Its Origins

Founded by husband and wife team Lynn and Ron Penner-Ash, the winery embodies the spirit and passion of a boutique producer. Each lot is carefully crafted to bring forth the truest expression of a given vineyard site, from small-lot indigenous yeast fermentation to extended cold soaks. Penner-Ash specializes in Pinot Noir, Viognier and old-vine Riesling from the northern Willamette Valley. Today, Founding Winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash works hand in hand with Kate Ayres, continuing the Penner-Ash legacy vintage over vintage.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Fermented entirely in stainless steel, this reliably excellent wine is once again deeply fruited with mixed citrus, honeysuckle and Bosc pear. A pleasing minerality underscores the zesty finish."

91/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (2016 vintage)

"Limpid yellow-gold. Aromas of fresh orchard and citrus fruits along with hints of white flowers and dusty minerals. Gently sweet pear, orange and melon flavors show a suave floral quality and a firming quinine note. Finishes silky and taut, featuring an echoing floral note and very good persistence. This is a more restrained version of the variety than one normally finds from the New World." Drink 2017 - 2025
