Explore, Tour & Taste!

More than 30 vineyard and winery members of the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers will participate in the third annual Explore, Tour & Taste!, a Labor Day weekend filled with special pre-harvest vineyard presentations, open houses and much more. In the hills from Newberg to Sherwood, Wilsonville to Hillsboro, including Ribbon Ridge and Parrett Mountain, wineries invite the public to visit, meet the winemakers and growers and join them for special events and wine tastings.

 The Chehalem Mountains AVA boasts the highest peaks in the Willamette Valley and three distinct soil types: volcanic, sedimentary and silt-blown Ice Age loess. According to Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers President David Adelsheim of Adelsheim Vineyard, “While we are best known for our Pinot Noirs, these diverse soils and vineyard meso-climates also provide a full palette of expression with Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and other cool-climate varieties. Explore, Tour & Taste takes wine enthusiasts beyond the finished wine, back to where and why it all happens so beautifully.”

This year’s participants include: A Blooming Hill Vineyard, Adelsheim, Alloro Vineyard, Anam Cara, Anne Amie, ArborBrook, Ardiri Winery, Artisanal Wine Cellars, Bergström, Carabella, Chehalem, Cooper Mountain, deLancelotti, Elk Cove, Et Fille, Freja, K&M Wines, Lachini, Laura Volkman, Longplay Wine, Ponzi , Privé, Quailhurst Vineyard Estate, Raptor Ridge, Redman, REX HILL, ROCO, Styring, Terra Vina Wines, Trisaetum, Utopia Wines and Vidon.
