The man who made this wine, Abe Schoener, used to teach college students ancient philosophy. Now, after a midlife career change, he runs the Scholium Project, a winery rooted in the philosophical believe that only be experimenting at the precipice of disaster can we challenge our understanding of what wines can be--and create new ones. So while most of the wine industry sits on its hands, constrained by orthodoxy and the bottom line, Schoener, forty-nine, explores the outer limits of each wine's microbiological potential.
-Robert Willey in Esquire Dec. 2010 

Sir, I would like to try your wine.
