The second vintage of this wonderful creation from the mind of Barnaby Tuttle. A white wine blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Dry and delicious and perfect with trout or any seafood. The fruit comes from Washington and Oregon vineyards.
A new wine from Teutonic, a Red Pinot Gris. Yes, weeks of skin contact to create a Red Pinot Gris. Light bright red color, cherry bomb, pomergranate, Jolly Rancher and grippy tanins. Put a little chill on this wine and bring out the charcuterie board. Plus, if can age this wine a few months, the tannins will soften a touch and the fruit will shine a bit more.
A wonderful expression of WV Pinot Gris. This Pinot Gris is crisp and refreshing with fine mineral flavors that the vines absorb from the deep established roots. Golden pale in color, apple, pear, lime and lemon zest on the nose.
Our second vintage of "Bacalao" White Tannat. White flowers on the nose and white peaches on the palate. Great acid and tannic structure. This is a complex wine worthy of aging but also ready to drink in its youth.
Alsea Blanc is a 50/50 blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier from our estate vineyard near the Oregon coast. One the nose you will smell red apple, sweet corn and Rainier cherries tinged with mint chamomile, with a refreshing and subtly creamy textured palate delivers just what the nose promised.
The 2022 WV Pinot Noir is a lush and round wine, softened by barrel fermentation, pure WV Pinot Noir. Bing cherry, blueberry and soft tannins. This is a lovely approachable Pinot Noir. A wonderful example of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with the Tuttle touch! As usual, cellar if you can, if not, decant for a bit.
Skin contact Pinot Gris, pushed through Pinot Noir.
Pinot Gris soaked for five days then pressed through Pinot Noir grapes. Rich and lush on the palate, with flavors of tropical fruits, like mango, papaya.
Zanczak Vineyard is a new vineyard for us. We love this Pinot AND it needs some age. The tannins are grippy on this beauty. The color is dark red, the fruit is bing cherry, pomegranate with anise and sandalwood on the nose.
We would love all our wines to be ready right out the gate but this is not always the case. If you can wait a year or more, you will be richly rewarded. The tannins will become more silky and the fruit will emerge. Some wine needs time, this is one of them.
For whaver reason, Gewürztraminer is not loved by all wine wine drinkers. Folks think it's too sweet or reminds them of the kind of wine their grandma drinks. Well grandma's got something right, Gewürtraminer is a wonderful aromatic wine that paris beautifully with hot and spicy Szechuan, Indian and Thair curry dishes. With a touch of residual sugar, it will quell the heat and all the spices will pop in your mouth with flavor!
The 2022 vintage of Grüner Veltliner is here! This wine falls more on the off-dry with great acid to balance the palate. Notes of snap peas and citrus. This is a wonderful to pair with aparagus, salads and fish. If you are unfamiliar with this grape we suggest you give it a go. It will soon become a white wine favorite.
Laurel Vineyard sits at the top of Bald Peak at 1250’ elevation. Owner and vineyard manager, Andrew and John Albin, specifically planted this Alsatian varietal for his sparkling program. When Barnaby found out some of this fruit was available, he couldn’t wait to get some and work with it. The original vines were transported in a suitcase from Alsace to Oregon by Charles Coury in 1965. We have been making Pinot Noir and Rosé with this fruit for 12 years now and we couldn’t be happier with it.The 2022 Bergspritze is bright with soft tannins and red cherry fruit. Always delicious.
Our "House Style" gateway Riesling. A touch of residual sugar with bracing acidity for balance.Pear Blossom Vineyard is in Washington, located on Underwood Mountain with an elevation between 1200 and 1300 feet and is on a south facing slope. Pear Blossom vineyard is 18 acres total with 16 of them planted with vines and pear trees, thus the name, Pear Blossom Vineyard. It dry farmed, which is our requirement when purchasing fruit. By not watering the vines, it forces the roots to grow deeper into the earth, pushing through various layers of soil strata and picking up more complex flavors which express themselves through the fruit giving the wines a better expression of place- terroir.
The Pinot Noirs from Alsea vineyard have delicate dark fruit, fig skin, graphite, forest floor flavors. These are deadly serious Pinots. They are an Oregon - Burgundy lovers dream.
This wine is made from the only coastal vineyard just 22 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The long summer days are hot while it can dip down into the forties or fifties during the summer. The perfect climate for growing Pinot Noir. If you have a cool, dark spot, age this bottlea bit. The palate will soften and the bouquet will grow. You can pair it with most anything. It's a delight.
So here we are, the second Tannat made with this fruit. “Bacalao” means Salt Cod in Basque and is a traditional dish in the region. The 2021 Tannat is dense and velvety. Unfilterd, the mouth feel reveals layers of purple fruit and with barrel fermentaion the tannins are tamed a bit. Chewy and fruity, red currants, spearmint, black olives & violets.
A natural wine lovers Pinot. 100% Pommard clone. Unfiltered and unfined. Light garnet color containing layers of flavors. Forrest floor, black fig, smoked meat, campfire, barnyard funk! VERY LIMITED PRODUCTION!
This is another beautiful white wine from Teutonic Winery. 100% Pinot noir from Zanczak Vineyard, high in the Willamette Valley, is not your usual "white pinot". It's a Barnaby Tuttle creation, that expresses all the shades/flavors that Pinot noir can be. Wild yeast, volcanic soil, the Tuttle touch. This will soon become another Teutonic favorite. Creamy
Merlot is back in the Teutonic line up. 33+ year old vines, Notes of plum, dark cherry, herbs and spice. Lush mouth feel, soft tannins, earthy finish. The ladies of the Aquitaine will be taken seriously.
The 2018 vintage is a wine with intense character with notes of spiced black cherry, sandalwood and densely textured with granite-like minerality with every sip. It's beauty grows with age. But, it's delicious now with 30+ minutes decanting.

A beautiful expression of extended skin contact Gewürztraminer. This wine is lush and tastes of lychee and and white peaches and as always, beautifully balanced with bright acidity. The mouth feel on this wine is amazing. Only available through on online wine shop or at our tasting room.
When Barnaby and Olga visited the Basque Region of Spain and France and tasted some of the
Tannat wine produced there, they we hooked and dead-set on making this wine. Since 2016 they have been looking for Tannat and finally found some, but not in Oregon, in California. Transporting fruit from
CA to OR is not easy or inexpensive, but this is how much they wanted to make Tannat. So here we are,
the first Tannat made with this fruit. “Bacalao” means Salt Cod in Basque and is a traditional dish in the region. This wine is dense and velvety. Unfilterd, the mouth feel reveals layers of purple fruit and with barrel fermentaion the tannins are tamed.
We love the fruit that comes from the 35 year-old vines at Crow Valley Vineyard! This Pinot Gris is crisp and refreshing with fine mineral flavors that the vines absorb from the deep established roots. Added notes of tropical fruits and white peaches. Teutonic takes Pinot Gris seriously. This is a beautiful wine. Pair with and spicy dish, Asian flavors, charcuterie and summer tomato salads.
The fruit is grown on the top of Bald Peak in the Chehalem Mountains at 1250 feet elevation, hence we call this wine "Bergspitze" which means mountain top in German. 100% Alsatian Coury clones brought back in a suitcase by Charles Coury and planted in Oregon in 1965. The 2018 vintage delivers the typical characteristics of this vineyard, lighter colored but deep in aromatics of bright fruit notes of cherry and white raspberry with a slight dusting of chalkiness. The finish is long and keeps your palate reminded of what you just sipped until the next taste. This wine is light enough to pair with seafood and can hold up to pork and beef. *Please note, the 2020 vintage has a touch of smoke on the palate due to the forest fires that year.
Barnaby has been farming the Wahlstrom Vineyard since 2009. It was planted on a decommissioned gravel quarry with Pinot Noir and a few years later with Riesling. The wines that Wahlstrom Vineyard creates are wine with exceptional balance between acid and dark fruit.Bing cherries, black fig and tobacco mingle with chalk and mineral notes great structure. The acid level is perfect. This wine is drinking great now and has many many years left in the cellar as well.
2014 Asea Ultra spent 2 1/2 years in barrel allowing it to develop a velvety texture on the palate with notes of black cherry, strawberry, tobacco and wet stones with great structure and acid. Barnaby's insistantace on high elevation, old vines and German clones makes his take on Oregon Pinot Noir unique. These wines speak of terrior in the truest sense of the word. This is a serious wine.
2015 Alsea also has great structure. This is a deeper wine with bing cherry, raspberry, cola, strawberry, black tea and black fig skin. Terrific tannins with the acid beautifully in tune with the fruit and mineral notes. If you open this now please decant and give it time to breath. Take a sip and then return in 30 minutes to an opulent gourgeous Pinot. Or hold for as long as ten+ years.
2016 Alsea does not take a backseat. This is a rich and complex Pinot. Black cherry, pipe tobacco, ripe raspberry and earthy mineral notes. And as with all Teutonic wines, it has the acid needed to age and maintain it's structure.
This is a very special set of wines. They show the best of Barnaby's unique singular style of Oregon Pinot Noir.
This is our most "natural" wine. No fining, no filtering, all native yeast. We use wild yeast for all our ferments. This is a pretty wine, with high notes of strawberry and raspberry. It's slightly cloudy, which means it's "natty" not nasty!
Made with fruit from 40 year old vines in a dry-farmed vineyard, fermented with native yeast. Classicalley elegant, no over-the-top in aromatics, mineralic with balanced acidity, this is a Riesling lover's wine.
This wine is made from the only coastal vineyard just 22 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The long summer days are hot while it can dip down into the forties or fifties during the summer, the perfect climate for Pinot Noir. We planted this vineyard ourselves back in 2005 and, while we put more work into it than it can ever deliver in volume, the quality of this wine is sublime. Hints of mint, fennel, cherries and other light berried fruits. The cover crop is sprinkled with hundreds of wild plants that we seeded it with several years back. Everything done is this vineyard is Eco-friendly including our Warez bee hives.
