Fathers + Daughters Cellars Announce Their 2019 Ella’s Reserve


February 16, 2024 –Fathers + Daughters Cellars is thrilled to announce that their 2019 Ella’s Reserve, Ferrington Vineyard, Anderson Valley, California was recognized as the best Pinot Noir at the 2023 San Francisco International Wine Competition, held in December 2023, and one of the most important wine competitions in the world. The SFIWC Judging Panel described the wine as “A captivating tasting experience with rich, deep spice notes and flavors that add warmth and complexity to the palate. The spice elements contribute to a depth of flavor, creating a memorable and indulgent profile.”

The winery’s label celebrates the love between a father and a daughter and is the passion project of two dads and three daughters. Guy Pacurar and his wife, Sarah, started Fathers + Daughters with Sarah’s dad, Kurt Schoeneman, the owner of the Anderson Valley’s storied Ferrington Vineyard where F+D Cellars sources much of their fruit, and Guy’s older daughter, Taylor. The birth of Sarah and Guy’s daughter, Ella, in 2012 inspired them to create a label celebrating the special bond that exists between fathers and daughters. They have been producing award-winning wines in small batches ever since, with the help of winemaker Phillip Baxter. Together, they carefully craft and ferment each wine using old-world techniques. Like the relationship between a father and daughter, these wines will continue to evolve as they mature.
