We’re devoted to producing the finest wine from some of the best fruit sourced in Sonoma County. Sonoma is known to have some of the finest wines from a variety of AVAs such as the Alexander Valley, the Russian River, and Bennet Valley. It is our goal to provide you with wines that express the beauty of Sonoma County.
“Over my lifetime, in spite of what successes I have enjoyed, I have always felt a need to create something beautiful. Something I could do with my family and would bind us closer together. I have realized that dream every time I see the smile on a person’s face as they finish a glass of our wine.”
In 2017, Drive produced a Zinfandel from Puccioni Ranch in Dry Creek Valley and in 2018 a single vineyard Rosé of Zinfandel from Comstock Vineyard, also in Dry Creek Valley. The wines were released in the spring of 2019 to critical and consumer acclaim. Drive continues to hone their craft, focusing on extraordinary vineyards throughout Sonoma County.
“The driving motivation of the Eric Ross style is showcasing the unique qualities of specific vineyards and their geographic locations.
We work with vineyards from Russian River, Dry Creek, Lodi and The Carneros, crafting unique varietals of Albarino, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Tempranillo, Old Vine Zinfandel and Cabernet from the Mayacamas Mountains as well as PORT.
Pretty simple concept. The execution, now that’s the tough part! It starts with respect for your subject, whether it’s from behind the lens or walking through the vineyard.”
We are wine zealots, winemakers, growers and entrepreneurs. Wine runs through our veins. Our mantra is to deliver exceptional wines at amazing prices and we are untiring in our effort to bring our customers the very best wines on the planet.
Treasure Hunter wines are micro-lot and one time releases. Each lot represents the best of it’s appellation, varietal and the winemakers who have crafted them.
They are the crème de la crème of terroir driven wine excellence but get them quick before your next favorite wine is gone forever!
As generations passed, our family stepped away from winemaking to focus their efforts toward cultivation of the land. Their industry varied from farming grapes to dairy cattle, then prunes and orchards and finally, back to grapes in 1972.
For more than three decades we’ve produced premium grapes that have contributed to a multitude of award-winning and notable wines. Now, five generations later, we’ve come full circle with a return to winemaking. With every grape and bottle we produce, we honor the vision of our ancestors, and the heritage and hard work of our family.
Our winemaking philosophy is to make a premium quality Cabernet in small quantity with grapes picked at optimal ripeness. The hillside vineyard provides us with well drained soil that keeps our yields low, producing the highest quality fruit. Our goal is to produce the finest expression of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
