Drew Family Wines in Vinous

Drew Family Wines out of Mendocino Ridge, CA, has received a blockbuster set of scores for their 2017 vintage. Antonio Galloni has high praise, with the single-vineyard Wendling Pinot Noir rating 96 points. Galloni says of the vintage: "These are some of the most impressive wines I have tasted from Jason Drew. The 2017 Pinots in particular are superb."

With over 25 years in the wine business in Central and Northern California, Jason Drew brings a vast depth of knowledge and a holistic perspective to his winemaking. Drew focuses on small lot coastal Pinot Noir and Syrah from Anderson Valley and the Mendocino Ridge. For his sourced fruit, he has long standing partnerships with several local vineyard growers who share his passion for sustainable and meticulous farming practices. Single vineyard sources are chosen for their climate, clonal selection and complexity of soil type. Winemaking practices remain focused on traditional methods that include whole cluster and native yeast fermentations, hand punchdowns and no fining or filtering.
