Penner Ash was founded in 1998 by winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash and her educator husband Ron Penner-Ash. After beginning her winemaking career at notable Napa Valley wineries, Lynn became the first woman winemaker hired in Oregon, when she took the post as head winemaker for Rex Hill. While at Rex Hill, Lynn and Ron launched Penner-Ash, producing 125 cases of Pinot Noir and Syrah in their first year. In 2005 they built their stunning, hill-top, gravity-flow winery surrounded by sustainably farmed estate vineyards, where today they produce 15,000 cases of single vineyard and appellation Pinot Noir, Syrah, Riesling, Viognier and Rosé. The winery is open to visitors daily. www.pennerash.com
