Columbia Gorge Wineries You Must Visit

Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is a 40-minute drive east of Portland, Oregon and it’s home to some of the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever seen—beautiful mountains, stunning rivers and lakes, and deep rolling green hills. This past July, I headed up to Columbia Gorge to visit four delightful wineries in the Pacific Northwest. I wanted to share with you these Columbia Gorge Wineries that I adore, in no particular order!

Additionally, if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, be sure to check out my blog post about Woodinville, another Washington Wine Country favorite, which is about 45 minutes from Seattle. And find my Seattle Dining Guide on the blog here.

Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for my future adventures. And if you visit any of these lovely wineries, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Facebook!

AniChe Cellars

AniChe Cellars is a boutique, family-owned winery in Columbia Gorge. Everybody I met there was so welcoming and I had a great time! The wines were beautifully decorated and they also tasted amazing. It was such a great way to spend the day, munching on bread and cheese, trying delicious wines, and chatting with friendly faces. 71 Little Buck Creek Rd, Underwood, WA 98651

Tasting the AmiChe Cellars Goat Boy. This was a delicious full-body red which paired perfectly with this French Cheese.

AniChe Cellars has the most spectacular views of the Columbia Gorge River. Pretty hard to beat these delicious wines, great company and stunning natural views.

Founder and Head Winemaker Rachael Horn. I got to chat with her while sipping on these gorgeous wines. I wish we could have talked all day, but as Head Winemaker, there’s a lot for her to do at the winery!

COR Cellars

COR Cellars is another one of the many fabulous Columbia Gorge Wineries I visited. What makes COR unique is their philosophy: creating wines that pair perfectly with food. The wines were stellar and even better with a snack! Driving into COR was also amazing. Didn’t I tell you how gorgeous the scenery was? The weather couldn’t have been better either. 151 Old Hwy 8, Lyle, WA 98635

Upon arriving at COR, I was welcomed with a glass of wine. The setting of COR was so beautiful. Check out the large open seating area behind her where I enjoyed my outside tasting (COVID-safe)!

The stunning COR Cellars Tasting Room. I visited during COVID, so I tasted outside, but I took a peek of this gorgeous room!

All smiles at COR Cellars. This winery has the most gorgeous architectural design and is beyond photogenic.

Savage Grace Wines

Savage Grace Wines, just like the other fabulous Columbia Gorge Wineries on this trip, welcomed me with wonderful hospitality. I got to try a variety of different wines (much to my wine blogger delight!) and each one was special in its own way. This is why I love wine—I can taste so many wonderful flavors and textures. Savage Grace has another location in Woodinville, but this one in Columbia Gorge was just as nice. I will definitely be coming again! 442 Kramer Rd, Underwood, WA 98651

Syncline Winery

Syncline Winery is the last (but certainly not least) winery on this list. It’s a small, family-owned winery in Columbia Gorge dedicated to intentional, small-scale winemaking. I felt so relaxed amidst the gorgeous scenery and flowers, fabulous wines, and wonderful company. From the first sip, I could tell immediately that this was a winery that had truly mastered the basics and was intent on making deliciously simple and classy wines. You won’t want to miss it! 111 Balch Rd, Lyle, WA 98635
