Description

Owner and winemaker, Scott Schultz, found his passion for wine when moved to Napa from Chicago in 2007. Having had extensive experience in the restaurant business, he switched gears upon his arrival in California to lead the wine program at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. Working a harvest and as a cellar master are a few of Scott’s many achievements. He now works with Wind Gap, Ryme Cellars, and formerly Arnot-Roberts. They all share both a winemaking space and similar philosophies in discovering unconventional beauty. Scott Schultz does what he loves, and he does it well.

Jolie-Laide is California’s most boutique natural winery, producing less than 500 cases of wine per year. They use the Sonoma Coast’s cool-climate to grow grapes native to more remote regions of France, like the Jura and Rhône. Though the grapes they use are many, their winemaking method is simple: grapes are picked by hand, foot crushed, and aged in old, neutral oak. The result is uncommon flavors that are bright, wild, and pure.

“Made from two separate parcels, the higher elevation Halcyon Vineyard, and the lower Hawks Butte Vineyard, this is pure Syrah. The grapes are foot-trodden, whole cluster fermented, and see 10 months in neutral French oak. This medium-bodied dry red has dark fruit, herbaceousness, floral and woodsy aromas.
