ABOUT THIS TOUR
Upon meeting at our headquarters in downtown Hood River we leave the city streets behind for a quick 5 minute shuttle to where we begin our adventure of bounty and bikes with batteries.
This tour is as much of an E-Bike ride through the Hood River Valley, as it is in sampling the vineyard grapes and getting to know the local lay of the land.
Once we turn the E-Bikes on we have Mount Hood in our view. Arriving atop the hill outside of Odell, Oregon, our first stop has double mountain views (Mount Adams & Mount Hood) and award winning wines. Here we enjoy fresh baguette sandwiches and seasonl fruit and fabled tales along with the varietals. This location shares the grounds of the Hood River Lavander Farm with 60 varities of aromatic bliss.
We head out to explore more of the 'fruit loop' covering some easy miles on quiet country roads, where we have often heard that it 'looks and feels like Tuscany'.
Next stop is a winery that has been around for 20 years but the fruits of their family labor are enriched into the valley soil for nearly a century. "Come for the wine, stay for the views".
Our final tasting is nearby (practically neighbors) which brings us to the oldest winery in the valley along with an award winning cider house. Best of both the worlds.
