Willamette Valley – Adelsheim Vineyard

https://www.adelsheim.com/about-us/vineyards/

Most of Adelsheim’s eleven estate vineyards are on the Chehalem Mountains (pronounced “Sha-HAY-lem”), now a highly-respected viticultural area within Oregon’s north Willamette Valley. Our history is closely tied to this area. We planted our original vineyard here in 1972 and ours was the first winery in these mountains.

All the small AVAs recently created in the north Willamette Valley are different. And yet, when viewed on a broader perspective, the wines from the hundreds of sites in the Valley share certain characteristics – they have an intensity of fresh fruit aromas, there is a backbone of acidity which, combined with round, structural tannins, gives these wines liveliness and age ability.  Even the Willamette Valley, a very large AVA already, shares certain things with the rest of Oregon. Interestingly, those things are less about climate and soil and more about people.
