Drew Family Cellars

Jason Drew, along with his wife, Molly, started the Drew Family Winery at the turn of the century with a strong desire to craft small production coastal wines that expressed both their site and traditional varietal character. In 2004 they bought 10 hectares of land that were planted with apple trees at the time. It was in the Mendocino Ridge, west of Anderson Valley and north of Sonoma Coast, and just 3 miles from the sea. The land was replanted with Pinot Noir and a new winery was built. 2014 saw their first ever wine produced from this vineyard. In between times they forged relationships with vineyard owners who they respected and who worked in a sustainable way that they admired and bought Pinot and Syrah grapes from vineyards that interested them, from both the Ridge and Anderson Valley. In terms of winemaking, they retain a certain percentage of whole bunches as they add freshness and complexity and avoid heavy extraction. The wines are generally bottled unfined and unfiltered and are amongst the very finest examples coming out of California. Pure, honest and at times, thrilling. `Their roomy winery, on their property in the remote town of Elk, just over three miles from the Pacific Ocean, puts owner/winemaker Jason Drew right in the middle of his own seven-acre, organically and dry-farmed vineyard` Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, May 2013
