McMinnville Remy Drabkin knew she wanted to be a winemaker at 8 years old. By 14 she was working her first grape harvest and by 17, with three harvests under her belt, she was studying winemaking abroad. Remy’s Old World Style philosophy developed under the guidance of Oregon wine industry pioneers and was informed by the Italian families around which she was raised. Her eponymous Remy Wines and Three Wives Wines started in 2006, baR (pronounced R bar) opened in 2011 and in 2017 she opened her second location at the family’s vineyard in the Dundee Hills. In 2020, Remy launched a new series of wines dedicated to iconic wines from around the world – she calls these her playing card series. In addition to being the Winemaker and General Manager of the winery, Remy is in her 10th year of public service. Currently dually elected to the McMinnville City Council and serving as it’s President she also chairs the McMinnville Affordable Housing Commission and is the liaison to the newly formed Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force. She was recently appointed by the Governor as a Director on the Oregon Wine Board where she serves on the Education Committee. In 2020 Remy co-founded Wine Country Pride, bringing Pride celebrations to rural Oregon and creating scholarships and learning opportunities for her community at large. Remy continually invests in building a diverse, equitable and inclusive community.
