This interview between David Adelsheim and Myron Redford of Amity Vineyards is the seventh 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.

Fresh out of college in the summer of 1966, Myron Redford and a couple of friends found themselves hitchhiking from Istanbul to London. They ended up in Bulgaria, looking for a hostel. Did I mention that Myron had an ulcer and had been told, no alcohol. But their guide was pouring shots of slivovitz and “no thanks” wasn’t going to work. The next morning, after a long night of slivovitz shots, Myron was fine. So much for the no alcohol policy. On October 7, 2020, we caught up with Myron at Amity Vineyards, overlooking the original vineyard he purchased from Jerry and Ann Preston in 1974.


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