Description: Chehalem boasts a rich history of innovation, sustainability, and exceptional quality. Known for our single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and a progressive approach to white wines, we firmly believe that outstanding wine should accompany every course of a meal.
First established in 1980, pioneering grape growing in the prestigious soils of the Ribbon Ridge AVA, today we have three unique estate vineyards planted in three distinct designated wine growing regions of the Willamette Valley AVA. Our sites and winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance and texture.
A staple of the Newberg wine scene since 1995, our Tasting Room is open seven-days a week in downtown Newberg while our winery and production facility sit a few miles up the road at our 35 year-old Corral Creek Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA.
Mature vineyards, mature winemaking, consistently great wines.
Origin of name: Chehalem (Chuh-hay-lum) is a local Calapooia Indian word best translated as “gentle land” or “valley of flowers,” phrases that capture a long-standing, almost religious reverence for the land that we honor by crafting wines with minimal processing to reflect what the vineyard has produced without compromising great fruit.
Fun Fact: Founder, Harry Peterson-Nedry planted the first vineyard ever in the Ribbon Ridge AVA – Ridgecrest.
