The Fog-Eater Pinot Noir is our Anderson Valley appellation blend. We combine several sites from both bench and hillside locales along with outer western rim vineyards to create a classic layered expression of Anderson Valley. The term Fog-eater is a Boontling term, used to describe those who live out on the coastal margins. The outliers in the fog. We used 100% native yeasts during fermentation and 25% whole clusters bringing additional structure and spice into the blend. Bright red pomegranate and cranberries along with crushed wildflowers and trumpet mushrooms are evident here. Savory spice and mineral undertones follow along with mouthwatering acidity for a persistent finish.

Why we love it: It has a mouthwatering finish
Drink with: Pair with Mushroom Risotto or a Seared Duck Breast.

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.
