Activity Overview
Columbia Grapes Vineyards, the Best in the World
With just a small geographical size, the Columbia River Gorge vineyards have no equal in the world. The vines flourish throughout the winter and summer seasons with their tastes changing accordingly. In addition, the rain pattern that differs from the eastern part of the Columbia Gorge AVA to its western end favors all varieties of grapes. The Columbia Gorge AVA is in a strategic place as in its western boundary, an individual can view the eastern side of the crest of the Cascades. When the maritime air moves eastwards, you can have an opportunity to see as the vine varieties interchange.

Depending on the size of your group, you will be ferried by an appropriate vehicle. However, don’t end your visit without visiting the Maryhill Winery. It is located in a place where you can have a clear view of the Columbia River. Above all, you will view the beautiful sceneries including the Cascade Mountains and the vineyards.

Columbia a Place to Call Home
Nearly all aspects in Columbia are appealing to the eyes, and all types of wines are available. Therefore, you might end up spending all your vacation on one part of the Columbia and ignore the other. On your first day head up the Columbia River and view the Multnomah waterfall among the different waterfalls. Also, as you take this route, you can check on the famous wineries such as the Pheasant Valley and Marches Vineyards. Before thinking of leaving this city, look for a guide to take you at the Neolithic structure. This prehistoric monument will entice you to visit the place once more.
