This interview between David Adelsheim and Charley Coury of Charles Coury Winery is the second in a 10-part interview series entitled Founders’ Stories: Conversations with the 10 Founding Winemaking Families of Oregon’s North Willamette ValleyFounders’ Stories was produced by Adelsheim Vineyard to celebrate their 50th Anniversary.

Chuck and Shirley Coury came to Oregon around the same time as David Lett. Chuck and David had been at U.C. Davis during the 1962/63 school year and travelled together the next year in France. They shared a nursery planting near Corvallis, and both purchased land for their vineyards. David Adelsheim interviewed their son, Charley, at David Hill Winery near Forest Grove on October 16, 2020. They sat in the midst of vines planted by Charley’s father in 1966, when Chuck and Shirley owned this historic vineyard site.


Produced by Adelsheim Vineyard in partnership with Tucker Hamilton, Dane Sawyer, and Tristan Brillanceau-Lewis.
