Gina Hennen, Winemaker

“Wine grapes can express the location they’re grown in provided the place has something to say, and we believe our small corner of the Willamette Valley has a lot to say.”

founder & director

david adelsheim

David Adelsheim is the director of Adelsheim Vineyard, which he founded with Ginny Adelsheim in 1971. In the course of his company’s 46-year history, he has been the vineyard manager, winemaker, and the person in charge of sales, marketing, accounting, and fixing broken plumbing. His early winemaking experience included work at the experimental winery of the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, France, and at The Eyrie Vineyards in Oregon.

David Adelsheim, Founder & Director

“In the beginning, in the 1970s, we needed to focus on learning to make consistently decent wine. As the Willamette Valley was able to draw on more training and expertise in the 80s and 90s, producing world-class Pinots became the goal. Now, our conversations are all about the distinctions of place—what should a great Pinot from this particular vineyard taste like?”




ginny adelsheim

Ginny Adelsheim co-founded Adelsheim Vineyard in 1971. She is the artist responsible for Adelsheim Vineyard’s acclaimed series of label drawings, and for the winery’s terra-cotta ornamentation.

Ginny Adelsheim, Founder

Ginny is the artist behind all their wine labels, each featuring a different strong woman who is important to the Adelsheim family.




jack & lynn loacker

Jack and Lynn Loacker became co-owners with David and Ginny Adelsheim in 1994, and purchased full interest in the winery in 2017. Their long-time enthusiasm for wine and vision of producing wines of exceptional quality in Oregon led them to purchase two important Adelsheim estate vineyard sites: Ribbon Springs in the Ribbon Ridge AVA (125-acre site planted in 1995 with Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Auxerrois) and Boulder Bluff in the Chehalem Mountains AVA (15-acre site planted in 2003 with Pinot noir and Chardonnay). 

Jack & Lynn Lacker, Owners

“Over 20 years ago, we made a commitment to Adelsheim Vineyard and became partners with David and Ginny. We all agree that keeping the winery in the hands of local owners should be the future of Adelsheim Vineyard. It is an honor for us to ensure that David’s vision and legacy continue.”
