On Calkins Lane at the edge of the Chehalem Mountains in Oregon's Willamette Valley, a beautifully tended 23-acre vineyard stands next to the pretty Bergström winery, where Josh Bergström makes some of the best wines in Oregon. The biodynamically farmed vines belong to Paul de Lancellotti and his wife, Kendall Bergström-de Lancellotti, who is Josh Bergström's sister. In the winery, Bergström has been making the wines from this vineyard, most going into a single-vineyard bottling for Bergström Wines, some for de Lancellotti's own bottling.
It was all looking so cozy, but behind the scenes there were family tensions that have resulted in wrenching changes for both wineries and for the Inn at Red Hills, which had been started and managed by Kendall.
