Schmidt Family Vineyards, owned by Judy and Cal Schmidt, began with a life-long dream of farming the land. Cal’s great love and passion for wine and wine making made grapes the obvious crop. Cal grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas. A successful businessman, he began taking classes in viticulture and wine making in his spare time. In 2000, the old Bennett Ranch on the fertile Kubli Bench was purchased and became the setting for what is now the Schmidt Family Vineyards. Vineyards of Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in 2001. The first vintage consisting of 300 cases, was produced in 2004 and released in 2006. The wines were very well received and quickly sold out. The 2005 harvest yielded about 1200 cases. We are now up to approximately 5,500 cases. New vineyards have been added, which include lesser known varietals such as Albarino, and Tempranillo, of Spanish origin. Other varietals include Barbera, an Italian varietal, and Malbec, a Bordeaux varietal. Along with the fertile vineyards, and a large picturesque pond, several acres of herb and flower gardens, gazebos, and walking paths have been created which are available for private events.
