A super special wine that's become one of Drake's (and our) all-time faves. The lightest, most elegant local gamay going. You will not find this on the shelf for long!
Drake Whitcraft took over the family winery in 2007 (the winery was founded two decades before, in 1985 by his parents, Chris and Kathleen). His goal was to make balanced Central Coast wine of purity, honesty, and finesse. He grew up within the culture of wine and California winemaking. He was perpetually under the tutelage of both father Chris and friend Burt Williams, founder of the legendary Williams-Selyem winery in Sonoma. Drake is vinifying with the same old school techniques his dad used (hand-harvesting, foot-pressing etc, no added enzymes or coloration) and with much veneration to Mother Nature herself. The resulting wines are clean and impeccably balanced. They represent a cross section of the emerging class of site-specific wines coming out of Central Coast California today. \*orange wine\*
