Bethel Heights Vineyard is an Oregon winery in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley. Founded in 1977 by twin brothers Ted and Terry Casteel, their wives Pat Dudley and Marilyn Webb, and Pat's sister Barbara Dudley, the vineyard was one of the earliest plantings in the Eola-Amity Hills region. A winery soon followed, with the first estate wines produced in 1984. Bethel Heights specializes in Pinot noir, offering several individual block and vineyard designated bottlings, but also produces wines made from Chardonnay, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, and Gewürztraminer.Take a look at our Salem vacation maker website to schedule your visit to Bethel Heights Vineyard and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Today, the winery is still owned by members of the Casteel-Dudley-Webb families. The winery has earned a reputation in the region as a pioneer in "sensible and sustainable" viticulture, with Ted Casteel being one of the co-founders of the Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) certification program in the state of Oregon. In 1997, Bethel Heights was one of the first vineyards in Oregon to be certified Salmon-Safe, and it is a member of the Oregon Certified Sustainable Wine (OCSW). In 2007, it was among the first Oregon wineries to join the Oregon Global Warming Commission and pledged to go carbon neutral by 2010.
Bethel Heights Vineyard reviews
The great thing about the Willamette Valley wineries is the tasting experiences they offer through reservations and a fee (which varies and can be substantial, though worth it). Bethel Heights... more »
This is by far one of my favorite vineyards in Oregon. They produce first class wines and the views from the tasting room are amazing. The staff is super knowledgeable and always very friendly. more »
Had an awesome tasting experience the other day with Kate. The wines were delicious and views of the property are exceptional. It’s cool to learn about the ways they’re managing the vineyards on site. I will definitely be recommending this winery
We stopped by to try the seasonal flight and were NOT disappointed!! The flight took us through 4 beautiful Pinot Noir, plot by plot approach, and finished on a truly great Chardonnay. As a French couple we are used to Burgundy and I was a bit afraid to taste the same mimicking style but hell no! This is definitely Oregon and we loved it! I highly recommend for: - the astonishing quality of the wines - the very warm welcome from the team and the very high quality of the service - cherry on the cake : amazing view from the terrace on the steep vineyard, this took the whole experience to another level. Brilliant!
