Winemaker

Dave Paige developed his interest in wine while working at a wine shop in Ohio.  He moved to California to enroll in the Viticulture and Enology program at U.C. Davis, where he earned his Fermentation Science degree in 1989. Dave’s diverse experience has included time at wineries in the Sierra Nevada foothills, the Napa Valley, Australia, and Monterey.

While making Pinot noir at two wineries in Monterey, CA, Dave traveled to Oregon many times to compare wines and ideas with other Pinot producers. On one such trip in 2001, he and David Adelsheim discussed their shared belief that restrained winemaking methods lead to greater complexity and balance. Dave joined Adelsheim as Winemaker in September of that year, just in time for harvest.  He has brought an open-minded approach and a willingness to combine new and old techniques in pursuit of classic, elegant wines.  He continues to enjoy the collaborative, pioneering spirit of the Oregon wine industry.
