Illahe 1899 Expedition

Join us at Carmella's Wine's on Monday, July 25th.

Trade only tasting from 1:30-3:00, and a public tasting from 3:00-5:00.

We will be tasting the 1899 Pinot Noir along with our other current releases after it makes the journey by canoe to Portland.

With a goal of creating a new-world wine with a true sense of place
that wasn’t altered by technology, this special Pinot Noir was made without the use of modern wine-making equipment or electricity.

On the weekend of July 23rd we will embark on a three day journey to deliver this wine to our distributor, Casa Bruno, in Portland by stagecoach, bicycle, and canoe.

We are officially open for summer! Come visit us on weekends!


You can also email Louisa Woodworth, Tasting Room Manager to schedule an appointment:louisa@illahevineyards.com.

We do our best to honor all requests, but sometimes we are busy making wine or out of town.  

$10 tasting fee *tasting fee refunded with a $50 purchase. Free for Club Members

At Illahe, our goal is to make wine as naturally as possible from the soil to the bottle. This requires working by hand on small lots with age-old techniques and materials.

 Our focus is to make and grow quality pinot noir and white wines that express the vintage and their varietal characteristics. We don't use enzymes or additives, and we don't fine or filter our pinot noir. Some of our lots are made entirely by hand with no electricity or mechanization. We use a gentle wooden basket press, and age our pinot noir in French and Oregon oak.

 Of course, quality wine starts with quality fruit in the vineyard. Our 80-acre, south-facing vineyard lives in shallow clay soils. Like our friends in the Deep Roots Coalition, we do not irrigate mature plants. As one of Oregon’s few horse-powered vineyards, we utilize a team of Percheron drafts to mow and deliver grapes to the winery at harvest.
