As a fifteen-year veteran of the Oregon wine industry, Drew is intimately familiar with exceptional vineyard sites. While serving as the Associate Winemaker at Domaine Serene Winery, and then as Winemaker for Shea Wine Cellars, Drew worked with some of the best vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Harper Voit is the logical progression of that experience: seeking out great sites, excellent fruit, and long-term relationships with growers. Drew also consults for a number of wineries in the Willamette Valley and operates a custom winemaking operation for small ultra-pemium brands. Andrew Bandy-Smith, a well-respected sommelier, met Drew at an event at Shea Wine Cellars and asked him for a harvest internship. After a full year of harvest cellar work, including time in Victoria, Australia and at Archery Summit winery in Dundee Hills, Andrew met up with Drew again, this time as assistant for Harper Voit Wines.
