Jacob Williams Winery
Sourcing grapes from the vineyards of the lush Columbia Valley AVA and the Columbia River Gorge, Jacob Williams Winery’s vintners produce about 2,000 cases of award-winning wine each year. Owner Brad Gearhart and winemaker John Haw combine their talents to create varietals including the 2007 cabernet sauvignon, winner of Best Red Wine at the 2010 Northwest Wine Summit, as well as a runner-up for Miss Congeniality. Jacob Williams accommodates all palates with its other offerings, which include zinfandel, a reserve syrah, and a red blend named Sadie Red, after the family dog.
The winery’s new tasting room overlooks vineyards, the Columbia River, and perfectly spaced cherry and peach orchards under the shadow of majestic Mount Hood. During warmer months, sippers can sample blends while sitting at the outdoor patio’s rustic wood tables. Those hoping to stock up on the vineyard’s stellar creations can join the wine club, which offers perks such as a 30% discount, invitations to special events, and a complimentary tasting for up to four guests.
