay (8%) and 37 other varietals. It's like traveling a "World of Wine in 40 miles".

Some terroirs speak in gradations of nuance, Burgundy for instance.  The Gorge is the opposite. As one races from sea level to alpine heights and moves from rainforest to desert with extreme geographic & climate changes; there is an amazing diversity of grapes grown here. Nearly any expression of wine is possible. The Gorge wineries are an exploration of the expressions of Gorge wine.

The Hood River Valley is eerily similar to the Napa Valley of 70 years ago, cooler, and filled with orchards before the vineyards came. The Columbia Gorge is a potential paradise for wine production." More

Fun Fact

Starting at the west side of our Columbia Gorge AVA (near Hood River) and heading east, rainfall diminishes almost one inch per mile while sunshine increases dramatically.  Great to know heading into the colder seasons!

  • 4-Hour Tour  (standard with Hood River area pickup) - Our most popular tour length, in which you will probably visit between 3-5 wineries with a Hood River area pickup location.  The fun & frivolity usually starts around 9:30am or 2pm and returns around 1:30 or 6pm; but customized tour times are possible. 

  • 6-Hour Tour (standard with Portland area pickup) - Our longer tour, in which you will probably visit between 3-5 wineries with a Portland area pickup location or 4-7 wineries with a Hood River pickup.  The fun & frivolity usually starts around 11AM and returns around 5pm; but customized tour times are possible. 

  • 8-Hour Tour - This tour offers your group a more relaxed afternoon or you are able to visit more wine country wineries, a combination tour with the Columbia R. Gorge or Mt. Hood or a custom tour. Your group will probably visit between 5-7 wineries with a Portland area pickup location.  The fun & frivolity usually starts around 10AM and returns around 6pm; but customized tour times are possible. 

Bonus: Traveling to Hood River there are at least 2 highly recommended bonus stops to enjoy. First is Multnomah Falls (about 30 minutes), and the 2nd is Mitchell Point Viewpoint (pictured right).
