The Carrier Family of Wines includes a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir ("The Mocker") and Chardonnay, and a Monterey Albarino. The wines are made in tribute to PDSA Dickin Medal recipient carrier pigeons who are recognized for outstanding acts of heroism and bravery in the armed forces.
Eben Drucker began learning about the wine business while attending UC Davis. This led him to take a job at a tasting room and add UC Davis and Extension wine courses to his studies. After graduation, he co-founded West Coast Wines which grew into a multimillion-dollar wine distribution house. He then sold his partnership in 2008, and began a consulting and marketing firm - Tova Beverage Group - to assist small wineries in distribution. In 2011, he co-founded Spotlight Brands, a sales and marketing company for small premium wineries in Callifornia. He launched Carrier Wines in 2013 after partnering with a Santa Lucia Highlands vineyard.
