Michael Scholz, Winemaker

Originally from Australia, Michael is 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 was previously winemaker for the Napa Valley winery from 1996 to 2001. 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 also garnered critical acclaim with five Cabernets securing 90+ scores from the Wine Spectator. Oenologist and consultant, Michel Rolland says, “Michael Scholz is on my list of great winemakers from around the world.”
