The Scholium Project, California

Back in the early 2000s, before anyone outside of a handful of cult Napa producers was looking seriously at bottling the historic old single vineyards of California, Abe Schoener started producing a single vineyard, oxidative, natural, skin fermented Sauvignon Blanc from an old, low yielding site on Sonoma Mountain. He was ahead of his time. The Scholium Project is the result of that work which stretches back over twenty years. Prior to that Abe had caught the wine making bug totally by accident, having travelled West to study vine physiology largely out of an interest stemming from his background as a classics scholar and professor. We are very glad that he took that trip.
