Purple Hands Wines

Purple Hands

Purple Hands is the winery of Cody Wright, a young winemaker from Portland, Oregon. Cody makes wine the handmade way, maintaining a close connection to the vineyard.

People who make wine inevitably have "Purple Hands" during harvest, (along with quite a bit of purple on clothes and other parts of the body as well). During harvest, purple hands provide a quick way to recognize fellow winemakers.

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 intense but rewarding work assisting at key wineries in California, Oregon, New Zealand and Australia. Upon returning to Oregon, Cody set Purple Hands into full swing.


More About Purple Hands Wines

Cody's primary focus is on a constant awareness of the wine growing environment, carefully managing the way Purple Hands wine evolves through the process of picking and sorting the very best grapes, handling and pressing the grapes, watching over the juice during maceration and fermentation, patiently creating the ideal blends and completing the process with bottling and labels.
