Monterey is Pinot Noir country. The land, weather and soil all conspire to create stunning Pinot Noirs that beautifully express their cool climate origin with vivid flavor and elegant structure. The vibrant ruby color of our Pinot Noir showcases intense flavors of wild strawberry, cherry, red raspberry and currant. Back notes of pomegranate, sweet vanilla and earthy herbal hints are framed by a quiet but strong acidity which supports the fully integrated fruit.

Winery Description

Located 120 miles south of San Francisco lies the deep Monterey Submarine Canyon.  This submarine canyon brings a constant upwelling of cold, nutrient rich waters to the surface of Monterey Bay, making it one of the richest and most biodiverse marine habitats in the world.  

This cold, upwelling water chills the air, which creates fog that flows down from Monterey Bay into the Salinas Valley, cooling the vineyards and giving Monterey  County the longest growing season of all of California’s famed viticultural districts.  This cool fog often lingers over the vineyards until mid-day. Then as the sun warms the valley floor, the fog burns off and the warm air rises, drawing in a cool, reliable ocean breeze over the vineyards and preventing the grapes from overheating in the hot California afternoon sun.  The cooler temperatures and longer growing season allow the grapes to ripen slowly and develop rich and intricate fruit flavors while preserving crucial acidity.

Scheid Vineyards has been growing high quality grapes in the middle of this viticultural sweet spot since 1972.
