Scheid Vineyards has said its newly constructed winery will be completed in time for the 2005 harvest and it is expected that the first load of grapes will be crushed in early September.

Scott D. Scheid, the company's president and CEO, said: "We are very pleased to announce that construction of the Scheid Winery is proceeding on schedule and we are confident that we will be ready in time for the upcoming harvest. The completion of this first phase will result in the capacity to crush approximately 10,000 tons of grapes. Scheid Winery is designed as a state-of-the-art facility with gentle and efficient fruit handling, superior sanitation, and sophisticated technology. We will operate both as a custom crush facility for present and future winery customers, as well as a winemaking facility for our own grape production."

In connection with the opening of Scheid Winery, Scheid Vineyards also announced several appointments to its winery team, as follows:

Buddy Masuda has been named winery general manager. Masuda was most recently at the Golden State Vintners facility in Soledad where he served as supervisor, process control manager, and senior winemaker for the past eight years.

Dave Nagengast continues as winemaker. Nagengast joined Scheid Vineyards in 2003 and has been in charge of supervising all of the wines at six different facilities for Scheid's wine contracts.

Ralph Mendez has joined Scheid Winery as cellar master whilst Chrissy Wittmann has joined Scheid Winery as assistant winemaker.
