Penner-Ash Wine Cellars
Penner-Ash Wine Cellars embodies the spirit and passion of small producers focusing on Pinot Noir in the northern Willamette Valley, Oregon. After working for some of Napa’s premier wineries and Rex Hill Vineyards in Oregon, Lynn Penner-Ash teamed up with husband Ron Penner-Ash to launch Penner-Ash Wine Cellars in 1998. In the winery, the focus is on small lot indigenous yeast fermentation with extended cold soaks to extract a rich, fruit-focused textured mouth feel. Each lot is treated individually and depending on the outcome, either blended into a reserve quality Willamette Valley Pinot Noir or bottled separately as a vineyard designate. Although the focus is Pinot Noir, Penner-Ash also produces limited quantities of Syrah, Riesling and Viognier.
