Tyee Wine Cellars is located on the scenic Buchanan Family Century Farm founded over 125 years ago in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Five family generations have revered the farm's open spaces, woodlands, wetlands and streams while growing crops in a sustainable manner.  The Buchanan family first planted winegrapes in 1974 and started Tyee Wine Cellars in 1985. The Buchanans also grow hazelnuts.  Merrilee Buchanan Benson, Tyee's Winemaker and Vineyard Manager, grew up with the vines and winery. Tyee Wine Cellars remains a small family operation with much personal attention given to the vines and winemaking.


In addition to tasting Tyee Estate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer, visitors to Tyee enjoy picnicking, hiking and seeing beautiful, historic farmland and Willamette Valley native plants, birds and animals. Tyee's Estate Vineyard is Certified Salmon-Safe and farmed using organic compost and cover crops. Tyee Wine Cellars is 100% Solar-Powered.
