Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily

The Scholium Project

Abe Schoener left his career as a professor at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD, inspired by his love of organic gardening and a growing fanaticism for wine. While on sabbatical in San Francisco he made the leap, enrolling in viticulture classes and interning at a winery.

Abe specializes in grapes and vineyards that many winemakers would overlook, and using techniques that defy most commonly-held beliefs of how wines should be made. His wines are proudly experimental and unique, and are designed to provoke thought as you sip.
