Scott then ventured into the world of winemaking entrepreneurship, creating his first label in 1999, S.P. Drummer, a highly acclaimed Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend, then Rumpus in 2007, focusing on Sonoma Coast wines. He worked diligently, entering new markets and selling wine through distributors, which brought initial success, but proved to be very time consuming and taxing.

In 2013, Angels funded Scott’s third label, Rox, then took on his other 2 brands a few years later. Because of your support, his career has taken off and flourished. Scott – who dubs himself a “one-man show” – now has three labels – Rumpus, Rox and S.P. Drummer – the latter which is a throwback to his drumming days in Williamsburg. Since his first internships in Sonoma County, Scott has studied Sonoma’s appellations and investigated the best sites for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, like Petaluma Gap, Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. He’s also ventured into Napa Valley for Cabernet, Clarksburg for Petite Sirah and Tempranillo, and Argentina’s high-elevation vineyards for Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay

With Angel support, Scott’s making a diverse range of wines – his mom’s favorite Sauvignon Blanc, four distinctive Chardonnays, Napa and Sonoma Cabernets, California Petite Sirah and Tempranillo – plus a collection of wines from Argentina. His wines are one of a kind, just the way he likes them.
