About Us

Shea Wine Cellars is the winemaking effort of grape growers Dick & Deirdre Shea. After ten years of selling all our grape production we decided to create our own expression of Shea Vineyard terroir.

We now use 25% of Shea Vineyard’s production for our own effort and sell the remaining grapes to some of the finest Pinot noir producers in Oregon and California.

At Shea Wine Cellars it is our intention to continue to make small quantities of world class Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
