At Hood Crest Winery it’s all about the reds, the whites and the blues (flights + music). Winemakers and blues recording artists Tess and Patrik Barr have been making music and wine together since the 80’s. Join them on Saturday afternoons for live music by The Tess Barr Band 3:00 to 5:30!
This “secret winery” does everything from crush to bottle on premises, and focuses on boutique BIG RED varieties from the Columbia Valley such as Merlot, Malbec, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and red blends. They also make Gorge Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Riesling.
And they offer amazing gourmet, estate farm-to-table handmade pizzas.
The secret is out! Now with dozens of awards and a stunning new tasting room, Hood Crest Winery is a must see Hood River Valley.
