Thanks to the cool-climate and strong winds, pinot noir grown in the Eola-Amity Hills lingers longer on the vine and is harvested later than most parts of Oregon's most popular growing region. This results in rich, dark flavors of maraschino cherry, red raspberry and ripe strawberries framed with warm vanilla bean, earthy and herbal aromas. Highlighting multiple vineyards from the southern-most part of the Willamette Valley, the Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir is smooth with a juiciness that balances out the richness of the fruit.
In 1998, Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash founded Oregon-based Penner-Ash Wine Cellars located in 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.
