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

  • You should never judge a grape by its color. This past week wine journalist Erika Szymanski chronicled the differences between pinot noir, pinot gris and pinot blanc. 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

  • Early in my exploration of wine, I settled on Brunello Di Montalcino as one of my favorites, and eventually as my single favorite. Since then, I’ve been asked many times, “Why this wine? 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

  • I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. 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

  • With one final nod to experimentation this year, I’m leaving you with this suggestion for fall: Try some Carmenere! It’s a variety that I’ve been pushing as a mid-weight summer red because it is a great wine with grilled meats, but it’s also a lovely wine for fall, though perhaps best used with some well seasoned, herb-dotted pork dishes as the ...

  • Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...
