Wines

Our wines are made from vineyards in Oregon and Washington, selected for their unique geological characteristics, climate, and quality of fruit. Each wine is made in our Southeast Portland winery with minimal intervention, honoring the fruit, the vineyard, and the hard work of the grape growers.

We make three pillars of wines: Willamette Valley and single vineyard Pinot noir, aromatic whites, and Rhône variety reds.

To order wine, please email us at info@helioterrawines.com. Our wines are currently distributed in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, Canada (Ontario), and Japan.
