Scheid Family Wines Announces Results of Sauvignon Blanc Trials

March 15, 2019

Scheid Family Wines presented the results of their Thiol Production Trials at the WiVi Central Coast event on March 13, 2019 at the Paso Robles Event Center. SFW's presentation was conducted by Casey DiCesare, Assistant Winemaker and Enologist; Dave Terry, Viticulturist; and Jonathan Masse, Lab Manager. Each trial was designed to identify best practices on a commercial scale to advance the quality and stylistic diversity of Sauvignon Blanc by targeting the enhancement of thiols. SFW also looked to expand the aroma profile of Sauvignon Blanc in order to create a larger 'spice rack' of flavors and aromas for blending purposes
