Jason and Hilary Driscoll are the couple behind Driscoll Wine Company. The proud first-generation vintners manage two labels: Hibou and Tilth. Jason is the winemaker; Hilary handles the business end. Jason had his sights set on becoming a chef, but his passion was soon diverted when he fell in love with the wine industry. While staging at a number of restaurants, Jason earned a living by working at a few wineries as a cellar hand and eventually, assistant winemaker. He learned hands-on at several stops, and with winery hours being more conducive to raising a family than those of the restaurant business, the couple decided to start their own label.

Tilth Wines features a lineup of very reasonably priced, handcrafted wines made from fruit sourced from sustainable vineyards in Napa Valley, Lodi, Contra Costa, Mendocino, and Sonoma's Russian River Valley. The lineup includes Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Carignan, Syrah, and Pinot Noir: all fermented with as little intervention as possible, all aged in some new, mostly old oak barrels.

Titlh's Zindfandel is a blend of 85% Zinfandel, 7.5% Syrah and 7.5% Carignan. The Zinfandel was sourced from two vineyards: Del Barba Vineyard in Contra Costa and Cherryhouse Vineyard in Lodi. The Syrah and Carignan were sourced from Kobler Vineyard in Russian River Valley and Poor Ranch in Mendocino, respectively. After fermentation, the wine is aged for seventeen months in 20% new French and American oak. This Zinfandel pours a deep reddish-purple and a few gentle swirls release aromas of bright red fruits — raspberries and cranberries — and freshly-baked blueberry pie. One sip envelops the palate with lush flavors of fruit and spice, but those rich flavors are balanced by an uplifting acidity that leads to a surprisingly fresh finish. This wine is a perfect companion to all your guitly pleasure dishes... BBQ sauce-slathered ribs and chicken fresh off the grill, meat lover's pizza or a double cheeseburger topped with bacon jam.
