About Mount Hood Winery
In 2009, two brothers that came from a long lineage of fruit growers bought a 100-year old farm in the Hood River Valley. Their goal was to produce quality vintages on the fertile and well-maintained soil deposited by Mount Hood thousands of years ago.
Today, the Mt Hood Winery Hood River tasting room sits on 20 acres of rich, volcanic soil that gives the wines their characteristic full-bodied taste. A spectacular place for a vineyard tour, Mount Hood Winery is incredibly picturesque. Views of Mount Hood can be seen from almost anywhere on the property.
