6 of the Best Columbia Gorge Wineries
1. Naked Winery
Naked Winery in Hood River is perfect for a date night or a cheeky girl’s weekend. This company focuses on the romance of wine; it can definitely be seen in their risqué labels and name! They offer both red and white wines, and the grapes have been grown right here in Oregon and Washington. To try them, we recommend going to their main tasting room less than a half hour away from Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins. Try each wine individually for $2 a splash, or get a $15 flight to keep your Naked Winery glass!
2. The Gorge White House
The Gorge White House is a family-run establishment that has been operating for over 100 years. They are only open from April to October, a time that is naturally marked by the flower fields beginning to bloom and ending with the first frost. Sit down for a glass of wine or hard cider before taking a walk through their gorgeous grounds. They have more than 50 varieties of dahlias among other types of flowers, and you are welcome to pick your own gorgeous bouquet. Coming here is truly a unique experience!
3. COR Cellars
Located in Lyle, Washington, COR Cellars produces both red and white wines. Open year round, you can visit them for a tasting Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’d like to come in at another time or are itching for a private tour, just give them a call! “COR” is the Latin word for heart and body– they believe that their wines are the perfect expression of the human condition. You’ll have to try their flavorful wines for yourself!
4. Domaine Pouillon Winery
As soon as you step foot onto the Domaine Pouillon Winery, you can tell that the vineyard is a product of expert care. Juliet and Alexis Pouillon work together to create small batches of delicious wines on their small slice of Columbia River Gorge paradise. Their tasting room is beautiful and luxurious, yet warm and comfortable. You can try a variety of wines created from their locally harvested grapes on the weekends from 12-7 or by appointment. Make sure you have a glass outside on the patio so you can enjoy the gorgeous hillside views!
5. Maryhill Winery
If you’re looking to visit Columbia Gorge wineries in unique locations, try the Maryhill Winery. This gorgeous winery offers breathtaking views of the Columbia River and Mt. Hood. Next door, you can find the stunning waterfront Maryhill State Park, the Maryhill Museum of Art, and even a full-size replica of the Stonehenge. Experience one of Washington’s most popular wineries when you go on one of their many tours, and make sure to come back for their summer concert series!
6. Syncline Winery
Syncline Winery is one of the most beautiful Columbia Gorge wineries you can visit! Go on a tasting tour to see how the magic happens. Then, sit out and relax at the picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, or hammocks with views of the expansive vineyard and gardens with a glass of wine and snacks! They even have a secret picnic spot you can make an appointment for. The entire property is enchanting and something you don’t want to miss.
