Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers. Walter Schug's reputation blossomed during his tenure as Winemaker for Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the 1970s, where he made California's first proprietary Bordeaux-Style blend, Insignia. This was the first wine to ever achieve a 99 point rating by noted wine critic Robert Parker Jr.

Drawing on his long experience in the production of fine wines in both Europe and California, Walter set up the winery in the cool, marine climate of the Carneros Appellation. Here he could focus on the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals that had always been close to his heart.

15 years ago, Michael Cox came on board at Schug as winemaker. Schug continues to turn out classic, elegant wines that reflect a traditional style of winemaking.
