Merry Chrismahannukwanzaka! Say goodbye to 2016 and hello to new wines! Celebrate the holidays and spice up your wine selection with Waxwing Cellars.

The Winemaker Scott Sisemore has over 23 year’s experience in the Northern California wine industry. After working at many commercial wineries, Scott decided to stay at home and develop his own wines. He chose to focus varietals he knows and loves, specifically Pinot Noir and Syrah from the Sonoma Coast.

The Wines With limited-production Pinot Noir, Syrah, Riesling and Rosé, Waxwing Cellars focuses on handcrafted, ultra-small-lot wines to preserve the quality and deliver delicious varietals from the Sonoma Coast.
