Today, I was lucky enough to visit the Ken Wright Cellars in Carlton, OR.  This is a place that takes advantage of its unique geography and produces some of the regions most top quality Pinot Noir grapes. In addition to sampling some yummy Pinots – I also learned a thing or two about how and why our region is considered “ideal” for growing this variety. The Northern Willamette Valley offers a maritime climate with the right combination of mountain ranges and sandy soil to help crops flourish. Whatever elements have to combine to help these little fruits grow and develop is obviously happening on the vineyards of KWC. Thanks again Jodi!
