Drew is a purist who likes wines that are well-balanced and have a “certain something” about them that defies description. Over the years Drew has created wines for many well respected wineries but after he married Emily, she convinced him it was time they create their own wine. No mortgage. No kids. Let’s do it! Trail Marker was born. Drew entered the wine world attending UCSB, living near Santa Barbara’s wine country. While pursuing a masters degree at Cal State LA, Drew worked at Colorado Wine Company. There he met Kent Humphrey of Eric Kent Wines. Kent encouraged Drew to head north to work a harvest. From there, Drew was off and running. He worked at Copain, DuMol, Kosta Brown and Wither Hills and becoming the winemaker for Tuck Beckstoffer Wines. In 2013, Drew became the head winemaker for R2 Wine/Roessler Cellars, where he still consults.
