Purple Hands is owned and operated by Oregon winemaker and oenophile, Cody Wright. Cody grew up in the Willamette Valley, Oregon's most recognized and abundant wine region. With constant immersion in the wine culture and with close family ties to some of the greatest wineries in the Northwest, Cody pursued the intense but rewarding work at key wineries in California, Oregon, New Zealand and Australia. Upon returning to Oregon, Cody partnered with long-time friend Matt Giannone to set Purple Hands into full swing. – Description from Nerevar

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

Her conclusion in the Palate Press article? Though pinot grapes may be a different color, their genetic information is actually quite similar. “If you found that unsatisfying, you ... Read More

What’s so special about Brunello?”  Some have wondered why I would have embraced a wine that they view as “big” and masculine, since people new to wine tend tow... Read More

The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More
