We love Ken Wright wines, quality wine and reasonable prices. However every time we try stopping by the tasting room staff is not always as good as the wines. Just FYI, stop for the wine anyway just be prepared.

The reason why we started loving Oregon wines was after drinking a bottle of Ken Wright several years ago. So we made it a point to visit Ken Wright Cellars, although it was 45 minutes further than all the other wineries on our itinerary. The...More
