“As Robert Parker, Jr. put it, “…Andrew Murray’s offerings are a breath of fresh air given their exceptionally high quality and realistic prices – reader take note.” When the time is right, we hope you’ll come to visit us and delight in sampling the fruits of Andrew’s passionate labors.”
— Bion Rice, host and co-creator of “Two Glasses In”
ABOUT ANDREW MURRAY
We’re all given an endless number of choices in life, about which direction to go or what path we want to follow. In the case of Andrew Murray, the world of wine would have really missed out on his spectacular creations should he have chosen to become a paleontologist as planned. Lucky for us, when given this choice, Andrew ultimately left UC Berkeley behind for a new kind of study, Syrah.
After getting his hands dirty with an internship in Australia, Andrew returned to the states where he earned a bachelor’s degree in viticulture and enology from UC Davis’ renowned wine program and founded his eponymous Santa Ynez winery and vineyard.
Andrew’s focus and dedication to his craft have culminated in what Robert Parker, Jr. calls, “…one of the shining stars in the Santa Barbara firmament.” This perennially youthful perfectionist has been named ‘Tastemaker of the Year’ by Food and Wine Magazine, as well as, ‘One of the most fearsome talents in food and wine.’ Still, despite myriad accolades, Andrew remains the same modest, approachable, contemplative man he was when he first embarked to Australia back in 1992. He is eternally committed to vinicultural ‘Kaizen’ – the unrelenting pursuit of continuous improvement.
Join us for the final episode of “Two Glasses In” Season 1, and taste alongside as we discuss with Andrew Murray his wisdom, evolution, passion, and unflagging love affair with Rhône varieties that has only since grown in his 20 years of winemaking.
