Fred Schrader founded the winery in 1998 with the goal of producing the best possible Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. The winery works with grapes from the best vineyards within Napa Valley such as Beckstoffer To Kalon, Las Piedras and Georges III. In addition, these grapes are handled by the very talented winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.
Over the course of its existence, the winery has already received 100-point ratings on 35 wines from critics such as The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Jeb Dunnuck and James Suckling. As you can see, Fred has clearly fulfilled his goal and vision with the promise of producing great wines for years to come.
