Wine maker notes
A few years ago I met with Burt Williams (Williams Selyem founding partner) while scouting vineyard sources. Burt first planted his 12 acre vineyard in the Anderson Valley AVA in 2001 to some of the best field selections seen today. He chose to plant his vineyard on a hillside in the deep end of Philo in an area that gets plenty of wind and sunlight hours on a southern exposure at approximately 800 ft in elevation. In 2009 I received a call from Burt saying that there was some fruit available for me. Fast forward to a private barrel tasting of his first Morning Dew vintage and I was immediately blown away with the structure and audacity of his wine. From that day forward I was committed to the fruit and believe this is one of the premier vineyard sites in Anderson Valley. It has all the attributes that I look for: hillside drainage, higher elevation, coastal fog influence and excellent farming with great care given to the vineyard.

Jason and Molly Drew started Drew Family Cellars in 2000 making only 150 cases of Pinot Noir and Syrah while Jason made wines for Babcock Winery in Santa Rita Hills. Jason felt compelled to begin his own project where he could direct the vinification completely. Word of mouth was and continues to be how their wines have gotten their footing in restaurants and with mailing list believers. The wines were quickly sold out and Jason and Molly began to slowly grow their label. Jason wanted to employ traditional winemaking methods that include hand punch downs, whole cluster and native yeast fermentations and no fining or filtering. With a background of over 20 years in the vineyard and the winery, Jason has been able to bring it all together to handcraft wines that offer a unique sense of place and traditional style. Drew remains committed to Pinot Noir and Syrah from California’s northern far coastal edge, which includes Mendocino Ridge, Anderson Valley and the Yorkville Highlands. Jason also makes a very small amount of Albarino from their coastal region. Case production remains small, which allows Jason to concentrate on all aspects of the process, from vineyard farming to all vinification decisions in the winery. Decisions made in the vineyard become fluid into the winery, allowing for a pure expression of place in the resulting wines. This concept of wines being able to express their place is vital to understanding Drew wines. Drew is not trying to make wines in another image, but rather are creating their own from Mendocino’s far coast.
