It all started with this website… and a bottle of Pinot Noir.

Wild fermentation wines are our passion. Pinot Noir is our obsession.

Hedonistic. Intense aroma. Gorgeous color. Incredible flavor. BIG. That’s how people describe our wines.

Schermeister Winery makes limited-production wild fermentation wines from Napa Valley and Sonoma County, 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 our favorite varietals to our repertoire, but our first love is undoubtedly Pinot Noir.

Try our wines by visiting our tasting room in Glen Ellen,  scheduling a private tour with our winemaker,
or by joining the
Magnus Vinum Society.
