Adam Marti

Owner and wine maker Georg continues a long tradition of family fermenting adventures.  Over 150 years ago his great-great grandfather, August Schell established the August Schell Brewing Company in New Ulm Minnesota, today's second oldest family owned brewery in the U.S.  Georg spent most of his early career working for his father, then president of the brewery.  Following the family’s fermentation legacy, in 1999 Georg and his oldest son Adam pursued wine making studies at Purdue University Heartland Wine School, with focus on Midwest varietals and northern climate wine making techniques.

Georg has received local, regional, and national recognition with Morgan Creek Vineyard wines. His wines were selected and served at the International Slow Food Wine Pavillion in San Francisco and at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City. His wines have been exclusively served for the Minnesota Pork Producers Taste of Elegance chefʼs competition from 2003 -2008. Annually for the past 10 years Georg has team taught with Chef Kim Ernest of Kimʼs Cuisine a Gourmet Cooking series entitled Celebrating Food & Wine. Georg has hosted the annual Wine Makerʼs Dinner at Morgan Creek Vineyards since 1999 and designed the food & wine menu with Chef Ernest.

A classical pianist and accomplished performer, Georg is as passionate about music as he is wine making. He and  Paula live at the winery in Cambia Township along the Morgan Creek.
