The BEST WESTERN PLUS Hood River Inn now offers a Wine Tasting Pass exclusively for our guests. Request your Wine Tasting Pass from the front desk and receive complimentary wine tasting at 11 participating local vineyards during the dates of your stay. You may also present a stamped pass booklet (with any number of stamps) to Riverside or Cebu for 25% off a bottle of local wine.
Please note that Winery hours change seasonally. Some are closed in the off-season, and some have limited tasting hours. The Wine Tasting Pass includes an off-season insert with our most recent information. Be sure to check each wineries' website for the very latest hours.
Local wineries participating in the Hood River Inn's Wine Tasting Pass include AniChe Cellars, Domaine Pouillon, Garnier Vineyards, Jacob Williams Winery, Maison de Glace Winery, Major Creek Cellars, Marchesi Vineyards, Memaloose Winery, Phelps Creek Vineyard, Sunshine Mill, and Stoltz Vineyards.
We started offering Riverside blend wines in 2009 as an effort to offer affordable house wine we could pour into carafes, or serve by the glass, while saving lots of bottles from recycling. Find out how our in-house oenophile and Catering Manager, Jan McCartan and "the wizardly winemaker of the Columbia Gorge," Rich Cushman, arrive at their wonderful blends at this BLOG post
