The history of Scharffenberger Cellars begins in 1981 in the heart of Mendocino’s Anderson Valley. Situated only miles from the coastal influences of the Pacific Ocean, Scharffenberger Cellars also enjoys the deep soils and sunshine with in the protected valley. Originally founded by John Scharffenberger, the winery entered a new chapter as a member of the Roederer Collection in 2004. Today winemaker Jeffrey Jindra continues to craft without compromise delicious sparkling wines that showcase the unparalleled uniqueness of Mendocino County terroir.
Sustainability is at the heart of every decision. Our commitment to preserving and nourishing our land runs deep and has been a guiding principle since the early days. In 1992, Scharffenberger Cellars granted 63 acres to the Anderson Valley Land Trust. Today, the entirety of our 120-acre estate is sustainably farmed and Fish Friendly Farming certified.
