3 Reasons to Travel with David Adelsheim

Simply put, David is a pioneer of Oregon wine, one of the visionaries who, in the early 1970s, established Oregon as a world-class wine region. After living and studying in Burgundy, David returned to Oregon and planted 15 acres of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris in 1972 (1978 was the first commercial release). David hasn't looked back since! He has the heart of a pioneer and the head of a scientist. We love David for his optimist energy and endless curiosity – and his mastery of creating a perfectly textured glass of wine.

His Vision

Can you imagine Oregon’s Willamette Valley without its wines? Neither could David. His vision helped transform Oregon into one of the world's premiere winemaking regions.

His Roots

Pinot noir’s ancestral lands are in Burgundy, so is David’s sense of winemaking. On our trip we'll visit the places - and meet some of the people - who've inspired his approach to wine.

His Creativity

David’s always searching for something new. Or as he puts it, “nobody's planted any laurels around here to rest on. It's in our DNA always to ask what the next great challenge is going to be.”
