Vineyard makes Wine Spectator list
POLK COUNTY — Bethel Heights Vineyard, outside of West Salem, made Wine Spectator’s list of “30 Wineries to Discover,” published in the January/February edition of the magazine.
The Editor’s Picks feature divides wine regions in “New World” — Oregon, California, Washington, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand — and “Old World” — France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Austria.
The article focuses on wineries that authors’ believed are “underappreciated gems,” that are “wineries to trust, because these are producers that offer a broad range of wines that consistently deliver both excellence and affordability.”
Here’s Wine Spectator’s take on Bethel Heights, located at 6060 Bethel Heights Road NW, in Salem:
“The family-owned winery is an Oregon pioneer, founded in 1977, and all its wines are produced from estate-owned vineyards. Cousins and co-owners Ben and Mimi Casteel represent the second generation of the winery’s founding Casteel, Dudley and Webb families. Ben, the winemaker, pursues a light and delicate style, decidedly old-school, putting the emphasis on fruit flavors and intensity and delivering a marvelous sense of weightlessness in the wines.”
