About the Winemaker
Scott Sisemore, proprietor and winemaker, has over 20 years of
experience in the Northern California wine industry. He learned
premium red wine techniques from jobs at Ravenswood Winery,
Rosenblum Cellars, and other highly respected California producers. He
has also made wine abroad in India and Chile. Most recently, before
founding Waxwing, Scott served as associate winemaker at Pelligrini
Family Vineyards. Scott earned a B.S. in microbiology from Oregon State
University and an M.S. in viticulture and enology from UC-Davis.
About Waxwing Wines
In 2006, Scott left his commercial winemaking job to stay home with his
newborn son. Using this as a chance to develop hand-crafted,
ultra-small-lot wines, Scott founded Waxwing Wine Cellars. He chose to
focus on the wine varietals that he knows and loves, particularly Pinot
Noir and Syrah from the Sonoma Coast.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
