Even though Adelsheim wines–the pinot noir especially–rank among the very best that Oregon produces, David Adelsheim didn’t know, when he and his wife bought 19 acres on a hillside in 1971, that he was going to start a winery. Says David: “When we started planting grapes, we sort of fantasized that we might make some wine down the road.”
Now, Adelsheim wines are praised by widely as some of the best wine Oregon produces. The Adelsheim Vineyard estate includes nine vineyard sites on the Chehalem Mountains, totaling 168 acres, and annual production has grown to 40,000 cases.
Second generation wine maker, Michael Adelsheim will be at Arrow Wine in Kettering on Sept 3 from 5-7pm hosting a tasting of their Willamette Valley wines. Don’t miss this chance to taste some of Oregon’s best wines and while you are there have Michael sign a bottle or two for your collection.
