By Appointment Only
The story of Chehalem is rooted in a deep and abiding reverence for the land. From the vineyards we nurture and harvest to the wine we blend and age – we handle every step with respect to our fruit and an unwavering standard of sustainable practices. We consider ourselves a vineyard winery. We aim to reflect what the vineyard has produced, purely, with minimal processing and without compromising great fruit.
Founded in 1990 with the inaugural Pinot Noir harvest at Ridgecrest Vineyard, Bill Stoller joined as co-owner in 1993 as those wines were releasing. He subsequently purchased his family farmlands at the southern tip of the Dundee with the vision of planting it as our second estate vineyard. In 1995, we purchased Corral Creek, the vineyard surrounding the winery. It became our third estate vineyard.
Known for our single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and a progressive approach to white wines, we firmly believe that outstanding wine should accompany every course of a meal. Our climate and winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance, and texture.
Call us crazy, but our objective is to blaze a trail towards a future that is stimulating, exciting, and beautiful—such as it must have been generations ago for the Calapooia, overlooking our “valley of flowers.” For more information, visit chehalemwines.com/tasting-room/.
