The inaugural 2012 Fathers & Daughters Cellars Ferrington Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir and 2013 Fathers & Daughters Cellars Ferrington Vineyard Anderson Valley Sauvignon Blanc were released on Father’s Day, June 21, 2015.
Bay area builder Kurt Schoeneman and his daughter Sarah began a search in 1996 for appropriate land to grow wine grapes. The search ended in the discovery of Ferrington Vineyard, a parcel in the Anderson Valley just outside the town of Boonville that had been allowed to go fallow. The vineyard was first planted in 1969 by Balvern Vineyards who acquired the property when it was part of the much larger Rankin sheep ranch. Dr. Richard Ferrington bought the property in the 1980s and turned it over to the Schoenemans.
Since acquiring Ferrington Vineyard the Schoenemans brought the vineyard into prominence, gathering a reputation for producing premium quality grapes used by many highly lauded wineries including Arista, Breggo Cellars, FEL, Flowers, Harmonique, Londer Vineyards, MacPhail, Schramsberg, Twomey,and Williams- Selyem.
