Please ask us about our unique story; what led Earl and Hilda Jones to find an American location to produce fine varietal Tempranillo and Albariño wine? Abacela also produced the first varietal wines in the region from numerous other Old World wine varieties which are now grown all over Southern Oregon and Pacific Northwest.
The Vine & Wine Center was constructed with sustainability in mind; hence the open floor plan, the Bacchus Room’s clerestory (heat rise tower), the tunnel and Library Wine Cellar cave and of course, the geothermal heating and cooling system. We are proud of these green practices. Please ask about our Zoo-Doo compost for the vineyard soils... all of which lowers our carbon-footprint.
Our property, although a working farm, produces much more than just grapes. Our 150 year old Heritage Orchard still produces apples, pears and our bees produce our own “a-BEE-cela honey”.
*NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE*
Join us for a complimentary, behind the scenes tour of our Estate Vineyards and wine production facilities. Vineyard tours are best during the vines growing season, which begins in April and goes through October. If it is Winter, or if the Vineyard is muddy, we can guide you through our unique “Winegrower's Walk."
All winery tours start in the Vine & Wine Center, move through the barrel cellar, and conclude on the crush pad. Additionally, you can also be shown our ecological “green” geothermal heating and cooling system.
Tours are based on availability, so please call (541) 679-6642 with at least 24 hours notice to schedule. Please also allow a minimum of 30-45 minutes for a tour.
