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.

2018 Sonoma Coast
“From the southern end of the cooler vineyards along the maritime-influenced Sonoma Coast, this exciting white shines with aromas of Mandarin orange, taffy, and honeysuckle. Aged sur-lie for three months in neutral casks, personality rises out of the glass. “

2017 Estate Grown
“Impressive dried-lemon and grapefruit aromas here, as well as light hazelnut and chamomile notes. The palate has a swathe of smooth and fleshy fruit appeal and delivers a smoothly honed and supple impression. Drink or hold.”
2017 Sonoma Coast
“A strikingly youthful and complex nose with fine red fruit, laced with rosemary and saucisson. The palate is also carrying a herbal thread and delivers plenty of ripe red cherries with a decidedly hemp-like, herbal note to close.”
“This has attractive fresh flowers and blueberries, as well as cherries and earthy, black-tea notes. The palate houses open-knit and approachable tannins that deliver a bold build of fleshy tannin. Drink or hold.”
2014 Heritage Reserve
“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.”
