Columbia River Gorge Blog
With 29 tasting rooms and wineries and more in the works, the Columbia River Gorge is a great place to spend a day to visit the many wineries, offering a scenic drive tour in itself.
"A World of Wine in Forty Miles". That's the motto for the Columbia Gorge Winegrowers. Americas' Most Unique Wine Region is located less than an hour East of Portland, Oregon. Straddling the mighty Columbia River, the Columbia Gorge Growing Region includes the fertile soils of both Washington and Oregon. From the marine influenced climate of Underwood Mountain to the arid dryland of the Eastern Gorge, from Albarino to Zinfandel, the grapes and wines of this unique region are a spectacular selection of sweet whites and luscious reds.
The wineries span the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area through 40 miles of peaceful, open-roads running through double mountain views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams.
We hope that during your visit to the Portland area, you carve out some time to enjoy one, or more, of the many wonderful wineries that we have listed for you to enjoy. Please see our website.

This lodge is one of the friendliest places I know. Everyone seems to genuinely enjoy working there and doing whatever they can to assist the guests.
