Welcome to the scholium project

It is an amazing time: We have established a new home, in a certain sense our first, on the edge of the Los Angeles River.  We are have been nomads for so long-- winemakers working within others' walls; Scythians on trackless steppes, with our world on backs. Now, we have our own abode-- but not in the country, not in the midst of vines. In a corrugated steel cathedral, in the historic grape-growing and winemaking district of a great city. A return, and an amazing new beginning. A rebirth in the city.


Come visit us; see what we do. The tasting room will be open in the Spring, once the permits come through. But you may reach out to us and schedule a tour; get here at the beginning. We will make our space a special home for our friends and supporters. Tastings will all be by appointment; many special activities will be offered: lectures, symposia, guest chefs hosting small dinners. To gain entrance to these events, you must become a member of the winery. You have come to the right place.

tastings!

[I am steadfastly keeping this somewhat out-of-date description on the site. Preserving traces of our exuberant innocence.]

As often as possible, we host you. We pour wines. Rarely ours alone. How can we welcome you without the presence of our friends?

Some tastings are dinners. Some tastings are actually dance parties. Read carefully.

olive oils

For years, we have made a few gallons of superb and super-fresh olive oil from olives planted and dry-farmed by the Tenbrinks around their winery in Suisun Valley. There is something really special about the very dry growing conditions, the careful farming, and the 20  varieties of olives planted by the Tenbrinks.
 
We have decided to focus on freshness in our oil-- on something analogous to the acidity and florality in Riesling. So we harvest early and press the olives right away. The result is an oil  deeply and brightly green in color. There is no bitterness or unripeness. It is truly not like any other oil.
