Ken Wright Cellars
United States, Oregon

We began buying from Ken Wright in his second vintage, 1995, after he sold Panther Creek Cellars in McMinnville and moved to the sleepy hamlet of Carlton.  We have had a marvelous 20+ year relationship with Ken since that time.  He is easily one of the most knowledgeable, passionate, friendly, generous, straightforward people we know.  We are honored to represent both Ken Wright Cellars and his Tyrus Evan brand.


If Ken didn’t originate the idea of vineyard designations of Pinot Noir in Oregon, he certainly has been the most influential promoter of them.  He believes that there is no grape more than Pinot Noir that can transparently express its terroir, and he continues to push that idea through his ten (and counting) single-vineyard bottlings each vineyard.  If the vintage allows for it, he also produces a Willamette Valley blend.  In addition, he produces a cool-climate Washington Chardonnay and an Oregon Pinot Blanc.
