Owner description: Abacela is a world-class, multi-award winning winery and viticulture success story. Founders Earl and Hilda Jones first planted in 1995 they had no way of knowing what the outcome would be. Abacela was an experiment they hoped would answer a question that had puzzled them for years: Why doesn't America produce any fine varietal Tempranillo wine? Earl and Hilda probably weren't the first enophiles to wonder why the great grape of Spain's famous Rioja wines was mysteriously absent from American fine wine. However they were the first to approach the question with scientific rigor, form a hypothesis and then devote their lives to testing it. Abacela is the result of one ordinary family's curiosity and determination that transformed their lives, built one of Oregon's best-loved wineries and influenced winegrowing not only in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, but across America.

If you like Spanish wines - this is your place. Earl and Hilda have gone to great lengths to make sure their pourings are excellent COmfy and elegant new tasting room (but I do miss the dog.). Try it, yo'all will come back.

Some really nice wines, though a bit pricey. Had a bottle with dinner last night, a Merlot, and it was very good. The winery's owners are very interesting people.
