Proprietors Earl and Hilda Jones, long admirers of fine Spanish Rioja wines, were curious why Tempranillo had never produced exciting wines in the New World, even after 100 years of cultivation in California. In this dichotomy they saw both a challenge and an opportunity, so, in the early 1990s they purchased 500 acres of rolling oak savannah in the Umpqua Valley AVA and established Abacela. The name comes from the Spanish/Portuguese word abacelar, which means to plant a grapevine. Today, Abacela is considered a modern era pioneer and leading producer of Tempranillo and other Iberian varietals in America.
The Joneses constructed a contemporary gravity-flow winery to satisfy their philosophy of minimal-intervention processing of ripe fruit into varietally correct reds and whites. All the wines reflect their terroir and are aromatic, flavorful and food friendly. Abacela pioneered Tempranillo and Albariño in the Pacific Northwest and also produces Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Dolcetto, Viognier, Muscat, Tannat, Tinta Amarela and Graciano .
Our Vine & Wine Center is open daily for wine tasting 11:00 am-5:00 pm November through April, 11:00 am-6:00 pm May through October. Closed New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
