ABOUT THE WINEMAKER

Companion was born out of the idea that delicious, terroir-driven, natural wine from California could be sold at a cost and in packaging that is accessible to all. This is an endeavor that celebrates Riesling, sunny days, the beach, the park, granite boulders, spicy food, and good friends. 

Pinot Gris Skin Contact wine was made by Scott Shultz of Jolie-Laide. Scott is a Chicago native who began his career by working front of the house in several top restaurants. Following a stint in Thomas Keller's Las Vegas Bouchon he made his way to the sister restaurant in Yountville. From there the logical step was out of the restaurant and into the cellar and in 2010 he took a position working for Pax Mahle. It was there he started experimenting with Trousseau Gris and Melon de Bourgogne and other more obscure varietals on his own.

Jolie-Laide’s wines are captivating because they are anything but typical: using lesser planted varietals like Gamay and Valdiguié grown on vineyards at the fringes of the typical wine regions. In style, his wines are made with minimal intervention and classic technique (whole-cluster, skin-fermented, foot tread) and each year brings a new label from artists that inspire him and seem to fit the vintage.
