  • What we love

    Jason Drew makes a range of Pinots, but the Fog-Eater is his calling card, a plummy, tension-filled snapshot of the appellation from a blend of sites in Anderson Valley’s north end. Bright, floral and beautifully lifted, it is all class. The delicate and perfumed nose keeps you bending in, and on the palate expect to find nuances that cover the red fruit flavor spectrum – tart strawberries, rhubarb, cranberry, black cherries – with a touch of tea, mint, and earthy tones. This one is not to be missed as it is gorgeous!

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.
