SALINAS, California – January 4, 2018 – Scheid Family Wines announced today that Young’s Market Company will manage distribution of its wines throughout California. Effective immediately, Young’s will sell Scheid’s full portfolio of wines, including: Scheid Vineyards, District 7, Metz Road, Ranch 32, VDR, Stokes’ Ghost, GIFFT, Ryder Estate, and other exceptional Monterey County wines.

Scheid Family Wines was founded in 1972 when Al Scheid planted his first vineyards in Monterey County. Today, the grapes-to-glass family business owns 11 estate vineyards along a 70-mile stretch of the Salinas Valley.
