In the Community
We believe every business has a responsibility to its employees, the local community and its products. Since inception, Chehalem Winery emphasized being a leader in its community. More than 30 percent of spending is with local vendors within 50 miles of the winery. Chehalem pays a living wage and provides a comprehensive compensation package to all full-time staff. Leadership is spread equally among men and women across every department, and all employees are encouraged to take advantage of continuing education opportunities. Our efforts culminated in July 2018 when we became the sixth Oregon winery to achieve B Corp certification, which assesses companies to ensure they meet the highest standard of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
“What I appreciate about B Corp certification is that it reinforces our practices and serves as a North Star for our business to advance our goals.” – Bill Stoller
Chehalem is also a proud supporter of ¡SALUD!, a Pinot Noir auction supporting a unique non-profit collaboration between wineries and healthcare professionals that raises money to provide access to healthcare services for Oregon’s seasonal vineyard workers and their families.
