If you are a guest in one of the best American restaurants, you have a good chance of encountering a wine from Shafer .
A talent from the publishing industry
The winery is one of the best in California and was founded by John Shafer, in whose hands it still is today. For those who still lack proof of the high quality, Shafer wines are always rewarded with 90 and more of the coveted Parker points.
With the first Shafer wine already several prices collected
Actually, John Shafer was a successful publisher and had a good life and his own family. After more than 20 years in publishing, however, he grew tired of it and longed for a change. He moved his family to Napa Valley, and started his own winery there. He took over an existing winery with just one acre of land. However, this was quickly completely replanted by Shafer and his family, and new terraces were also created. In 1978, the time had come and the first wine of the Shafer winery came on the market. It was a Cabernet Sauvignon. Even this first wine was very well received by the people and even received several awards at the first go. John Shafer felt encouraged in his talent and quickly bought more and more land and also cultivated new grape varieties. As a result, the winery today has quite a wide range of different wines.
Sustainability also at Shafer Winery
The high quality of the wines mentioned at the beginning does not come by chance. In the cultivation of the wine nothing is left to chance and intensive care and consideration is given to the vines. However, they never forget the aspect of sustainability and also pay attention to ecological production. Each wine produced at the Shafer winery is an exclusive product and meets the highest quality standards. The first wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, has managed to be one of Shafer 's most popular wines even today. Right after that comes the Merlot. But at the end of the day, you can decide which Shafer wine you want to drink, because they all offer high quality.
And these are the cultivated grape varieties of Shafer:
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Petit Shiraz
