Pacific Northwest native and former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe joins the Portland Business Journal for the Wednesday, March 20th Power Breakfast! After an outstanding career in the NFL with the Patriots, Bill and Cowboys, Drew set his sights on a successful post-career and purchased a vineyard in his hometown, Walla Walla, Washington.

In 2008 Drew and his wife launched Doubleback, a reference to his return back to home, as an estate-focused winery producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. He first started thinking about entrepreneurship seven or eight years into his career, once he started to recognize football wasnt going to last forever. While he initially dipped his toe into a couple of other ventures, including the coffee and oil and gas industries, wine quickly became his main focus.

Doubleback has four estate vineyards spanning 48 acres within the Walla Walla Valley each representing a unique soil, elevation or micro-climate. The differences help to naturally blend the wines to a higher level of quality and create a true experience of Walla Walla. In 2018 the winery broke ground on their second winery facility along with it’s inaugural vintage from the Flying B estate.

Over the past decade, Doubleback has earned high marks, and a spot on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list, for its Cabernet Sauvignon. While the number of cases produced has increased from 600 to about 2,500, the relatively modest bottle count and $97 price tag contributes to an aura of exclusivity.

That high-stakes competition, of course, was also a huge draw for Bledsoe. As he frames it, there are more individual bottles of wine than there are of any other product category in the world. With Doubleback competing against 50,000 other bottles, he knows he has to do every part of it right.

      Displaced New Englander. Love the Pats. Love wine. Plus my wife says I am a charming recovering introvert that welcomes opportunities to practice being social. Plus power breakfasts are the most important meal of the day.

      I’m a WSU Cougar fan and have been tracking Drew’s career for decades…and I make my own wine. Would love a chance to hear his story and possibly meet him. Thanks

    I am such a Drew Bledsoe fan. I always wished that the Seahawks would have picked him up when they had a chance. I didn’t know that he made wine so this would be so cool to go to.

    This would be a great opportunity to take my girlfriend out who’s from Massachusetts and loves her Patriots. She’s pretty keen on wine too!
