Tyee Wine Cellars
The Tyee Wine Cellars is at the heart of family farming. They were first settled in 1854, with rich land and pastures raised by Buchanan ancestors that were embraced as their own for generations before being handed down to current-day farmers who continue this tradition today. The estate vineyards represent five generations since it was founded 85 years ago when Josephine first planted grapes on these same acres back then–just like how she is passing onto new bloodlines what has been treasured all along time. The family farm is a welcoming place for visitors to experience the Estate Vineyard and Winery in Southern Corvallis, where they can also enjoy wine tasting or an event. If you are looking for some time outside with nature, then try one of their many trails that wind through forest land.
The third generation of Buchanan’s raised cows to run a dairy and built an amazing parlor that still stands today. The fourth, Dave and Margy, with their children, have planted wine grapes in 1974 and hazelnuts- one row each. The fourth and fifth generations of family farmers continue to operate the farm in a way that retains its diverse operations. These include an estate vineyard, winery tasting room with historic barn events facility including hiking trails through hazelnut orchards and native woodlands and wetlands habitats for birds such locally- disturbance tolerant species like Oregon’s official bird The Douglas Fir Tree Warbler found only near streams within Willamette Valley.
While the wines are only available for a limited time, these sustainable and environmentally friendly methods will be used to produce them in an edition of 250 bottles. The tasting room is open on Friday through Sunday, with free tours every hour starting at noon. Tyee Wine Cellars is a family farm and vineyard in scenic locations that are perfect for visitors looking to enjoy wine tasting or picnicking.
