Scheid Vineyards has been farming wine grapes in Monterey County since 1972. We service an array of winery clients up and down the coast of California with 13 distinct vineyard properties from Soledad down to Hames Valley. One principle has remained constant throughout our company's 30 years in business ... our commitment to delivering what our clients want. This commitment brings our vineyard team and winery client together to realize the common goal of producing outstanding wines.
Scheid Vineyards Inc. is a leading independent vineyard, controlling 5,600 acres of vineyards along California's central coast. The company, the first vineyard not owned by a winery to be publicly traded in the United States, produces 17 varieties of premium wine grapes, supplying more than 30 wineries. Scheid Vineyards' most important grape varieties are Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah. The company produces a small amount of wine under its own label, approximately 5,000 cases a year, to showcase the quality of its wines. Scheid Vineyards contracts with wineries, usually under long-term agreements, to grow wine grapes according to the wineries' specifications. The company is managed and majority-owned by the Scheid family.
