Villa Catalana Cellars is a small east Willamette Valley winery located thirty minutes south of Portland, Oregon between Canby and Oregon City. We are a small winery that produces less than 500 cases a year. We have attempted to combine our love of gardening and food and wine by creating our estate. Our home (and tasting room) was inspired by San Clemente de Tahull, a 12th-century Romanesque church in Catalonia, Spain. Our tasting room is also a rare plant conservatory where many unusual tropical plants flourish.
We search for small, speciality vineyards throughout the Pacific Northwest that produce high-quality grapes. Larger wineries often overlook these little vineyards because the quantity is so small. We find that oftentimes these small vineyards produce amazing fruit due to the combination of soil, microclimate and the extra attention small vineyards often receive from their owners. We will produce wine from our own vineyard when it matures, but we will always seek out other small growers of fine fruit. Good wine is made from good grapes and the best wine is made from the best grapes. Since we explore other viticultural areas besides the Willamette Valley, we are able to produce other wines other than cool-climate grapes like Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
