Alexana Estate Vineyards and Winery was born of a chance meeting between veteran Oregon winemaker Lynn PennerAsh and Dr. Madaiah Revana, owner of Revana Family Vineyard in California’s Napa Valley. With the help of PennerAsh, Dr. Revana acquired the uniquely situated 80acre estate located on the Northwestern edge of the Dundee Hills AVA in the spring of 2005. This property’s unique composition of 18 various marine sedimentary and volcanic soil types make it the perfect place for Alexana to continue Revana’s commitment to producing exceptional estate grown wines. Each vineyard block of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay is individually cultivated in a celebration of the property’s diverse soils, clonal selections and microclimates using LIVE certified sustainable farming practices. In the cellar, Winemaker Bryan Weil carries out Penner-Ash’s minimalist approach to winemaking by focusing on small lot fermentations in a recently completed 3-story gravity flow winery. A Gold LEED-Certified tasting room is now open to the public daily and private tours are available by appointment.
Bethel Heights Vineyard is a family-owned and operated winery located in the historic Eola Hills northwest of Salem. Brothers Ted and Terry Casteel and their wives, Pat Dudley and Marilyn Webb, established the vineyard in 1977 and released their first wines in 1984. Over the past several years Bethel Heights has expanded to include second-generation leadership and ownership. Terry and Marilyn’s son, Ben Casteel, now helms the winemaking team, and Ted and Pat’s daughter, Mimi Casteel, is the general manager and viticulturist. Other family members are involved with various aspects of the business, truly making Bethel Heights a family affair. Planted between 1977 and 1979, Bethel Heights was one of the first vineyards in the Eola Hills. The estate vineyard encompasses 50 planted acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc, and the family also owns adjacent Justice Vineyard, planted between 1999 and 2001 to 20 acres of Pinot Noir. In 2008, the family purchased nearby Ingram Lane Vineyard, with 22 acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. The winery produces 13,000 cases of premium wine annually, specializing in own-rooted, old-vine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Aromatic white varieties including Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, and Grüner veltliner sourced from both the estate vineyard and other Oregon sites round out the Bethel Heights portfolio. The family is known for its generous service to the Oregon wine industry over the years. They have long demonstrated leadership in building sustainability and stewardship of the land into all aspects of growing grapes and making fine wine.
FOLLOW THE RABBIT TO FIND A PORTUGEUSE WINEMAKING LEGACY Portuguese wine has long been considered the best-kept secret of Europe. Winemaking techniques of Portugal have been influenced by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and originated with the Romans. Coelho Winery is proud to bring this long winemaking legacy to Amity, Oregon. COELHO (KOO-AL-yoo) Portuguese translation: Rabbit WINE ANCESTRY Dave’s father, Joe Coelho, best enjoyed wine surrounded by loved ones. A dairyman, Joe made Portuguese wine for family and friends, instilling a love and appreciation for the wine experience in Dave. Deolinda’s grandfather, José (Joe) Serpa was a carpenter who made wine in the family basement. Legend is that one of his kids siphoned wine for friends to enjoy. Finding the wine quite tasty, the boys were found the next morning, the siphon still in the barrel, sleeping on the basement floor bringing an end to Joe’s winemaking. THE COELHO FAMILY Today the Coelho family is involved in all aspects of Coelho wines. If Dave and Deolinda are not at Coelho Winery in downtown Amity, you can find them working at the vineyard, volunteering in the community, cooking large family dinners, passing on their passion for wine, or beating their children and grandchildren at cards. The Coelho children all play a part in Coelho Winery’s successes as well. Sons David and Samuel Coelho actively participate in the daily operations and management of the winery. David, head winemaker, joined the winery full-time in the summer of 2010, learning how to create premium wine from his parents. Samuel, director of marketing, sales, and brand development departments, joined the winery fulltime in 2009. His position takes him to all corners of the United States and world, as Coelho Winery increasingly becomes a symbol of premium Pinot Noir on an international level. Stephanie Johnson and Jeanne Coelho, the Coelho sisters, live outside the Willamette Valley, but continue to be valuable assets to the winery.
Paul and Eileen Gerrie established Cristom Vineyards in 1992. They had been attending the IPNC for years, and there developed a passion for Pinot Noir. Present from the beginning were winemaker Steve Doerner and vineyard manager Mark Feltz, both arriving with prior knowledge of Pinot Noir. The estate has 60 acres in vine, which are planted primarily to four distinct Pinot Noir vineyards named for Gerrie family matriarchs. Hallmarks of Cristomâ€™s winemaking are a large percentage of whole clusters, native yeast fermentation, and minimal handling throughout the winemaking process. Estate Pinot Gris, Estate Viognier and Estate Syrah make up the balance of their 13,000 case production.
Dobbes Family Estate is a dream come true for owner and winemaker, Joe Dobbes, and the embodiment of over 25 years of winemaking experience. Joe began his career apprenticing with wine masters in Germany and France, then applying his skills to crafting wine for several esteemed Oregon wineries. In 2002, Joe created Wine By Joe, LLC, a multi-tiered business that produces three brands: Dobbes Family Estate, Wine By Joe, and Jovino. Dobbes Family Estate promises wines of distinction that represent a true expression of the finest varietals in Oregon. The wines are handcrafted to exhibit unparalleled quality and sophistication by marrying the elements of Nature, Nurture, and Artistry. The winemaking objectives are to craft wines true to their varietal character with as much depth, richness, and flavor as possible without sacrificing balance and elegance. Dobbes Family Estate produces superb Pinot Noir and French-style Syrah. In addition to crafting a beautiful dry Viognier, Joe Dobbes is the first and only Oregon producer to bottle a 100 percent Grenache Blanc.
Located on Hwy 99W on the outskirts of Salem, Left Coast Cellars produces award-winning, estate-grown Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Viognier with a focus on sustainability, ranging from solar power to organic farming.

Mahonia Vineyard is a sustainably farmed, family-owned vineyard located in the Willamette Valley foothills south of Salem, Oregon. For over 25 years, they have specialized in producing high quality Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay wine grapes which are sold to some of the most celebrated winemakers in the Willamette Valley. Each year, they hold back a few tons of their best fruit and work with local winemaker Chris Berg (Roots Wine & Vineyard) in order to create limited bottlings of ‘honest wine’–wine that represents the unique habitat of their vineyard site; their values; and their commitment to producing high quality wines at affordable prices. They generate solar power, use locally produced biodiesel, are Salmon Safe and LIVE Certified, and were one of the first vineyards in Oregon to become Carbon Neutral. Their definition of profit includes giving back to Oregon communities, especially through programs benefitting children such as Family Building Blocks, and those benefitting the environment such as SOLV.
Making great Pinot Noir is a labor of love - and can be a difficult process. The right clones have to grow in the right location with the right climate. The wine must be made in the style that allows the grapes to express the qualities of the site and soil. Redhawk strives to produce expressive and refined wines that speak to the quality and nuance of vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. Redhawk Winery is a family affair, and tasting is always fun and informal. Redhawk strives to produce small quantities of outstanding yet reasonablly priced wines. They grow premium quality Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Dolcetto and Riesling, and have other varietals available for tasting and purchase. Enjoy wine tasting, take in the breathtaking view of the Valley, or picnic in the park. Redhawk welcomes visitors to their tasting room 11-5 daily - year round. â€œCome share this beautiful setting with us.â€? - John & Betty Pataccoli, Redhawk Owners
Sineann, with winemaker Peter Rosback, is a small producer of highly intense wine in Yamhill County, Oregon. Sineann sources fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge. Sineann has even started making wine from the Napa Valley. Their growers have great pride in the grapes they provide. Almost all the wines are vineyard designated. No expense is spared in the pursuit of great wine. Crop levels are kept very low, one to three tons per acre. Winemaking is meticulous. All fruit is hand-sorted, delicately de-stemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity-racked. The wines are aged in new and one-year old French oak. The bottom line is, Sineann strives to make great wine. Itâ€™s the only kind of wine that makes it onto their dinner table. Itâ€™s exciting to make and gratifying to share. They believe that food and drink, lovingly prepared, make for happier and healthier people.
St. Innocent was founded in 1988 by its winemaker and president, Mark Vlossak. They produce small lots of handmade, vineyard-designated wine from some of the best sites in the Willamette Valley. Since their founding, they have grown from 600 cases that first year to a current production of 8-10,000 cases, yet each wine is still handcrafted in the very same manner. Year after year, St. Innocent Winery has received recognition from throughout the country and around the world for its outstanding Pinot Noir, beautifully-crafted white wines, and fair pricing. Mark’s raison d’etre is to produce wines that reflect their terroir, the specific qualities of the vintage, and his vision of wine’s place in life: to complement and extend the pleasure of food. To accomplish his goal, he picks fully ripe fruit at the point of maximum complexity and ferments the fruit to extract the exact balance of flavor and tannins desired. This produces wines that display their unique fruit character as well as secondary flavors specific to the terroir of the site: spice, pepper, mushroom, earth, etc. The result is wines with higher acid levels and diverse yet harmonizing flavors.
Trinity is a small familyowned and operated vineyard and tasting room located in the historic Jory Hills South of Salem. Steve and Cindy Parker along with their daughter Kristen established the vineyard in 1998 and planted it all in three different clones of Pinot Noir, hence the name Trinity. The first wines were released in 2006, which included our 2004 Estate Pinot Noir and 2004 Pinot Gris. Producing only about a thousand cases a year allows Trinity the opportunity to focus on small batch, handcrafted wines that are true to their varietal characteristics. Farming the densely planted vineyard by hand, and utilizing sustainable lowâ€“impact farming practices, along with the red clay volcanic soils predominate in the area, produce some beautifully rich and complex fruit. In addition to Pinot Noir, fruit is sourced from Washington State to produce Viognier, Grenache and Sangiovese.
Willamette Valley Vineyards has been producing high quality, sustainably grown Pinot Noir and other coolclimate varieties since 1983 – earning the distinction as “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and “2011 Winery of the Year” from Wine & Spirits Magazine. Willamette Valley Vineyard’s mission is to create elegant, classic Oregon wines from the Willamette Valley Appellation while serving as stewards of the land. Founder Jim Bernau believes we are rewarded with wines that taste better when made from naturally grown wine grapes. Tending the vines by hand and using minimalist winemaking techniques in small-batch fermentations, they strive to capture the unique sense of place that comes from their soils. They were the first to use natural cork in their bottles certified by the Rainforest Alliance to Forest Stewardship Council standards and offer 10 cents for any wine bottle returned to the tasting room for recycling. To reduce their carbon footprint, all company tractors and delivery vehicles run on biofuel – and they offer up to 50 gallons a month free to employees for commuting to work. Willamette Valley Vineyards wines have been served at the White House, the James Beard House, and they are available at some the finest restaurants and wine shops throughout the world.
Meet Dad, Lee, along with sons, Mike, Nick, and Matt. The Radtke’s have called Salem ‘home’ for decades so it only made sense to make their dream of building a microbrewery happen in the heart of the city. With what began in 2005 as three brothers home-brewing at the family residence, turned into so much more. Before they knew it, they were needing larger and more equipment. That’s when Lee decided to jump in. The art of being a designer craftsman has run in the family, generation after generation; especially in metalwork. So when the brothers needed a larger masher, Lee built one for them. This continued until 2009 when they had decided to establish Gilgamesh Brewing. With help from family and friends alike, Lee, Mike, Nick, and Matt have successfully built what is now called Gilgamesh- The Campus. The Campus is home to a new full-service and family-friendly restaurant pub with the beloved and much larger brewery attached. When you enter you will notice that the majority of the metal fabrication and woodwork that you see was handcrafted by the owners. The restaurant also keeps many products local. For example, you will only find locally distilled spirits and wine. Within the last several months Gilgamesh Brewing has begun their newest adventure- bottling. You can find 22oz bottles of Mamba, Oedupis IPA, Vader and Hopscotch at many of your local grocery stores and bottle shops.

The 2011 Paciência Pinot Noir comes out of the glass with a nose of eucalyptus and herbs coupled with dark red berry, blackberry and boysenberry. The front of the palate starts off with light cherry and pomegranate, transitioning into a mild herb mid-palate, and finishing with earthy notes.

This traditional blend of Portuguese varietals represents the heart and soul of Coelho. This is a bright, ruby colored wine that permeates with dark cherry, ripe raspberry and sweet herb aromas.

2011 Cristom Vineyards Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
Sourced primarily from the four estate Pinot Noir vineyards, Sommers Reserve is crafted in the same style as the single-vineyard wines. It is an elegant combined expression of the Cristom estate Pinot Noir vineyards, with complexity added by small amounts of fruit from top sites in the Willamette Valley. Sommers Reserve was known as ‘Cristom Reserve’ until 2004, when Paul added ‘Sommers’ to honor his paternal grandmother, Jessie Sommers.

The volcanic soils are predominantly of the Ritner type. It is the lowest elevation hillside vineyard. Curiously, the parking lot block of Louise is often the first vineyard to be harvested at Cristom and the upper block of Louise is often harvested last because it lies in a sun shadow just below the woodland on their hillside.
2012 Cristom Vineyards Estate Viognier
Viognier was planted at Cristom in 1993—making it among—if not, the oldest Viognier plantings in the Willamette Valley. Fermented in a combination of neutral barrels and stainless steel barrels, this 4 acre vineyard produces a restrained style of Viognier that has varietal character but is more ‘racy’ than most domestic Viognier.

An ample acid thread ties the whole package together and provides excellent direction to successful ageing which will integrate tannins, soften structure and calmly weave oak and fruit.

2012 St. Innocent Winery Freedom Hill Chardonnay
The 2012 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has a detailed and focused nose of apples and pears with spice and ripe citrus notes. Fresh stone fruit flavors are balanced by bright acidity and layers of stoniness - both river stones and the “stone” of a peach. These flavors extend across the palate and the minerality broadens into the finish. The combination of layered fruit, length, and complex undercurrent of minerality makes it a good match for richer white meat dishes. Match with rich fishes, wild birds, risottos and cheeses. Drinkable at release, it will develop over 8 years.
2012 St. Innocent Winery Villages Cuvée Pinot Noir
The 2012 Villages Cuvée Pinot Noir reflects the signature of Oregon’s 2012 vintage: very full-flavored, texturally rich wines that have immediate appeal as well as the structure to age. The percentage of fruit from Vitae Springs Vineyard increased in 2012 giving it a broader signature of red fruits with a fresh, juicy acidity. It has a nose rich with red and dark fruit, spices, and dark flowers. It is layered in the mouth with sweet cherry and red berry flavors with pepper, spice, and dark floral notes. The Villages Cuvée will benefit from being opened and decanted for 1-2 hours. Bottled in September 2013, it is very approachable now and can be aged up to 6 years to gain complexity. Its freshness and depth of flavor make it a great match for a wide variety of medium-flavored preparations.

135 Liberty Street N. â€˘ Salem, Oregon amadeuscafeinc.com Diana Ramallo fell into the world of food quite by accident. A professional kitchen was not where she thought she would end up but itâ€™s twenty years later and she is still enjoying being a chef. For Diana, food is a creative process but also an expression and offering of love. It is a way of using different ingredients creatively to produce something that tastes amazing but also makes the recipient come away with a feeling of having been nurtured. Diana has always had an intuitive sense about flavor profiles and the way in which they best come together and had them further honed by a classical culinary education. For the western world, a basis in French culinary techniques is the jumping off point for creative composition and while her menu at the Amadeus is considered eclectic, it employs much of what is good and true about French cuisine; fresh ingredients, locally sourced, cooked upon order. A la minute cooking (cooked upon order) is de riguer at Amadeus and while it may take a little longer the results in terms of freshness of flavor are well worth it.
2065 Madrona Ave. SE • Salem, Oregon gilgameshbrewing.com Chef Ashton Gentzler grew up in the Willamette Valley’s farm region surrounded by quality meats and produce. He learned to keep things simple and use fresh ingredients from the garden by cooking with his grandmother. His grandmother’s love of preserving, sausage making and “Farm to Fork” style food stuck with him from an early age. This early experience in the kitchen inspired him to attend the International Culinary School in Seattle, Washington. He has worked and learned from accomplished chefs in Seattle, including Le Pichet and Restaurant Zoe. He learned many classical and new school cooking techniques during this time. Ashton returned to the Willamette Valley and his family farm and began working at The Campus at Gilgamesh Brewing. Working with Gilgamesh Brewing has given him the opportunity to showcase his love of local ingredients. Creating simple, yet fun food and this time- beer is in the mix. Gilgamesh Brewing is determined to get their hands on some of the best local ingredients, as well as using family-run businesses. This means local bakers, meats, farms and purveyors are found all over their menu. With a love of beer and food, returning to the Willamette Valley was Chef Ashton’s best idea yet.

6 Our 2014 Commemorative Painting by Jon Jay Cruson Artist Jon Jay Cruson was raised in the Sacramento Valley of California in a small agricultural community- an inspiring landscape for a burgeoning artist. He moved to Oregon to attend school, graduating from the University of Oregon with a Master in Fine Arts Degree. This led to a teaching career at his alma mater, as well as Oregon State University and Treasure Valley Community College. Jon retired from teaching to pursue painting and printmaking full time, becoming the renowned artist we recognize today. His paintings grace the Ford Collection and Chrysler Collection and as far as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and private collectors in Italy and Japan. In Salem, you can find his work at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery. This is your opportunity to add an internationally known artist’s piece to your own personal collection with Landscape #2. Our commemorative painting reflects Cruson’s love of the landscape. His use of acrylic in a bold and direct manner is appealing yet comfortable to the eye. He arouses your sense of remembrance. With the use of flat color juxtaposed to pattern and textures, he created a superlative dynamic. Framed size is 41 ½” W by 31 ½”H.

The experience will begin with John and Coleen Van Dreal visiting your home to discuss the direction your artwork will take in relationship to your home’s interior. The diptych, composed of two canvases, can be hung together or separately. You will be consulted as John continues through the process of composing and painting your new masterpiece. Your artistic apprenticeship will be celebrated in the Van Dreal’s studio with servings of fine Oregon wines and Willamette Valley Cheese as you assist John with the final brush strokes of the painting. The final piece is an actual collaboration, signed by the artist and you, the apprentice.
