This is a great local Hood River Winery. I decided to become a member this past spring!
The wine culture is very important to the Gorge and the Hood River population.
Franco Marchesi grew up in Peimonte, Italy. He came to the states at 22 years old, working in the wine business in San Fransisco for many years. In 2003 he purchased an old apple orchard, revitalizing it into Marchesi Vinyards.
To become a member, it is very easy! All you have to do is sign-up!
Every 6 months, they chose 6 bottles that they send you (you pay for these of course but at a discounted price), and they also give you a FREE bottle of your choice. You also get other member discounts when you visit the winery.
My shipment will be arriving soon! I love their wine.

Of course, alcohol can have many bad side effects as well.
Drinking wine in moderation can have some health benefits as noted above. Please drink responsibly.
