Adelsheim is one of the “founding fathers” of the Oregon wine industry. Owner David Adelsheim has played a pivotal role in transitioning Oregon Wine from a hobbyist cottage industry to a world-class wine producing region. His Vineyards were the first in the area that would eventually become the Chehalem Mountains AVA. In fact, David was the one who personally scouted the geography and drew the boundary lines for the AVAs of the Willamette Valley – thus making important distinctions between these incredibly diverse micro-regions.
The Bryan Creek Vineyard was planted in the Chehalem Mountains in 1989 at 700+ ft. of elevation. This cool climate site produces wines of elegance and bracing acidity. This scenario is well-suited for producing wonderfully structured Alsatian-style Pinot Blanc.
From the winery:
This 2015 Pinot blanc shows minerality and features stone fruit, tropical and floral aromatics, augmented by a firm, textured palate. It pairs superbly with a wide range of foods- from shellfish to quiche to spicy Asian food.
