Why the thumbprint?
That “thumbprint wine” was a hit and more was requested by everyone. Following the first release in 1995, each successive thumbprint vintage brought more demand. Scott's first commercial vintage in 2000 sold out in fewer than six months following its release. A wine club was established and thumbprint cellars became wildly popular.
thumbprint cellars continues to leave its mark on Sonoma County's Wine Industry. Our grapes are sourced from local growers from Sonoma County’s Dry Creek, Knights, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. Each wine is a “snapshot” of the vineyard and vintage, telling a story about that special place and time. Scott crafts his vegan wines into 20 single vineyard varietals and 5 “infamous” blends, for a total annual production of fewer than 5,000 cases. Scott personally assures his thumbprint on each bottle represents the wines unique identity and artisan quality expected of a fine wine.
In 2004, thumbprint opened as the seventh tasting room in historic downtown Healdsburg. During our 13 years here we have developed deep community ties. "Giving back to our community has been a major goal since day 1!" explains Scott. We will continue to support local non-profits, schools, and other small businesses throughout our community.
