Adelsheim began in 1971 as Chehalem Mountains’ first vineyard. Although the vineyard has grown since then, it has not lost its desire to remain true to its people and processes. You can expect eco-friendly winemaking paired with genuine, family-style service with a visit to Adelsheim.

The Painted Lady has made Gerry Frank’s Top 10 Oregon Restaurants and has consistently earned features in The Oregonian. Venture beyond the white picket fence during your next visit for some of the most exquisite cuisine around.
