Ken Wright Cellars

In 1986, with family, belongings and 10 barrels in tow, Ken moved to Oregon, where he believed the finest Pinot Noir in North America was being grown. His concept of focusing on vineyard-designate bottling was cemented as a core philosophy in 1994 when Ken Wright Cellars was founded in historic downtown Carlton. Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to showcasing the inherent quality of selected vineyard sites. With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, Pinot Noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown. Ken Wright Cellars produces a single vineyard Pinot Noir from 13 different vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. Each vineyard, further separated by clones, is hand sorted, fermented in small open vat fermenters until dryness, then pressed and aged separately. Each of Ken Wright Cellars single vineyard Pinot noir, has its own label artwork designed by local artist, David Berkvam. David worked closely with the Wright’s and vineyard owners to create a label that was unique for each site.
