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.
Stoller Family Estate
In 1990 the Wetzel family planted their first vines on the hillside property in Dallas. A fourth-generation winemaker, Andreas Wetzel’s attention to detail continues to garner prestigious wine awards, including five from the July 2013 issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine. The family-owned and operated boutique winery prides itself on crafting high-quality wines with exceptional value.
“The Willamette Valley with its gently rolling hills and unique microclimate allows us to produce some of the finest Pinot Noirs in the world,” - Andreas Wetzel
The majority of our production includes Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. Then smaller lots of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Marechal Foch, and Chardonnay. In homage to our German roots, we make a sekt style sparkling, Eiswein style sweet wine, and Glühwein a traditional spiced wine served heated or chilled.
