WINERIES of the GORGE

Nestled between the majestic peaks of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, the Gorge Wine region is defined by the Columbia River as it cuts through the Cascade Range. This dramatic transition in landscape and climate is enhanced by the cool moisture flowing eastward from the ocean, bringing 45 inches of rain per year to the western foothills of the Cascades and then dropping to as little as 10 inches in the dry, eastern desert. Though most wine regions don’t cross state lines, the Columbia River Gorge wine region is rare in that it’s comprised of an intrepid group of winemakers and growers on both shores of the river, Oregon and Washington. The wineries in the Columbia River Gorge are bound by their passion for the craft and commitment to the land.

The Columbia River Gorge lay as an undiscovered viticultural gem exploited by a few brave souls in the early 1970s and produces some of the top wines in the Pacific Northwest, made from a wealth of premium grape varieties grown right here. The wineries in the Columbia River Gorge have welcoming tasting rooms, stunning scenery and world-class recreation — all combined to make this area a wine touring paradise. Home to over 50 wineries and 90+ vineyards, the Gorge wine region awaits your discovery.
