  • What we love

    The 2018 “Mid-Elevation” Pinot Noir is absolutely gorgeous. Elegant and nuanced, the 2018 is wonderfully translucent and yet, there is plenty of depth too, a combination that is super-appealing in my book. Freshly cut flowers, bright red/purplish fruit, mint and chalk all run through this wonderfully inviting Pinot. This is such a classy wine.

Jason Drew

Owner + Winemaker


Jason and Molly Drew started Drew Family Wines 18 years ago with a clear goal in mind: to craft small lot coastal wines that express site specificity and traditional varietal character.

Drew is now one of the hottest wineries in California with Jason Drew making some of the best wines in Mendocino County. 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.
