ABOUT US Driftwood Estate Winery is owned and operated by Gary Elliott. The vineyard, planted in 1998, is 20 acres with 18 acres currently in production with 6 grape varieties. We received our winery license in July of 2002 and did our first commercial grape crush with the August 2002 harvest. Our first commercial wine was bottled in February 2003 and we opened the winery to the public on March 1, 2003. Our first year production totaled about 1,200 cases, which included 5 different wines. We now produce over 5,000 cases.
