Embrace the Edge

Spectral Cellars

Spectral Cellars invites you to journey beyond the spectrum of commercially produced varietals most commonly found in Oregon.

Embrace the Edge and travel with us while we explore the varietal fringe as we focus our classical winemaking techniques to shine a light on the often overlooked varietals that thrive in Oregon.

With an extreme focus on high quality and balanced wines, we source fruit from some of the finest vineyards across the state of Oregon.  We employ both traditional and modern winemaking techniques to craft wines of great balance and harmony that are approachable upon release, but will reward with great patience in the cellar.

Spectral Cellars is dedicated to producing wines perfect for pairing with the communal dining experience.  Our wines are extremely food friendly being old-world, classical interpretations that showcase a sense of place, fruit purity, youthful acidity and lower alcohol levels.

Please be on the lookout for upcoming releases in the near future by signing up for our newsletter below.
