AniChe Cellars is a small family winery located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. We make wines with an eye to European tradition with a particularly Washington State sense of terroir and style. Our wines are almost entirely varietal blends.

We intentionally searched this tasting room out, but found the building empty and locked. Then we checked their website (should have done so first) and they only list their original Underwood WA location.

Stopped to taste a flight of wine. Excellent arrangement - they gave me a dish with pairing snacks to complement each wine tasted. Great idea, I wish California tasting venues did the same. Great space as well. Plenty of room and big tables. Even having...More

We've been a member here for about a year now and AniChe has become one of our favorite wineries. Their selection of interesting, unique and tasty blends always surprise and delight. We try to visit often so we can taste the slight difference as the...More

We walked into the AniChe Cellars tasting room in Hood River on our first evening in town. They had live music on a Friday night which was fun to listen to while we did the flight of wine tastings. They paired their wine tastings with...More

When AniChe Cellars opened their downtown Hood River tasting room I was not a potential customer. (I had a very disappointing experience at the AniChe Underwood tasting room in October 2013 that generated a negative review on my part and an off-the-mark response from AniChe.)...More
