Underwood Mountain

Panorama of Underwood Mountain Vineyard

To step onto the Underwood Mountain Vineyard is to be transported to another time and place. One feels like they are in the Swiss Alps. The vineyard is planted on a light-reddish volcanic sandy, clay loam called the “Underwood Series” that has accumulated through millennia of loess deposits and the slow degradation of the long extinct Underwood Mountain volcano. Under this light, quickly draining soil are basalt boulders ranging from as small as a fist to as large as a Winnebago. These special soils in conjunction with the truly cool sub-alpine climate make it the perfect site to grow aromatic white grapes.

In the heart of the Columbia Gorge AVA located at the eastern edge of the Cascade Mountains, across the Columbia River from Hood River, Oregon, Underwood catches the last of the cooling maritime influence that dominates the Willamette Valley to the southwest. High up the mountain the vineyard escapes the heat and allows us to make focused mineral driven white wine.
