Willamette Valley wineries are known for two things: Great wine, and an incredible community.

We are lucky, in that, with all the chaos that’s happening in the world right now, great wine and an incredible community are exactly what we all need. To share that spirit with all of you, we created #WVCommunity.

Here will be highlighting fantastic offers, words of wisdom from our winemakers, Spotify playlists, recipes, and virtual events. And don’t miss our May Theme Weeks, where we’re highlighting 50 special wines on a theme for purchase every week as part of Memorial Weekend from Wine Country.

As our wineries very slowly reopen, be sure to check out our reopening guide to see the list of open tasting rooms and learn what to expect.

Harvest 2020 is starting up, and we want to celebrate that! We are counting down the days until we can begin picking our first grapes destined for our sparkling wines. 🍾

With these unprecedented times, it’s nice to know we’ll still have the #OregonWine we know and love. We will be partnering with some of our neighbors in the following weeks to #CelebrateOregonHarvest and provide food and clothing for families in need. #FeedOregon

Why is the “noir” lowercase in this (and only this) vintage of the Beaux Frères Vineyard portfolio?
~~~
Recently, a great friend of ours, Rich Schaefer (thewinewedrink), was enjoying this exact wine and sent along this question. According to Michael “The Dad” Etzel, our founding partner, the answer is shrouded slightly by time, given the nearly twenty years since the one-off decision was made.
~~~
He remembers being momentarily swayed by the rationale of none other than Papa Pinot himself, David Lett, whose eyrievineyards bottles presented (as they still do to this day) what many argue is the accurate grammatical spelling of the varietal. As for why this change only stuck for one vintage, the decision to return to the version we had traditionally used and continue to employ - “Pinot Noir” - seems to have been a purely aesthetic decision.
~~~
While an argument around grammar may be the last thing some of us want to pair with our Pinot, we’d love to hear some perspective from both sides of the aisle. Where does this debate stand today?

Let us introduce you to our most superb Hospitality Coordinator, Rachel Feiner, the resident rockstar of our virtual tasting program. Much like an in-person visit with Rachel at our winery, you never know what sort of creature might make a cameo, whether human or otherwise.

When it comes to the promise of Willamette Valley Chardonnay, consider us among the believers. Dyed in the wool, in fact. We are releasing these two wines into the world this month with great excitement, proudly contributing (we believe) to the rising tide of exquisite Willamette Valley Chardonnay. The renaissance is real, and in the words of our friends walterscottwines, “this is just the beginning.”⁣

Follow the link in our bio for tasting notes and details on getting these two wines in your cellar during our summer offering. Until Monday, purchase any 6+ bottles to receive $20 flat rate shipping via FedEx Priority Overnight delivery. ⁣

As we assess the air quality and overall safety of our guests and staff, we have decided to remain closed tomorrow (9/11). We are tentative for Saturday, and will be sure to update you promptly. ⠀

The good news, and most importantly, all of our staff is safe! Gina and Kelli, our Winemaker and Vineyard Manager, are adjusting picking schedules accordingly with the ever-changing conditions. We are hopeful to return to the vineyards soon, as it appears the weather may be improving as we head into the weekend. ⠀

Our hearts go out to everyone in our community who has been displaced and to our neighbors with vineyards in danger. We cannot thank our firefighters and first responders enough for protecting the Willamette Valley! We have added a link in our bio for updates and resources regarding the wildfires. Stay safe, and we hope you enjoy some #AdelsheimAtHome. 💙

Locked and loaded — after countless hours for our production team of tasting, testing, and talking it through, the blends for our 2019 vintage have revealed themselves. These are the staples of our portfolio, under cork for the very first time, just a sneak preview before the barrels are emptied into the blending tank next month.

We remember well the throes of that epic harvest, when we knew that wines of great depth and integrity would emerge if we dug our heels in and did the work. The proof is indeed beginning to emerge!

With over a month under our belts now, we’re still deeply humbled by the opportunity to share our wines and our winery with you during this unparalleled season of time. We offer our thanks to those who have come and abided by our abundance of caution, while we also offer our very best regards and understanding to those who are still unable to be with us. It’s a delicate dance, indeed. We hope our wines can remain a source of great joy and comfort in the still uncertain days and weeks ahead — cheers to you all!

In the 2014 vintage, we started a tradition of releasing a “super cuvée”, a collection of barrels that reflected the most exquisite expression of the vintage. The Cuvée ’59 became one of the more legendary releases from this winery, and set a very high bar for each subsequent submission in the series, including the newly-released addition from the 2018 vintage, The Giant. ⁣

Given the kindredness of the two vintages, Michael was inspired to take a pen and a pad and pop a Cuvée’59 from his cellar for the first time in a long while. From the notes, an exciting final draft emerged of a wine just starting to hit its stride: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“Beautiful crimson clarity with just a hint of brick. The wine has lost its baby fat and is now more terroir driven; the smell of earth/soil/iron. Great energy, still youthful but without any sharp edges. Rich yet balanced.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For those with a few of these in their cellar, another decade or more of development awaits. As for The Giant, the journey is just beginning, but our high expectations for its potential feel justified. The initial offer ends at midnight tonight; follow the link in our bio for more on the story. ⁣


Wishing all the dads a #HappyFathersDay — we hope you get the chance to open something just as special this evening!

An unparalleled growing season comes down to the home stretch. One last burst of color. A few more weeks of quiet transformation before Mother Nature delivers a 30th vintage from our flagship site. ⁣

This harvest will be different, no doubt. Stay tuned for an announcement this week about what that will look like around here. Until then, we invite you to watch and wait with us as another epic Oregon vintage emerges.⁣
