Local Vino Hero
A Walla Walla native, Drury started out in the wine industry at the local community college studying viticulture and enology before subsequently working at famed Ciel du Cheval on Red Mountain. She now oversees six vineyards covering 300 acres of prime real estate in Walla Walla Valley, with a who’s who list of winery clients. “My biggest block that I farm is five acres,” Drury says. “We’re farming at a micro level.” In 2021, she was recognized by the Washington Wine Growers Association as Grower of the Year, the second woman and youngest person to ever receive the recognition.
