The Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers represents vineyards, wineries and their associates in the Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountains AVAs (American Viticultural Areas), joined by a love of fine wine…and the terrain, elevation and climate within the boundaries of a single geological miracle.
Many of our members will be open Thanksgiving weekend - some will offer an opportunity to taste barrel samples, others will be serving food from top caterers, and others will be opening library wines or offering new releases. Many will be collecting food or donations for those in need. Get out and taste with the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers!
Meet the Characters behind the wines
From Parrett Mountain to the south, and running northwest across Bald Peak and Ribbon Ridge, the Chehalem Mountains were formed by uplifted sedimentary seabeds, lava flows, and wind-blown silt to create the highest elevations and most diverse soils in wine country. These distinctions make our winegrowing region famous for rich, elegant and complex wines including benchmark pinot noir.
With beautiful vineyards, eclectic tasting rooms, farm-to-table restaurants and other northwest cultural and recreational places of interest just a short drive from Portland, the Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge offer something for everyone.
Come taste and explore what makes the Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge unique!
