History:

Alapay Cellars co-owner and winemaker, Scott Remmenga was raised in Santa Barbara where his father was a publisher. Scott moved to Avila Beach while attending Cal Poly. He graduated from Cal Poly in 1986 with a degree in Graphic Communications. Soon after that he opened a printing company in San Luis Obispo in partnership with his father. Business flourished and soon The Printing Connection, as it was known, had carved out a niche printing labels for United States wineries near and far. The pair sold the business in 1999. That's when Scott made the decision to invest his heart and soul in making wine.

"The idea of making wine was something I'd had in the back of my mind for some time, but I was really helped along by a couple of really experienced winemakers who have been great mentors. " Scott recognized the importance of buying the highest quality fruit possible -- no small feat when you are new to the industry, but by spending a lot of time meeting growers, observing their farming methods and developing relationships based on trust and understanding, Scott has been able to purchase fruit from some of the central coast's premier vineyards.

He used his own dream, a lot of research and the help of those more experienced in the field to build a plan. Two years later, in the Fall of 2001, he released 1,200 cases of his debut wine; Viognier, Pinot Noir and Syrah.
