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.

  • Just had a bottle of the 2012 Alatre red blend. WOW what a great bottle of wine. All of the big fat things we love. Really wish the bottle had been much bigger as it seemed it was gone too quickly.

  • Alapay Cellars Stolpman Vineyard Syrah 2007

    Snoothrank:

    92 points.Dark, deep, and faintly smoky, this wines nose is pretty impressive from the very start. Peppered black currant and chocolate covered licorice play with mixed kitchen spices and tons of fleeting elements of complexity that seem to erupt from the glass like tiny bits of shrapnel.Delicately ripe and sweet, with just a hint of jamminess, ...

There is a wild honey tone, some exotic wood components, potpourri, raspberry, and herbs de Provence. A spin in the glass brings out some rose wood, red licorice, and dark fruit and floral notes.This wine is definitely sweet, but i... Read More

  • Alapay Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Alapay Cellars is a hidden gem of a winery in the Central Coast of California in the town of Avila Beach. This Cabernet is elegant and silky. The tannins are softened to release the flavors of the fruit without overpowering the hint of pepper and spice. The winemaker, Scott, is fantastic and makes you feel right at home. He treats his customers ... Read More
