Tualatin Estate Vineyard, established in 1973 by wine pioneer Bill Fuller, is one of the oldest and most respected vineyard sites in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Wine grapes from this 175-acre vineyard have produced world-renowned wines for nearly 45 years. Tualatin is the only vineyard to have won the Best of Show for both the red and white categories at the London International Wine Competition in the same year.
Tualatin’s Pinot Noir captured the Governor’s Trophy, Oregon’s most prestigious wine award, two years consecutively in 1994 and 1995. This is a feat unduplicated by any Oregon winery. Tualatin Estate Vineyard is proudly owned and operated by Willamette Valley Vineyards since 1997.
The name “Tualatin” originates from local indigenous people and means “gentle and easy flowing,” referring to the local Tualatin River that meanders on its way to the confluence with the Willamette River. The site is located in the coastal rain shadows near Forest Grove, Oregon.
