Money Pit Cellars
Scott Stefishen is an award winning winemaker whose passion from superior wines has taken him to a variety of wine regions around the world. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Scott discovered his passion for wine while tasting his way through the European wine regions including France, Italy and Germany. Scott honed his craft an Australian University earning degrees in Oenology (Winemaking), Viticulture and Business; Margaret River and Curtin, Western Australia. He earned several prestigious awards and he and his wife welcomed their first child, a son before returning to Canada in 2007. Continuing to follow his dream, Scott moved his young family to the Okanagan, the wine area of British Columbia, where he worked at several prominent wineries in positions ranging from cellar hand, to assistant winemaker, to head winemaker and consultant. During this time, Scott continued to garner awards for the wines he created for these and other wineries. After adding a daughter to his family, Scott with his wife as his biggest cheer leader decided to start his own winery in order to step away from large commercial wineries and focus on his family and the ART to winemaking.
