Schrader Cellars

In Search of the Perfect Cabernet

Fred Schrader in the vineyards

Fred Schrader founded Schrader Cellars in 1998 with a goal of making the best Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon possible. Since then, the brand has gained renown for its incredible vineyard sourcing (Beckstoffer To Kalon, Las Piedras, and Georges III) and remarkably gifted winemaker, Thomas Brown. Since its inception, Schrader has achieved a total of thirty-five 100-point scores from the likes of The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Jeb Dunnuck, and James Suckling.

Formally an art dealer, Fred Schrader had long been searching for terroir that would allow him to producer high quality Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa - that search led Fred directly to the office of legendary grape grower W. Andrew Beckstoffer. The partnership began with a small selection of vine rows in the historic Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard - as the partnership great, so did the number of vines available to Schrader and now some of the finest blocks in To Kolan go into Schrader's wines.
