We are a growing winery with big personality, and call Hood River, Oregon our home. We have both Oregon and Washington wineries located within the Columbia River Gorge. Our flagship tasting room is in our beautiful hometown of Hood River, OR, not far from our Naked headquarters. Located 60 miles east of Portland, it's just a quick drive along the scenic Columbia River Gorge away. You can also get Naked regularly in our other Oregon tasting rooms: our spot in Bend's Old Mill District, our downtown McMinnville location, or our Oregon Coast Tasting Room in Seaside.
Our Winemaking Philosophy
Our winemaking is focused on the fruit. We are blessed with beautiful berries and our job is to nurture them with love and care until they are in the bottle for you to enjoy. Our “Big” red varietals (Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Zinfandel) are grown in the hot and dry Applegate and Columbia Valley regions of Oregon and Washington respectively.
While our food friendly varietals (Albariňo, Chardonnay, Muscat, Pinot Blanc/Gris/Noir and Riesling) benefit from the cool pacific marine layers of the Willamette and Rogue Valley and Columbia Gorge to produce subtle and complex wines. New American Oak is used judiciously to develop bouquets that complement our “Bold” wines while mostly neutral French barrels provide complexity and layering for our fruit forward wines.
