Driven Cellars

Driven to Higher Standards
Driven to go beyond that next curve and push your passions to the next level
Driven by the love of family and friends
Wines that are worth the drive!


Schmitz 24 Brix Wines

24 Brix is a family-owned winery who is committed to the old-world style of wine making. We purchase grapes from all northern and central California appellations such as Lake County, Livermore Valley, and Paso Robles to name a few to create our fine wines within the walls of our Barrel Room.

We follow natural wine making methods and gentle harvesting practices minimizing the bruising, bringing only the finest fruit to the winery. We harvest at or close to 24 BRIX, the natural sugar level we feel is the optimal ripeness that dramatically influences the wines quality and flavors. 

We ferment the grapes with naturally occurring vineyard native yeast, which imparts more complexity and richness to the wine. We then use our passion to handcraft food-friendly, balanced elegant fine wines, which make your taste buds ask for more!

We are excited to share our wines with you!
