Purple Hands Winery – Oregon
New in Stock! Purple Hands Oregon Pinot Noir and Red Blend
Purple Hands is owned and operated by Oregon winemaker Cody Wright (Son of Ken Wright). Cody grew up in the Willamette Valley, Oregon’s most recognized and abundant wine region.
The name Purple Hands comes from Cody’s life of growing up in wineries. You start the year in harvest with your hands in “lees” (sediment of red fermenting grapes that is extremely neon purple) and with your hands working the wine from punch downs to pressing and from pressing to filling barrels purple liquid fills every finger print. Once the barrels are full very often you top them all, regularly soaking your hands… and once again “you’ve got PH”, Purple Hands! The syndrome wine makers can never get rid of.
