What was once a serious hobby evolved to a love and passion for fine wine. Pinot Noir was planted at our home in 1990. The 1995 vintage was the first release to the consumer as Fisher Family Cellars. ADEA (an acronym for members of the Fisher family—Ann, Dean, Erica and Adam) first labeled the 1998 vintage. With the 1995 through 1998 vintages produced at the Medici winery, the 1999 through 2001 was produced at the Lemelson winery.

In 2002 we moved to our Gaston location. ADEA is also a custom-crush, alternating premise winery facility. Focusing on production of wines of Oregon’s premium terroir, vineyards including the Fisher estate, Yamhill-Carlton District AVA, are selected for superior fruit to express the varying soils, elevations, clones and microclimates. Vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA, Chehalem Mountains AVA, McMinnville AVA and North Willamette Valley are extraordinary pieces to the ADEA brand. Close attention from harvest to bottle brings us to the goal in our winery.

Approximately 90% of the annual production is Pinot Noir with the remaining production limited to Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. Barrels of Pinot Noir are selected to specifically fit to the bottlings for Dean-o’s, Reserve, Ann Sigrid, Willamette Valley and vineyard-designated labels.

On the personal level, more of the family is involved on a day-to-day basis. Erica is the assistant winemaker to Dean, and the grandchildren, Ocean, Forest and Katulla, are becoming quite the helpers especially during harvest.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
