August Cellars is home to seven other wineries. August Cellars is the Host Winery. Started in 2002 by the Clarence Schaad family. We wanted to build a winery that would be a single footprint for several business. That way the equipment would be better utilized and small wineries would be able to make wine without having to build a building and purchase all the needed equipment.
