Winemaker's Notes:

We work with one site in the Coast Range just south of Dallas, OR. Freedom Hill Vineyards soil type is known as Bellpine, which is sedimentary in origin. The clone is Pommard and the vineyard was planted in 1980. The wines from this site are the firmest and most structured that we work with. They have great longevity.

About Ken Wright Cellars:

Located 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.

We also have a place in our hearts for the limited production of two white wines, Chardonnay from Celilo Vineyard near White Salmon, Washington, and Pinot Blanc from Freedom Hill Vineyard and Meredith Mitchell Vineyard.
