Magic in the Mountains, a Chehalem Mountains AVA Tasting
On June 4th, join us where the magic begins in the Chehalem Mountains!
At the gateway to Oregon’s prestigious Willamette Valley wine growing region, just 35 minutes from Portland, you’ll discover wines produced by 26 highly acclaimed wineries paired with food bites from 4 incredible purveyors during a fun afternoon at the Allison Inn and Spa.
Magic in the Mountains is hosted by the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers Association in partnership with the Allison Inn & Spa.
About the Chehalem Mountains AVA: The contiguous land mass known as the Chehalem (pronounced “Sha-HAY-lum”) Mountains is home to an estimated 150 vineyards. With an average size of 12.5 acres, this patchwork of small, family-owned vineyards on varying soil types and elevations from 200 to well over 1000 feet above sea level is an exciting source for exquisite wines.
The Chehalem Mountains American Viticultural Area includes two nested wine growing regions gaining independent recognition for their wines – the distinctive Ribbon Ridge AVA and the Laurelwood District AVA. In due course, as vineyard plantings intensify and more wineries unfold, it is likely that other regions will emerge as AVAs within the boundaries of the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA.
