Fred Schrader, proprietor of renowned winery Schrader Cellars in the Napa Valley, has lived a life of true adventure.
Growing up in St. Petersburg, FL, Fred’s childhood consisted of racing in soap box derbies – a hobby that quickly evolved to racing Formula Ford cars and more recently Aston Martins. Later in life he played polo in the Dominican Republic, established himself as an avid collector and dealer in fine art and antiques, as well as developed his own line of cigars.
Fred’s greatest exploit proved to be the world of wine, a transition made when he attended his first Napa Valley Wine Auction in the early 1990’s. As the most critically acclaimed winery in American history, Schrader Cabernet Sauvignons have scored a combined total of ten perfect 100-point scores from renowned critics James Laube, Wine Spectator, and Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate.
With the equivalent of ten Academy Awards under his belt, Fred has truly established himself as the king of Cabernet. Today Schrader Cellars continues to define excellence in the industry, where Fred’s adventures have expanded to crafting world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in addition to his flagship wines.
