Scherrer Winery: winery information
Winemaker: Fred Scherrer
Owner/winemaker Fred Scherrer completed his technical training at U.C. Davis and then came back to the "real world" to learn where, when, how, and if to apply science to the art of winemaking. This real world experience included making wine at Dehlinger for 10 years. Fred began making Zinfandel from his father's vineyard in 1991 as he continued his "day job" as winemaker at Dehlinger. In 1997, Fred was able to expand production to include Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. This expansion included making the winery a full time occupation in 1998 and moving into its current location in an insulated metal building near Sebastopol.
Annual Production: 5,000 cases
