Whitcraft 2018 Pinot NoirIn Fine Spirits
Mendocino Ridge, Drew Family Vineyard
While most of his vineyard sites are in and around Santa Barbara, Drake Whitcraft enjoys searching far and wide for the best fruit. The Drews are family friends and their Mendocino Ridge Vineyard is biodynamic, dry-farmed with no till which attracted Drake to the sight. The Whitcraft-style of winemaking is very hands-off. Whitcraft Pinot’s are bright and lively, in contrast to their SBC neighbors producing big, bold Pinot’s, with incredible finesse.
