Jason Drew began his winemaking odyssey in 1980, when he helped plant his uncle’s vineyard in the Stag’s Leap District of Napa Valley. Jason then pursued an education based on the land – in Agricultural Ecology, Viticulture and Enology. A passion and philosophy grew during the early years, when Jason managed world-class vineyards in Northern California. Discussions that had germinated years earlier when Jason and Molly first dreamt of having their own winery began to resurface. In 2000, they formed Drew while Jason was Associate Winemaker at Babcock Vineyards and Winery in Santa Barbara’s Santa Rita Hills area. In 2003, Drew was on its own. 2004 was a milestone year, when Jason and Molly purchased property on a ridgetop overlooking Anderson Valley to the east and the Pacific Ocean 3 miles to the west. Jason's instinct was clear that this property has the potential for Pinot Noir greatness! They spent the following year designing and building their boutique winery and moved in for the 2005 Read more »

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States.

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Drew Family Cellars Syrah Laventi Vineyard 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I love this wine! And though I hate when I agree with Parker, Tanzer AND the Wine Spectator, they all gave this wine a minimum of 90 points. Classic cool weather Syrah - white pepper, violets, bacon/smoked meat and dark fruits. Very reasonable alcohol and middle-weight on the palate. A great food wine. Read More

  • Drew Family Cellars Syrah Anderson Valley Valenti Vineyard 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I love this wine, as it expresses a classic cool-weather Syrah profile - violet notes floating atop the classic white pepper, bacon/smoked meat and dark fruit characteristics of Syrah. Read More
