Winemaker’s Notes

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. Gewürztraminer vines were planted starting in the 1980's in Tyee's Estate Vineyard. Five family generations have revered the farm's open spaces, woodlands, wetlands and streams while growing crops in a sustainable manner.

Located a mile and a half from Tyee Wine Cellars with vines planted on their own roots in the 1980's, Tyee has a long term contract for old vine Gewürztraminer from Mary's Peak Vineyard
