Visit Schug

Welcome to our Winery

Nestled on a hilltop in the midst of our Estate Vineyard in Carneros, the Schug Winery exhibits the rich heritage of our family. The post-and-beam architecture reminiscent of the Rhine River Valley, the rolling hillsides, and underground barrel-aging caves provide a truly unique and unforgettable setting for a tasting of our elegantly-styled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


Dear Schug Friends & Family

In accordance with CA directives, we are closing down hospitality at both the winery and our downtown tasting room effective immediately.  We will reach out when we are able to host tastings again.

In the meantime, keep a lookout for a new series of weekly offers from our cellar that we are making available in lieu of being able to host guests.  Wines purchased online can be picked up at the winery, simply give us a call and pull up.  We’ll load the wine directly into your trunk to minimize exposure.

While this is a challenging time for all of us, we hope we can continue to bring joy into your life through the wines we make and the stories we share.  Thanks for your continued support.
