Winemaker Notes

Recreation Red Blend is a bend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvedre. It is juicy and bright with notes of blackberry, cinnamon and cocoa.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Driscoll Recreation Red Wine is big and smooth. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows plenty of ripe, black, jammy fruit aromas and flavors. Enjoy it with grilled cheeseburgers. (Tasted: June 19, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Driscoll Wine Co Winemaker Jason Driscoll Winery Image

Chef-turned-winemaker, Jason Driscoll, makes terroir driven wines from unique vineyards throughout Northern California. Driscoll seeks to highlight older vines, forgotten regions, and food-friendly styles at everyday prices.

Jason and Hilary Driscoll met in Washington State and discovered their love of wine through Jason’s work as a chef and their determination to find the perfect wine pairings. What was supposed to be a brief once-in-a-lifetime harvest opportunity in between kitchens, turned into a passion and full-time job as Jason worked his way up through the cellars at Hunnicut Wines before becoming the Assistant Winemaker for David and Katharine DeSante of DeSante Wines. “DeSante University” immersed him both in the vineyards and the cellar. He learned everything from pruning to pump-building. Jason was exposed to lesser known vineyards, both old and new, that produced spectacular fruit. Inspired by the quality wines these vineyards produced, Hilary and Jason conceived Tilth Wines.

Tilth, which refers to soil health, encapsulates the Driscoll’s approach to exploring California’s treasury of soils. Working with individual growers that he has developed relationships with, Jason focuses on authenticity and makes wines that are unique every vintage.

While pursuing a career as a Chef and cooking in kitchens throughout Seattle and Napa Valley, Jason found a home as a cellar hand in the caves of Hunnicutt Wines in Saint Helena, California.

Jason worked as a cellar hand for two years at Hunnicutt Wines. After living a nomadic existence for the three years following college, Hilary was ready to set roots in a town similar to the one she grew up in Idaho. As a new mother in 2011, the time was more important than ever to take the leap of faith and fully commit to making Saint Helena the home of the Driscoll family.

When DWC started, Jason was stretched thin with a full-time job working for another winery. Hilary threw herself into the business to keep it alive. Making wine was the easy part; things like accounting, compliance and sales, are the hardest part. She immersed herself in books about accounting and the wine business in general to help out in any way she could. Now, as a mother of two (J and Ellie), Hilary runs the books for DWC and also hits the road whenever she can to spread the word about the wines they so passionately make.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
