In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

After Dave and Deolinda fell in love with the rolling hills of the lush Willamette Valley, they moved to Amity in 1991 and transformed 40 acres 3 miles south of Amity into the renowned Coelho Estate Vineyard. They decided that they wanted to do more than simply sell their fruit, and began to utilize their Portuguese winemaking heritage. In 2004, they bottled their first vintage of “Paciencia.”
Coelho uses sustainable viticulture practices, hand picking, and hand sorting to reflect our respect for the unique Willamette Valley terroir.
The Coelho Winery emerged from a fire-damaged hardware store located in Amity, Oregon. In 2003, Dave and Deolinda fell in love with the unique building, filled with charcoaled ceiling beams, doors, recycled wood, and lots of character. The Coelho family renovated the vacant building, enlisting the help of a local craftsman to build the large table, bar and other shelves that furnish the tasting room from the wood that survived the fire. Old floor boards from a 1920s granary were incorporated into the design, and the existing doors were saved and refurnished in a nod of respect to the building’s history.
The result of this hard work became Coelho’s Oregon winery, an ideal place to craft premium Oregon wines. The winery comes complete with a state-of-the-art processing room, temperature and humidity controlled barrel room, and an inviting wine tasting room for our guests, so the family never has to go far for their wine, or the comfort of their patrons.
Within our large tasting room, we have created a relaxing and welcoming environment in which you can enjoy our premium handcrafted wines.
