Breaking Ground Pinot Noir - 2016
Soft and dreamy as parachute silk. A masterful look at the Chehalem Mountains AVA from the winery that invented it. 

For a winemaker, single-vineyard wines can be straight-forward affairs, while appellation designates require hard decisions and sacrifices, and, above all, a point of view. Breaking Ground is Adelsheim’s tribute to the Chehalem Mountains, the AVA that the winery pioneered back in the 1970s. This adds a certain pressure, and Gina, who shares David Adelsheim’s individualist spirit, has risen to the challenge, offering an illuminating depiction of the winery’s home turf. The grapes were sourced from 11 separate hillside sites, most of which the winery owns and farms organically.
