Overview

Abacela is a world-class, multi-award winning winery and viticulture success story. 21 years ago when founders Earl and Hilda Jones planted its first vines they had no way of knowing what the outcome would be. They were scientists with zero winemaking experience who left secure careers and trekked 2700 miles west, kids in tow, to test a hypothesis. 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.

Went to Abacela on our first wine tour visit of Oregon. They refused our service because we were to excited and bubbly - appearing drunk and tipsy. Totally unprofessional and disrespectful. We were going to spend good money and ready to have a nice time....More

We stopped at this winery to give it a try and the server was Jeff and he was outstanding. He is knowledgeable, professional and has a great sense of wine and humor.

This is probably the most professional winery in the Umpqua Valley. Good parking, nice view, nice bunch of wines, knowledgeable people in the tasting room, and some nice, light, food selections. It is certainly worth a visit

Best across the board vineyard we tried in southern Oregon. Could have bought every bottle we tasted and we are very picky. $10 per rating but worth it.
