Tyee Wine Cellars
Tyee Wine Cellars is located on the scenic Buchanan Family Century Farm founded over 130 years ago in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley near Corvallis. Tyee founders, Dave and Margy Buchanan planted the first Tyee Estate wine grapes in 1974 and Tyee Wine Cellars first commercial vintage was in 1985. Today the family farm is operated cooperatively by fourth and fifth generation family farmers. The farm remains a diverse operation, with an estate vineyard and winery, tasting parlor and historic barn, events facility, hiking trails and picnic tables through hazelnut orchards, cathedral oak trees and Willamette Valley native woodlands and wetlands. Visitors to Tyee Wine Cellars are welcome to enjoy wine tasting and picnicking on our family farm and vineyard in a variety of scenic locations or hikes along Tyee's Beaver Pond Loop Nature Trail and conservation easement.
Tyee is a small, family owned and operated winery, with a limited production of 2000 cases annually. Tyee's Winemaker, Merrilee Buchanan Benson, is a fifth generation Willamette Valley farmer who grew up with the vines. She and her husband, Brian Benson, manage Tyee Estate Vineyard and the traditional winemaking process at Tyee to create Tyee Estate Pinot gris, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.
Tyee Estate Pinot Noir was rated 99 points, Oregon's #1 Best Wine by Portland Monthly Magazine in 2014 in a blind tasting of over 1000 wines by Portland's top sommeliers. We believe sharing Tyee Estate Wines with you is perhaps the most sublime expression of the land.
