Scheid, executive vice president of Scheid Family Wines. “As winegrape growers at heart, we are extremely focused on sustainably farming our land for quality and being fully-integrated from grapes to glass. We are excited about the opportunity to produce Mō zāik and bring our estate grown wines to the clientele of Benchmark.” 

Scheid says, “Our traditions of family, sustainability, outstanding value and world-class wines are a natural fit with Benchmark’s goal of excellence in global hospitality.”
