In 1998, Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash founded Oregon-based Penner-Ash Wine Cellars located in the Willamette Valley’s Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Bringing to life their shared vision, through years of hard work and unyielding commitment, the pair built a reputation for lush, layered Pinot Noir and community leadership throughout the valley. With founding Winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash and Winemaker Kate Ayres at the helm, today the winery continues to source from premier vineyards across the Willamette Valley’s sub-AVAs, grounded in decades-long relationships with grower neighbors and friends.
