About the winery:
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 world-class vineyard sites' inherent quality. 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.
