Buzz Alert: St. Supery Welcomes New, Returning Winemaker

Emma Swain, president of St. Supéry Vineyards & Winery, announced today the appointment and return of Michael Scholz to winemaker for the the family-owned, estate winery. 

Scholz is not a newcomer to Napa Valley or St. Supéry. Next month, he returns to St. Supéry after serving as the winery's winemaker from 1996 to 2001. During his tenure, he created the distinctive style that made St. Supéry a benchmark producer of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (my fav!). The Cabernet Sauvignons he also helped create garnered acclaim with many securing 90 points and higher from Wine Spectator.
