Terrapin Cellars is dedicated to offering high quality wines to you at affordable prices.  The unique flavors of the Willamette Valley combine with experienced grape growing and a hands off approach to winemaking to bring a delightful wine tasting experience to your table.

Terrapin Cellars began modestly in 2000 when we purchased Pinot Gris grapes and produced 97 cases of wine. The following year we added Pinot Noir and in 2004 we started making a port style wine from Tempranillo grapes. As owners and operators of a vineyard management company we nurture the vines throughout the year. This offers us a unique perspective to really know the fruit from each vineyard and see its undiscovered potential.
The Willamette Valley is an ideal region for cool climate varietals like Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris because of the long growing season, the soils and abundance of excellent vineyard sites. We employ sustainable viticulture practices that grow the best possible grapes on each site we manage. The grapes used in our wines come from several of these sites which can vary from vintage to vintage.
Our philosophy in the winery is minimal intervention to preserve the unique blend of grapes that come from the vineyards we manage. Ultimately, we strive to produce outstanding, value priced wine that can be enjoyed on special occasions or in a casual setting with friends and family.

2018 Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley

The grapes come from three vineyards that we manage in the Eola Amity Hills AVA near Salem, Oregon. The wine was aged in 10% new oak. It is smooth, silky and well balanced. Dark cherry and warm spices on the nose with loads of fruit on the palate along with a hint of earthiness. The fine tannins and pleasing acidity lead to a smooth finish.

This well balanced, palate filling wine has enticing aromas of honeysuckle, Asian pear and baked apple. Well weighted and supported by perfectly integrated acidity, it fills the mouth with an array of fruit flavors including creamy lemon, pear and dried mango leading to a long satisfying finish.

10 Year Tawny Port Style
(375ml bottle)

Single Barrel Tawny Dessert Wine

This port style wine is made from Tempranillo grapes grown in the Willamette Valley. In 2011 we received the Tempranillo grapes on November 2nd. The wine was aged in neutral oak for just over 10 years. In Portugal they refer to this style of port as a Colheita, meaning tawny port from a single vintage.

This port style wine has done all its aging in the barrel and will not improve with bottle age. In order to enjoy this port style wine at its best it should be enjoyed within the next year or two.

The orange-tinged amber color denotes the age of this 10-year-old tawny port style wine. The nose shows an array of dried fruit with caramel overtones. A mature concentrated palate with full honeyed fruit and toasted toffee produces intense and lingering flavors.

Classic pairings with this wine are stilton cheese, dark chocolate and toasted walnuts.
2021 Rose’ of Tempranillo
Willamette Valley

The Tempranillo grapes were grown in the Eola-Amity Hills located in the Willamette Valley. A mouthwatering rose’ with lovely floral notes and a hint of pear on the nose leads to flavors of cranberry, brewed tea, berry fruit and grapefruit on the finish. The vibrant acidity balanced with a roundness on the palate makes for a satisfying finish.
