About This Producer


The Scholium Project, made by Abe Schoener, pushes the envelope of expectation in wines, producing esoteric varieties from somewhat obscure vineyards througout northern California. Schoener, who completed his graduate work in Ancient Greek Philosophy, concentrated on Homer. His label's name translates to "school, schooling" from Greek, and signifies an undertaking for the sake of learning, paralleling his winemaking journey. Schoener took a sabbatical from teaching in 1998 to work as an intern at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley before moving on to work in the cellars of Luna. He then began the Scholium Project in 2004, entitling wines using proprietary names rather than varieties. In the cellar, Schoener allows his wines to take their own natural course by leaving them undisturbed in the barrel, not sulfuring or topping off - instead he allows the fermentation to develop a ripeness particular to wine, not fruit. Scholium Project wines are extremely limited in production.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Gris


In France, this dry, crisp variety is known as Pinot Gris, while the Italians know it as Pinot Grigio. The two countries produce their own distinct styles, from crisp and light in northern Italy's Veneto, to the rich, opulent, and honeyed versions in France's Alsace. Believed to be a mutant clone of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris' (gris meaning grey in French) grapes possess a brownish-pink hue that gives some wines a pinkish tint. There are a bevy of synonyms for Pinot Gris depending on where it is grown. Typical descriptors for Pinot Gris include pear, apple, melon, pepper and arugula.
