Schorr Lake Vineyards officially began in 1994 when we planted the first section of our 7 acre vineyard. We now have a total of 16 varieties of grapes. We also grow our own blackberries. The vineyard could never have become a reality without the efforts of many friends and family members. Although a tremendous amount of hours have gone into its' creation, it has been a labor of love and fun for all those who have been involved.
The winery became bonded in September, 1997 and opened in October, 1998. Paul, however, has been practicing his wine-making skills for the past 18 years. The winery also has been an effort of friends and family and remains so today. New friends are always welcome to try their hand at picking grapes, wine making, bottling or any of the many other chores involved in achieving our finished product.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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.
