Hood Crest has a unique, casual atmosphere that will make you feel right at home. Some images have links that transition to pages with more detail. Hood Crest Winery and Distillers is located in the Columbia Gorge AVA. Our estate is located in the lower Hood River Valley, our vines grow atop the gravely soil of the Rockford Reach and feed on the ancient waters of Mt. Hood’s Eliot Glacier, which produce a flinty crispness always high in minerals and deep in flavor for our grapes.
The Columbia Gorge, the ultimate signature of a mighty river, is home to the ridge and valley topography created by some millennia of volcanic activity. The resulting basalt flows, rich soil and micro climates have rendered an outstanding venue for world class vineyards from which we forge our own history of award winning wines.
