Fathers & Daughters Cellars
We’re embarking on a multi-generational adventure, exploring three of the best things in life: fathers, daughters, and wine.
Fathers + Daughters Cellars represents a collaborative and multigenerational effort of the “fathers and daughters” in our family: patriarch Kurt Schoeneman, owner of the Anderson Valley’s storied Ferrington Vineyard; his daughter (and my wife), Sarah; myself; our daughter, Ella; and my older daughter, Taylor.
The harvest of the first vintage in 2012 coincided with the birth of our daughter, Ella. In fact, at just 8 weeks old and awake at 4:00 a.m., Ella joined us out in the field as we sorted the Pinot fruit being dumped into the bins.
Much like wine, relationships mature and evolve over time, and the relationship between a father and daughter, like the fruit from our family’s vineyard, is both singular and special. Our collaboration is a labor of love with the ultimate goal being the production of small quantities of fine wine and the creation of a legacy business that can be passed down through the generations of our family.
