We are thankful for the vision and dedication that drove Gary to start both Archery Summit and its sister winery Pine Ridge. With his love for classic French wines and intense passion, he created two iconic properties that are outstanding representations of their appellations. At Archery Summit, which he started in 1993, he brought Oregon Pinot Noir to a new level of quality and respect within the wine world. And at Pine Ridge, what began as four acres within the Stags Leap District in 1978 is now over 220 of the most prestigious vineyards in Napa Valley.
Gary was admired and respected by his extended family within the wine industry and will be missed by all those who were touched by his legacy. Many are committed to honoring his vision going forward by continuing to produce wines that are of exceptional quality. Please join me in raising a glass of Archery Summit to the memory of Gary Andrus.
