E11even by Andrew Murray
Introduced to Rhône Valley varieties during lengthy family travels in France, Andrew Murray traded his UC Berkeley paleontology studies for UC Davis’ enology and viticulture program. He pursued his new mistress, Syrah, with an extended internship in Australia. His tryst evolved into a full-fledged love affair with his favorite variety. After selling his vineyard in 2005, Andrew reignited his passion by selecting vineyards throughout the Central Coast to tease out compelling flavors from his flirty temptress. In the words of Robert Parker, Jr., “…Andrew Murray’s offerings are a breath of fresh air given their exceptionally high quality and realistic prices.”
Andrew’s focus, passion, and dedication to his craft, have culminated in what The Wine Advocate calls, “…one of the shining stars in the Santa Barbara firmament.” We hope you’ll come visit our Los Olivos tasting room or make a weekend visit to the winery to taste the fruits of Andrew’s passionate labors!
