Schmidt Family Vineyards is owned by Judy and Cal Schmidt and began with a dream of farming. Cal grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas. Though a successful businessman he longed to farm the land. He began taking classes in viticulture and winemaking. In 2000 the old Bennett Ranch on the fertile Kubli Bench was purchased and became the setting for what is now the Schmidt Family Vineyards.

Vineyards of Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in 2001. The first vintage consisting of 300 cases, was produced in 2004 and released in 2006. The wines were very well received and quickly sold out. The 2005 harvest yielded about 1200 cases. In 2006, production was up to 1700 cases. New vineyards are currently being added. These new vines will include lesser known varietals such as Albarino, of Spanish origin.

Along with the fertile vineyards, and a large picturesque pond, several acres of herb and flower gardens have been created which are available for private events. The tasting room is what we like to call understated elegance and is finished in a craftsmen style. This room is a very welcoming place to sit and enjoy the wines. Come and lift a glass!!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
