We found this place only by recommendation. It's a cute little winery hidden up the mountain a bit and off the beaten path. I highly recommend you stop in. Great Pinot niors and Chardonnay!

Visited for a wine tasting on August 24th. Although Schug is small in comparison to other wineries in the region, they produce wonderful wines, specializing in Pinot Noirs. We tasted 5 wines for $10.00(waived if you buy 2 bottles). I especially enjoyed the 2011 Heritage...More

Got there an early Friday afternoon, lunched in the yard with an excellent wine, went to the tasting room, tasted some even more excellent and bought some of the best! Go there now!

Worth making your way off the main streets to visit this place. Their pinot is excellent and it was even better to drink a glass outside with live music. **Keep in mind they don't have space for parties larger than 5 unless you pre-book.**
