3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?
Fred Scherrer has been making wine for his family's winery since 1991. He grew up around wine, assisting his father and working the family’s Zinfandel vineyard in Alexander Valley. He later earned a degree in viticulture and enology from University California Davis and worked at Fieldstone, Greenwood Ridge and finally Dehlinger wineries. He assisted Tom Dehlinger at Dehlinger Winery, then took over the winemaking duties and stayed 10 years. It was here that he developed his winemaking principles – be patient, let the fruit speak, listen, touch lightly, watch closely, listen. This formula has worked well for him. Fred Scherrer is a modest, cerebral and a very grounded and practical vintner who crafts wines that reflect a similar personality of restraint, complexity and user friendliness.
