The Gorge White House

Featuring All Wines of the Gorge: Hwy 35, Hood River, Oregon


 

MARYHILL WINERY, WA
Maryhill Winery is Washington State's premier destination winery featuring one of the Northwest's most desirable microclimates for growing grapes. Picnicking is encouraged on our spacious and scenic maryhill winery covered arbor with perfect river views.

Possibly the most enjoyable part of Maryhill, from a grower's standpoint, is the wide variety of grapes the area will support - including several difficult to grow varietals often stunted in many of the region's other vineyards.

They focus their vineyards on producing premium red wines, with special attention to Syrah and Sangiovese. Their larger vineyards include blocks of Zinfandel, Viognier, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, as well as smaller sections for Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Grenache.

* Book a Room and get a Free Maryhill Concert Shuttle from the Celilo Inn.

Cascade Cliffs Vineyard & Winery



Majestic riverfront scenery, towering 400 foot basalt cliffs and luscious sun-soaked vineyards host a petite winery's distinctive estate varietals. Ask questions about the hard to grow Nebllio grape, stick your nose in a glass, hike the vineyards or chose a chore. Family picnicking is welcome.

Dry Hollow


Taste wine on the vineyard. Dry Hollow Vineyards is surrounded by the Hi-Valley Cherry Orchard in The Dalles, Oregon. The Hi Valley Vineyard is planted on a south-facing slope in rocky stone laden soil. These soils and the hot, dry climate in this part of the Columbia River Gorge combine to create optimum growing conditions for the wines we make. Our scenic tasting room, nestled among the cherry orchard, is located next to the Hi Valley Vineyard.



 

Sunshine Mill

The Sunshine Mill tasting room features the wines of Quenett Winery in a unique, world-class environment that you must see for yourself!

Wine tasting begins daily at 12:00pm.

Our interior incorporates the original machinery of the flour mill that occupied this building since 1918! The history of the building is cherished by the community of The Dalles and is found inspiring by our visitors

 

 

 


Erin Glenn

Erin Glenn’s first estate vineyards of Syrah & Gewürztraminer were planted in the spring of 2002 and the winery’s maiden production happened the following year, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris as the offerings. Later came the birth of “Tantrum Red” ~ a fun red blend, and what has become Erin Glenn’s signature in the Columbia Gorge. Tantrum is a blend of locally grown fruit ~ Pinot Noir, Merlot & Barbera.

Erin Glenn now produces such little-known varietals as Tempranillo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Viognier, as well as the more familiar wines like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah.


Maison de Glace

A new boutique winery in 2012, downtown the Dalles.

From the banks of the Columbia River Gorge comes a winery founded on the vision of creating exquisite wines that embody the many virtues that this dynamic region has to offer. From the vine to the bottle, great care, diligence, and attention to quality are combined to produce the most flavorful and memorable wines in the Gorge.


Waving Tree Vineyards & Winery
Wines produced here include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Barbera, Grenache, Syrah and Viognier. A small tasting room near Maryhill Park with very informative staff. Family owned and run. It's my personal favorite for wine,& is another gem on the Value menu!

Jacob Williams

Jacob Williams Winery is a family owned and operated winery in the Columbia River Gorge with a Tasting Room on Hwy 14 near Avery Park. The winery produces under 2000 cases of ultra premium wine annually from some of the best vineyards in the Columbia Valley AVA and around the Columbia River Gorge. Brad Gearhart owns and operates Jacob Williams with the help of award-winning wine consultant John Haw, formerly of Maryhill and Sokol Blosser. Brad graduated from the University of Oregon in the 1987 and moved to Portland in 1992. He and his college roommate started Dry Hollow Vineyards in The Dalles in 2003. The wine operations and production were moved to an updated facility in Hood River a few years later, and the name was changed to Jacob Williams after Brad’s two sons.

 



Cor

COR Cellars was started in 2005 by Luke Bradford. After working in the Val D’Orcia in southern Tuscany for Tenuta di Trinoro and then on Mt Etna in Sicily for Passopisciaro from 2000-2002, Luke returned to Washington and went to work as assistant winemaker for Wind River Cellars and then Syncline Wine Cellars in the Columbia River Gorge.
Seeing the enormous potential in Washington fruit, Luke embarked on his own and planted vineyards. Moving into a renovated facility in Kyle, WA in 2006, CAR Cellars now makes five wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Momentum (Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Malbec), Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Alba Cor (Pinot Gris/Gewurztraminer.)




Domaine Poullion

Domaine Pouillon welcomes you! Our family-owned and operated winery nestles into the beautiful Columbia River Gorge near Lyle, Washington. Each year we produce 1500 cases of premium wine and 50 happy chickens (maybe one or two cranky ones…) Our farming philosophy includes biodynamics and hand-crafting with minimal mechanization in our “petit” winery.

 

 

 


Syncline

syn•cline \'sin-klin\ n (1873) : a trough of stratified rock in which the beds dip toward each other from either side.

Syncline’s first vintage consisted of 76 cases of Celilo Vineyards Pinot Noir from vines planted in 1972. The next year, production was increased to include Columbia Valley Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah. At the same time we began working with vineyards planted with Viognier, Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussanne, Cinsault, Counoise and more Syrah. We have kept production under 3,000 cases annually to ensure that we stay intimate with each barrel and every vine.



Wheatridge Winery

The Bartlemay Ranch has been family owned and operated
for over a century.
William Bartlemay settled the land just before the turn
of the century, along
with several farmers in the area. Over the next several
years, as the
neighboring homesteaders sold out, William was there
to acquire
the land and start his own small, yet distinguished
ranch. The large herd of cattle which used to
run freely in the tall
grasses and fallow wheat fields is now gone.
In it's place is a vineyard, looking strangely
foreign in the desert conditions, and a blossoming
winery. William's grandson, Larry Bartlemay,
has changed from a teenage cowhand and wheat
farmer to a dignified owner and vintner.
His natural talent for growing things in the dry
conditions of Eastern Oregon has gone a long way.

Marshal's Winery & Vineyard

Marshal's Winery is a small but growing operation with a wide range of mouth watering wines to satisfy everyone's tasting pleasure. Varieties exclusive only to Marshal's Vineyard round out a menu of great wine, atmosphere and fresh local treats. The Marshal family has been making a wide base of varietals since 1999. The vines that stretch over the hills produce cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah and, most recently, barbera. Ron Marshal also crafts cooler white varietals from White Salmon grapes. You are often greeted personally by "Mr. Ron Jon", if not handed a plate of smoked salmon by his lovely wife Lily, along with your wines! We enjoy the Gold Medal Barbera and Syrah Reserve here.


Memaloose
Grown and produced in a National Scenic Area by the McCormick Family, these wines are prepared to
complement food. Estate vineyard sites lie on both the Washington and Oregon slopes of the Columbia River, at various elevations and in distinct micro-climates spread throughout this exciting, young AVA. Our spectacular winery and tasting room setting overlooks the AVA from high above the River near Lyle, Washington.
