Our Story

Welcome To Schug

Founded in 1980, the Schug Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California’s most celebrated winemakers. Drawing on his experience in the production of fine wines in Germany and as founding Winemaker for Joseph Phelps in California, Walter and his wife Gertrud built the winery to focus on Pinot Noir. Nestled in the hills of the cool climate of the Carneros Appellation, the winery is dedicated to Walter’s original passion for graceful and elegant Pinot Noirs.

2019 Sonoma Coast
Sauvignon Blanc

“Opulent honeysuckle and stark white pear capture the nose with a vivid perfume. Sourced from the southern end of the Sonoma Coast from vineyards that add their own personality to this wine. Juicy pear and guava relish in a bright acidity. Exotic floral notes of gardenia and magnolia go creamy while white peach whets the palate and grapefruit peel zings on the finish.”
-Tasting Panel Magazine


2018 Estate Grown

“The 2018 Chardonnay Estate has an open-knit nose of quince, apples and pears with honey-nut nuances. The palate is light to medium-bodied with a good concentration of savory flavors, well-woven freshness and a long finish.”
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate


2018 Sonoma Coast
Pinot Noir

“The Schug family has made this exclusive parcel for the Society’s Exhibition Range. It’s a great buy, offering intense but not heavy flavours of red cherry liqueur and sweet oak spice, refreshing acidity and soft tannins.”


2018 Carneros
Pinot Noir

“Vibrant cherry, plum and currant flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins. Hints of hot stone emerge midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with cedar and spice accents and zesty minerality. Drink now through 2023.”
-Wine Spectator


2014 Heritage Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon

“The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Heritage Reserve gives up pronounced cassis, Black Forest cake, earth and herbs on the nose with touches of cigar box and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate gives good intensity and depth in the lively mouth with firm, grainy tannins and a long finish.”
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
