A MULTI- GENERATIONAL
It all started with Ella. The birth of our daughter, Ella, in 2012 inspired us to create a label celebrating the special bond that exists between fathers and daughters. We’re fortunate that the other father in our family, our patriarch, Kurt Schoeneman, owns a prized place to grow grapes—Ferrington Vineyard—and has allowed us to source the majority of our fruit from this storied Anderson Valley vineyard.

“We’re not out to be the biggest, or even, well, big. The joy of this experiment is about constantly creating wines that surprise.”
“My father taught me what’s possible when you let the natural elements lead the way in growing grapes. We carry that tradition on.”
Father’s + Daughters + Phil
Since the beginning of Fathers + Daughters Cellars, we have enjoyed a close relationship with artisan Anderson Valley winemaker, Phil Baxter. Phil is a second generation winemaker following in the footsteps of his father. With hands-on learning in California winemaking as well as time spent honing his craft in Burgandy, France, Phil brings a unique touch to the creation of Fathers+Daughters wines.
