Spruce
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:



FOR KEN WRIGHT, THE SEED FOR A CAREER IN WINE WAS PLANTED SQUARELY IN BOURBON COUNTRY OF LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY. WHILE WAITING TABLES TO PUT HIMSELF THROUGH SCHOOL, KEN WAS EXPOSED TO FINE WINES FROM REGIONS AROUND THE WORLD. THE PASSION INSPIRED KEN TO ATTEND ENOLOGY AND VITICULTURE CLASSES AT UC DAVIS. HE LATER SPENT EIGHT YEARS MAKING WINE IN MONTEREY COUNTY UNTIL 1976, WHEN FRIENDS FROM THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY CONVINCED HIM THAT THIS WAS WHERE THE FINEST PINOT NOIR IN NORTH AMERICA WAS BEING GROWN.

KEN WAS A PIONEER OF SINGLE-VINEYARD PINOT NOIR EARLY ON AND MAKES A DOZEN SINGLE-VINEYARD PINOT NOIRS EACH YEAR. GIVEN HIS APPRECIATION OF SENSE OF PLACE, IT WAS NATURAL THAT KEN WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN ORGANIZING SIX NEW AVAs IN THE NORTHERN WILLAMETTE VALLEY.

KEN'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, INCLUDING BEING VOTED AS THE OREGON WINE PERSON OF THE YEAR IN 2012; AND IN 2014 WAS AN AMERICAN WINERY OF THE YEAR NOMINEE. IN 2014, WINE ENTHUSIAST RANKED KEN'S 2012 ABBOTT CLAIM VINEYARD PINOT NOIR THE NUMBER ONE WINE ON THE WORLD. THEN IN 2015, KEN WAS RECOGNIZED AS THE FIRST OREGON WINE MAKER ON THE COVER OF WINE SPECTATOR MAGAZINE.

KEN WILL LEAD US THROUGH THE WINES ALONGSIDE A SPECIAL MENU CRAFTED BY CHEFS MARK SULLIVAN AND ROGELIO GARCIA. IN ADDITION, GUESTS OF THE DINNER WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE WINE AT RETAIL PRICING.
