Fred Schrader founded Schrader Cellars in 1998 with the aim of crafting exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Renowned for superior vineyard sourcing and the talent of winemaker Thomas Brown, Schrader has earned twenty-seven 100-point scores from prestigious critics including The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Jeb Dunnuck, and James Suckling.
For over a decade, Schrader Cellars has produced benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from prestigious Napa Valley vineyards, notably Beckstoffer To Kalon, Beckstoffer Georges III, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, and the newly added Monastery Block To Kalon Vineyard. Thomas Brown, originally from South Carolina, found his winemaking calling after exploring French, Italian, and Northern Californian wine regions. After meeting Fred Schrader in 2000, Brown, despite having not yet made Cabernet Sauvignon, was hired for his passion, natural ability, and dedication. Together, they’ve created a portfolio of uncompromising Cabernet Sauvignons, showcasing Thomas’s visionary winemaking talent.
