Tyee Estate Vineyard
Tyee Wine Cellars is located on our Family Farm founded over 130 years ago in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Chardonnay vines were planted thoughout the 1980's in Tyee's Estate Vineyard. These old vines of Chardonnay are dry-farmed on their own roots. Five family generations have revered the farm's open spaces, woodlands, wetlands and streams while growing crops in a sustainable manner. Good wines remember the grapes of their origin. We believe sharing Tyee Estate wines with you is perhaps the most sublime expression of the land.
