The Ruins

A Columbia Gorge boutique Winery, Event and Wedding Venue located in Hood River, Oregon.

Springhouse Cellar began in a tiny stone building on the Rowena crest above the Columbia River and is now housed in a century-old building that was originally home to a pear cannery and distillery in beautiful downtown Hood River. The building is constructed with massive beams, wide wood floors and a long comfortable bar. In the 1950’s, a fire all but destroyed the east side of the building - leaving what we now affectionally call ‘the Ruins’. Thankfully nobody ever got around to tearing down those walls.

Today we hand-craft small lots of premium wines with fruit from select Columbia Gorge vineyards. We believe wine belongs on the table, so our mission downstairs (in the winery) is to produce complex, food-friendly wines that reflect the jaw-dropping beauty of the Gorge. The goal upstairs (in the tasting room) is to help you discover how our wines will flourish in your kitchen and on your table as you gather with family and friends.

Wine tasting at Springhouse is a fun experience with knowledgeable staff, in a relaxed but sophisticated environment. Whether you have a well established cellar or are just learning about wine, we would love to see you. Join us any day of the week, noon to 6pm (closed Mondays November thru March).

Locals and visitors also associate Springhouse with our music series, Ruins Tuesday, held in the outdoor ‘Ruins’. This delightful partnership with local food vendors and regional musicians has become a summer tradition. 

The music series doesn’t end with summer, but rolls indoors for Back Room Tuesday thru mid-November, resuming again in March. Locals are invited to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, great music, Springhouse wines, local beers and a local food vendor.

Fine wine with great entertainment and local events - a winning combination for
Hood River!
