The Domain: Over 40 years of winemaking has taught Ken a simple truth: source is everything. Located in rural Carlton, Oregon, Ken Wright Cellars is devoted to producing wine that showcases the inherent quality of world-class vineyard sites. With unequaled clarity and breadth, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown.

In 1986, with family, belongings and 10 barrels in tow, Ken moved to McMinnville and started Panther Creek Cellars. His concept of focusing on vineyard-designate bottling began during those years at Panther Creek and this was cemented as a core philosophy in 1994 when Ken Wright Cellars was founded. Ken Wright Cellars now produces a single vineyard Pinot Noir from 13 different vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley.

Their approach to the craft of wine growing is one of stewardship rather than manipulation. We use organic certified practices as a base and expand upon that with advanced nutrition-based farming. By analyzing both their soil profile and vines, maintaining proper crop levels, personally sampling each vineyard, and hand-sorting each cluster, we ensure that the inherent character in the fruit is revealed in the finished wine. Minimal handling of wine is essential to preserve what it is; a gift of nature.
