Schug Winery

About Us

Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery produces wines nuanced with tradition and elegance, led by the vision of third generation vintner, Axel Schug, and Sonoma born winemaker Michael Cox. 

The winery was established to produce graceful and elegant Pinot Noirs from Sonoma’s celebrated hills in the Carneros Appellation. Winemaker Michael Cox joined the winery in 1995 and remains dedicated to continuing founder Walter Schug’s long legacy of crafting subtle and age-worthy wines. 

With the passing of founders Walter and Gertrud the desire to create wonderful wines at the Family Vineyards continues on. Since 1980 and the birth of the very first SCHUG label, a strong legacy developed that is now being passed on to grandchildren in the Schug Family.
