Since its first release in 1998, the Penner-Ash Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has been the winery's flagship and has become an iconic Oregon Pinot. Each year this wine is blended from a unique selection of vineyards from across the Willamette Valley to epitomize the best of the region, vintage, and the spirit of community that can only be described as uniquely Oregonian. Combining strawberry jam, ripe cherry, brown sugar and hints of whole peppercorn, this Pinot Noir is velvety with a balance of sweet and savory that will leave you wanting more.
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.
