Michael Scholz is St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery's winemaker. Originally from Australia, Michael is from the 6th generation to grow up on his family's vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Michael comes to St. Supéry from Wattle Creek, a Sonoma property in Alexander Valley. Scholz is not a newcomer to the Napa Valley or St. Supéry. He previously served as the winemaker at St. Supéry from 1996 to 2001 before returning again in 2009. During his tenure, he created the distinctive style that has made St. Supéry the benchmark producer of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The Cabernet Sauvignons Michael created for St. Supéry garner critical acclaim from top industry publications including Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. Enologist and consultant, Michel Rolland says, "Michael Scholz is on my list of great winemakers from around the world."
