Wild fermentation wines are our passion. Pinot Noir is our obsession.
Schermeister Winery makes limited production native fermentation wines in Napa Valley, California. We produce our wines in limited quantities in order to focus on quality. By committing to native fermentation, our wines remain free of lab-created yeasts and instead rely on the wild yeasts found in every vineyard we harvest from each year. By using this method, you are tasting the true nature of the vineyard and its unique terroir. Each harvest brings new and exciting varietals to our repertoire, but our first love is undoubtedly Pinot Noir. Try our wines by scheduling a private tour with our winemaker or join the Magnus Vinum Society.
Tasting Room Opening October 2018
We are excited to announce the opening of our tasting room in Glen Ellen, CA! Our space is located in the historic Jack London Village and is currently undergoing major remodel. When we open our doors this summer, you’ll be able to come in and try all of our current releases and library wines. Follow us on facebook to see the renovation process!
Scavenger Syrah is Coming Back
Our 2013 Scavenger sold out last year, but there’s more coming! We harvested 2 tons of Syrah fruit from the Tumbas Vineyard in the Sierra foothills for our 2016 vintage and it’s aging well in barrels now. Look for the release this fall. To help give back to our Mother Earth, 20% of all Scavenger sales benefit International Bird Rescue.
