Remy Wines is a Willamette Valley winery founded in 2006 by lesbian winemaker and true Oregonian, Remy Drabkin. Born and raised in McMinnville, Remy came up in the cellars of Willamette Valley greats and by the age of eight, she knew she wanted to become a winemaker herself. Remy Wines produces northern Italian varieties grown in the Pacific Northwest, Willamette Valley legacy grapes and emerging varieties in her hometown of McMinnville, Oregon. Consistent throughout is Drabkin’s unmistakable flair for innovation and her healthy disregard for convention.
The Remy Wines portfolio is divided into three labels: Remy Wines, under which single-varietal expressions of northern Italian grapes like Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Dolcetto and Lagrein are found; Three Wives, an homage to her vibrant family which includes accessible cuvées of white, red and rosé wines each year; and the emerging Black Heart Series, including odes to Super Tuscans, Bordeaux-style Malbec-Carménère blends, Willamette Valley Chardonnays and a Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine. Wines can be enjoyed at the beautiful Remy Wines farmhouse tasting room in Dayton, Oregon which accepts tastings by appointment and walk-in daily from 12 to 5 pm. This welcoming, unpretentious space is the perfect setting to enjoy wine flights, wines by the glass and a picnic basket and is both dog and family friendly.
In the summer of 2022, Remy Wines will open a new 5,000-square-foot winery facility adjacent to the farmhouse tasting room which will be constructed with a carbon-neutral concrete formula bearing her name: the Drabkin-Mead Formula. Remy Wines will be the first commercial winery built with this concrete mix, which has been made open source to enable other sustainably-minded businesses to construct with this carbon-mitigating material.
In addition to being one of the few prominent queer winemakers in Oregon, Drabkin has dedicated over 16 years to public service. Remy is a duly elected McMinnville City Council member and City Council President, she is also the Chair of the Affordable Housing Commission and Liaison to the newly-formed Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Taskforce. In 2020, Remy Co-Founded Wine Country Pride, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, bringing LGBTQ+ Pride celebrations to rural Oregon. In 2022, Remy Wines will host the world’s first Queer Wine Fest as part of this year’s Wine Country Pride festivities. Remy Wines, like its visionary founder, honors Old-World winemaking traditions with undeniable flair and a fresh, progressive voice.
