The Vitality of Oregon
This is a watershed time for Carlton Cellars! In 2007 we opened our very own winery and tasting room, bottled the first public releases from our own estate grapes, inaugurated the Carlton Cellars Connoisseurs Club, and launched our new website. In 2008 we tripled our wine list, and the momentum keeps building.

The Boldness of the Pacific Coast
Oregon's breathtaking Pacific Coast exerts a profound influence on the geology and climate of the Willamette Valley. Well-drained volcanic soils rich in marine sediment combine with our infamous Pacific Northwest weather to produce the phenomenal vineyards behind our wines — including our own Estate Vineyard in the Savannah Ridge microclimate.
In honor of the Pacific that so richly defines our winemaking, each of our wines is named for a special place on the Oregon coast, illustrated with stunning label art depicting the variety and drama of our storied coastline:
- Roads End Oregon Pinot Noir — our celebrated flagship wine
- Cape Lookout Oregon Pinot Noir — our phenomenal estate wine
- Agate Beach Oregon Pinot Noir Rosé — our dynamically dry rosé
The Character of the Willamette Valley
Oregon's fertile Willamette Valley has established itself as one of the world's perfect places for Pinot Noir and many other varieties. In the heart of this thriving, artisanal wine country lies the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, the American Viticultural Area that is home to Carlton Cellars and our Estate Vineyard.
