Ken Wright Cellars

Originally a native of Louisville, Kentucky, over the past 30 years, Ken Wright has become one of the most influential figures of the Oregon fine wine scene. Wright has become the de facto information source for countless new producers and Oregon wine industry beginners and is known as both the steward of important viticulture techniques in the state and the driving force behind research and development projects that benefit the entire Wilamette Valley wine community.

Since originally founding Panther Creek Cellars and through the creation of his eponymous operation, Wright’s career has developed and morphed from a combination of negociant, winemaker and farmer of other producer’s plots into that of estate manager and multi-vineyard owner. “It was a full twelve years before I bought my first vineyard,” Wright has said, “because before that I was in the exploratory phase of trying to find the very best sites in the entire valley.”

Currently, along with the three vineyards he owns outright, Wright has established 15 to 30 year leases on five other sites and more than three quarters of the vines that supply his single vineyard and regional cuvées are farmed by his own extensive - and for certain vineyards completely site-specific - management team. Wright is passionate and forthright on the diverse aspects of premium Pinot Noir production and espouses his own, individual take on viticulture, something he calls “nutrition-based farming” and that he notes is akin to “biodynamics elevated to a whole different level”, focusing on the promotion of microbial life in each vineyard block.

AWC is the UK importer and distributor of Ken Wright wines.
