our values


Every member of our organization is committed to treading lightly on the earth so that our vineyards, our wines, and our people will be around for as long as our wines are in demand.

We also support social, educational, and arts organizations that enrich, celebrate, and strengthen our community.

Chickens Walking Through Adelsheim Vineyard

Adelsheim’s winery and estate vineyards are LIVE-Certified Sustainable and Salmon Safe.

What is LIVE?

LIVE was formed in 1995 by a group of winegrowers from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. In 1999 LIVE was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

LIVE uses a comprehensive set of rigorously applied, science-based standards and procedures that ensure both wine grape farming (viticulture) and wine making production (enology) are as sustainable and have as minimal an environmental impact as possible.

LIVE members must complete a series of reporting requirements each year that confirm their compliance with LIVE standards.

LIVE wines are independently certified to meet strict international standards for environmentally and socially responsible grape growing and winemaking in the Pacific Northwest. LIVE certification is one of the most authoritative sustainability accreditations in the wine world.

Salmon Safe works in partnership with LIVE.
