In 2014, Bradford Cowin in collaboration with his mother, Tana Mendes Bidwell decided to create a winery dedicated to hand crafting wines in the Pacific Northwest influenced by the wines of Europe. Paying homage to his grandfather and the family’s Portuguese ancestry, they named the winery Adega Northwest, (Portuguese for winery cellar).
Currently Adega Northwest is based out of Urban Crush Winery, a Co-op in Southeast Portland, Oregon.
