Franco Marchesi's passion for wine began in his hometown of Borgosesia,...

Franco Marchesi's passion for wine began in his hometown of Borgosesia, Peimonte, Italy. As a child he always wondered what it would be like to be a winemaker like his grandfather Achille. After running his own import company specializing in Italian wines for over 20 years, Franco began planting his favorite Northern Italian grapes in Hood River, where the climate and soil are just like Northern Italy. Please come visit, and taste our wines. Salute!

What a lovely place to hang out with friends/spouse. Not pretentious, just comfortable and welcoming. Seating is set mostly outside. I have seen some people playing games and just hanging out. Small plates of cheese, meats are delicious. This is definitely a value and the wine suberb.

My inlaws are members. However, I am not a wine expert by any means. This was a laid back and comfortable place to try great wine and learn. Plus while sitting on the patio a beautiful dog and two cats checked on us while we snacked on the plate of salami, cheese, and bread. Prices were reasonable for the area.... More

A visit to Marchesi Vineyards is a slice of Italy. Although the Italian varietal wines are award winning and the setting in the vineyard is reminiscent of old Italian vineyard charm, it's the wine servers and the owners, Franco and Sandy Marchesi, that make this a must visit. The wine servers are so knowable of the wines they are pouring... More

This was again, a wonderful day outing with friends. Though it was chilly outside, numerous space heaters were on to keep us all warm. We brought snacks, and were made to feel right at home, with reason to rush. The owners, Franco and Sandy were on hand, and as usual, were greeting everyone with open arms. We absolutely love this...

Marchesi is a great place to sit outside by the vines or inside on the comfortable couches. It is a dog friendly winery, so it's easy to enjoy if traveling with your pup. Marchesi wines are different than most of their neighbors, having Italian varietals to offer. If you go, don't miss the cheese and Italian salami plate!

We visited this local winery for the first time in late September with 4 of our guests. We had an enjoyable time sampling a few of the wines and enjoying a platter of appetizers. Prices are higher than some places we've tried, but the wines we tried were great.

We arrived at Marchesi Vineyards soon after they opened on a sunny Saturday morning. We decided to do the wine tasting flight and also ordered a cheese and meat plate. We sat outside on the covered patio overlooking the grape vines...we felt like we were back in Europe! The wines we tasted were very good and we purchased three bottles... More

This vineyard focuses on Italian wines. And the choices are excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful - aiding our tasting selections. By far the best of several wineries we have visited in the area

We had so much fun at this winery. The employee's level of customer service was top notch. The wines are amazing and the outdoor setting area was wonderful. Would definitely return to this winery! Highly suggest it!
