Named after Mt. Hood's Cathedral Ridge
When you look at Mt. Hood you’ll notice a striking feature, a knife edge ridge running off the summit to the Northwest. This is Cathedral Ridge. Awe inspiring in its ruggedness, it is known by the local climbers as some of the most amazing climbing in the Pacific Northwest. Owner and Cellarmaster, Robb Bell, purchased Cathedral Ridge Winery (formerly Flerchinger Vineyards) and thought it was a fitting moniker for his winery. While you are here ask about the Native American love story and legend of Mount Hood and the neighboring volcanos.
