  • Black Chalk Wild Rose × 2

    “Rhubarb, redcurrant, raspberry. Just what you want from a pink fizz. A wonderful food wine, this is versitile and refreshing, dry and silky smooth, fruity and just a little nutty. Top marks”


  • René Jolly Blanc de Blancs × 2

    “Brioche bread used to be for dipping in coffee, now it's wrapped around every burger going. That bit of bakery is exactly the smell you get from this Champagne. There's no patty and sauce in this bun thankfully just; lemon curd, pear, lime zestiness and apricot. Not that we are doctors but this should be taken every evening before dinner, where possible.”


  • Alexana Riesling Revana Estate Vineyards

    “Floral and citrusy with a little sultana and honey thing going on. A touch of plimsole rubber reminds you it can only be Riesling. A long, lingering finish with loads of creamy mouthfeel, backed up by acidity that zips through everything. Just the ticket!”


  • Peter Franus Wine Napa Valley Albariño

    “Be warned - there is oak here! But what lovely oak it is. Buttery and toasty with a round, creamy texture that backs up ripe citrus and stone fruit. And it all just hangs around for ages after each decadent sip. Lovers of big whites will be richly rewarded here.”


  • Domaine Pillot Champgains, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanc

    “Another first-rate White Burgundy from M. Pillot. All the buttery, creaminess you'd expect, toasty sultanas, vanilla and bruised apples. Another one for tucking away under the stairs for a few years, but I bet you won't be able to keep your hands off it.”


  • Pahlmeyer Jayson Sauvignon blanc

    “Wow Pahlmeyer! This is a dream Sauvignon blanc from Napa Valley. A delicate symphony of aroma and flavour featuring; ripe pineapple, mint, lime, fresh asparagus, stonefruits, cream and flint smoke. Clean, composed and drinkable to the extreme.”


  • Domaine Pillot Chassagne-montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Rouge

    “All the berry fruit, all the baking spices, a little mushroom-y development and fine yet persistent tannins, this is proper wine. Drinking very well now, this should keep till the next decade, easy. But can you wait that long...?”


  • Seven Hills Winery Merlot

    “Seven Hills Winery know their way around a Merlot grape that's for sure. This is masterfully concentrated with flavours of plums, leather, cigars, coffee, sweet spices. The acidity is high and cleans the mouth making you ready for more.”


  • Il Borghetto Bilaccio

    “Another Sangiovese from Chianti where the winemaker doesn't want to be shackled by the Chianti Classico regulations and has done his own thing. And what a thing he's done! Leather, smoke, dried cherry, blackcurrant, plums, liquorice, balsamic, clove, anise, dark chocolate, the finest of tannins and refreshing acidity. Just incredible. And it'll keep for a few years...”


  • Twill Cellars Syrah - Oregon

    “Drink it now or save or for later (ie 2030!), this is genuine quality from a top producer getting new and wonderful things from a variety often seen (and treated) as an old favourite. We can't think of anyone else making Syrah that tastes like this - elegant restrained and classy with great, slightly lifted fruit, super-fine tannins, excellent acid balance, spice and development. Tremendous.”

MEET THE PRODUCERS

Twill Cellars

twill cellars is a small Oregon wine project presenting the influence of land, weather and craft in a vinous assembly.

We began twill cellars as a project to explore some of the more unique terroirs in Oregon while employing the three varieties best suited to express the variations of land and vintages that we are hoping to capture (Chardonnay, Pinot noir & Syrah).

We’re a fairly unobtrusive bunch – organic in the fields and very low impact in the winery. All of our wines are sourced from the grape and no procured bulk wine is used in our production. We likely won’t attain Instagram fame or pay too close attention to trend-setting wineries, though our hope is to keep ahead by crafting serious wines that are vineyard and vintage specific from some of the best terroirs in Oregon.

Molly and Darrel Roby began as growers of a small, 2.7-acre vineyard that they planted together in 2000. With the guidance of a stellar foreman, Luis Hernandez, they’ve learned the subtle details in farming for wine and not just fruit. Darrel does day-to-day work in the vineyards while fixing or innovating new equipment for the cellar. Molly handles hospitality and keeps our immeasurable amount of paperwork humming along. When they have the chance, they can be found exploring the great gastronomy in Portland or spending time with their pup Mica, a Bernese Mountain Dog.

Chris Dickson was determined to find a way to travel and get away from writing papers for a while after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill following studies in Psychology and Biology. A while is still present tense and following years of work in wine production around the world for many excellent winemakers – Matello, Evesham Wood, Penner-Ash, Betz Family, Framingham, Landmark, Lammershoek and Dr. Loosen – he continues to hone the quality of wines he crafts. When he’s not scrubbing a tote or moving something to get to something, he’s spending time with his wife Ruth, their four cats, a shovel for yard work and levain for baking.

Jonathan Sundy, our foundational artist, has known Chris since high school in Pittsburgh, PA. When Chris was looking for a designer for this project he happened across Jonathan’s work and discovered he had also settled in Portland. Jonathan’s talent and exceptional fine art ability help bring the essence of twill cellars to life visually.
