Stave and Stone is a sight for sore eyes. Not only does the vineyard offer gorgeous mountain views with your wine, but you’ll be enjoying your drink on a slice of century-old farming land. This is classic Hood River.
Historically Hood River
Stave and Stone began as a family apple and pear farm a century ago. After growing produce for so long, the family decided to try something new and planted hay to add nitrogen back into the soil. The first block of Pinot Noir was planted in 2012. Today, the vineyard grows Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay varietals.
Even Stave and Stone’s winemaker has roots in Hood River. Rich Cushman is a well-known Gorge vintner who has worked with Phelps Creek Vineyards and Mount Hood Winery among others. He has his own private label Viento, and his son, Peter Cushman, runs Springhouse Cellar. Cushman has helped wineries win multiple awards, so you know you’re getting a great glass when he’s involved.

Inside the tasting room, you can purchase sips, glasses or bottles of wine. Stave and Stone also supplies nonalcoholic beverages, ciders and beers. They serve small plates, cheese boards and dark chocolate truffles.
We love that Stave and Stone offers wine and food pairings such as the Legacy flight that teaches you about what you’re drinking and gives a few ideas for when you bring the wine home.
The vineyard regularly features live music. If you haven’t listened to live music in a vineyard, now is your chance. The landscape gives the music a certain appeal you won’t get anywhere else. This landscape is especially beautiful. The Broken Boulder vineyard has views of Mount Hood and Mount Adams.
You can check for upcoming events on the winery’s website. The tasting room is kid friendly, too, so you’re welcome to bring the whole family.
