Choosing which vineyard's fruit to use was a no-brainer when crafting this lot. Calkins Lane Vineyard, home of our winery and tasting room, is beloved by all, and it's easy to see why. Gorgeous views, a beautiful pond, and the occasional horse all add to the charm of our headquarters. But don't get fooled; Calkins Lane offers much more than a pretty view and wildlife. We selected our favorite blocks to ensure that this beautifully crafted wine will evolve beautifully with time and provides this lot's winner with memorable experiences for years to come.

“This year’s auction lot comes from my absolute favorite section of our estate, Calkins Lane vineyard—a narrow 2-acre sliver that runs right along Calkins Lane itself. Whenever I walk through this part of the vineyard, I can’t help but wonder how excellent the soils are under that road and dream of a day when we get to find out. But for today, we can celebrate the riches we have and enjoy this wine in all its textural splendor.” Gina Hennen, Winemaker

Adelsheim wine is complex, elegant, and an authentic expression of Oregon, the Willamette Valley, and the richly diverse soils of the Chehalem Mountains.
