Welcome to
Ken Wright Cellars

Established in 1994, in rural Carlton, Oregon, 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, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, 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.

More than any other variety, Pinot noir has very specific climatic needs. While other varieties can adapt to variable conditions, Pinot noir can be rather finicky, achieving success in only a handful of places in the world.

Pinot noir has the ability to connect us to a place unlike anything else we drink or eat. It is like a blank canvas that is painted with the unique aromas and flavors of its location. Come taste the place!
