This is our inaugural release from our Estate site located 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 1,250 feet in elevation on a south slope located on the Southern Mendocino Coast. The site was carefully chosen after years of research. The climate and soils are ideal for a Pinot Noir vineyard. Ancient ocean floor soils of decomposed sandstone and shale high in iron content, high in quartzite with an ideal ratio of sand, clay and silt. Marginal fertility combined with excellent water holding capacity and drainage makes for an extremely compelling site for our estate Pinot Noir. The results are nothing less than stunning for a structured wine of pedigree and poise.

WINE PRODUCER

Jason and Molly Drew started Drew in 2000 with a clear pursuit in mind: to craft small lot, cool climate wines that express site distinction and traditional varietal character.   Their moment came when they stumbled upon an old 26 acre apple orchard within the Mendocino Ridge Appellation.   While others saw a daunting project in this old forgotten orchard,  Jason and Molly saw ancient oceanic soils, south facing slopes at 1250 ft elevation, putting them just above the fogline and a true coastal climate, with the ocean a mere 3.3 miles away.  It didn’t take long for them to decide to leap and leap they did. The Drew estate winery at Faîte De Mer Farm was born.
The eight acre estate vineyard was planted to a collection of California heritage field selections, suitcase selections and several Dijon clones of Pinot Noir.  Additionally, two acres of Chardonnay were added along with a small truffle orchard to accompany the remaining 14 acre apple orchard. Faîte De Mer Farm is certified organic, continuing a 30 plus year tradition of farming to this standard on this site.
