Drew Herman started as our Assistant Winemaker earlier this year.
Drew’s interest in wine and fermentation began very young. He made his
first batch of wine as a twelve year old for a middle school career
fair. His budding career was quickly curtailed by the administration for
a few years after he was found serving it to the other students. He
After receiving a degree in Biology and Botany from the University of
Oklahoma, Drew moved to Portland, OR. He spent years working in organic
farming throughout the Willamette Valley and quickly took interest in
the surrounding vineyards and fell in love with the idea of farming for
expression. He eventually found a way to be that twelve year old self
forever and entered the wine-making profession. He has made wine and
worked in vineyards in both hemispheres since then and still does a
little veggie farming on the weekends if he can help it.
