about Adelsheim

 

Adelsheim Vineyard was founded with an optimistic spirit and a lofty dream: to create world-class wines in an undiscovered wine region, the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Since 1971, we have obsessively pursued benchmark wines that celebrate the unique bounty of our estate vineyards -- home to some of Oregon’s most diverse soil types, elevations, and exposures. As a founding winery of the Willamette Valley and Chehalem Mountains’ first winery, Adelsheim has played an instrumental role in nearly every aspect of the Oregon wine story. As leaders, we believe it is our duty to be voracious stewards of this abundant land and to rally our community in support of equity and education. Adelsheim is a LIVE certified sustainable winery, a 2017 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Winery, and the official wine sponsor of the Portland Trail Blazers.


 
 

 
 

The idea that we would plant a grape variety that no one knew well in a place that nobody had ever heard of was not only remarkably naïve, it was a remarkable leap of faith.
