In 1988, Fred Schrader was a thriving dealer in the world of art and antiques when his good friend and Christie’s auctioneer, Brian Cole, invited him to the Napa Valley Wine Auction, a newly formed charity event. A lover of wine and adventure, Fred happily accepted the invitation and soon found himself enjoying delicious wines while spending time with some of the valley’s most notable founders. Amazingly, this weekend getaway evolved into a 25-year love affair with the Napa Valley as well as launched his career in the wine industry. Schrader Cellars has come to be acknowledged as one of the great icons of Napa Valley. Their wines have earned a cult following in the USA, and the world over. Critics alike shower these wines with acclaim and Da Capo is proud to represent this prestigious portfolio.
