Wine Fellas, https://winefellas.com/about/: “The Wine Fellas saga starts with Benno Schoch, who in 1941 was already a major export activity and the very first to export California wines to Central and South America. . . . In 1946, his son, Napa Valley pioneer viticulturist Ivan Schoch, began managing Martin Stelling’s To Kalon Vineyard holdings — a property that is now widely considered the most valuable, historic vineyard in the Napa Valley. Well-respected in the field, he planted Hanzell Winery’s first vineyards for Ambassador James Zellerbach in Sonoma County, and advised Joseph Phelps in selecting some of his first iconic vineyard sites.” [Also describes later generations of the Schoch family, who are also involved in wine production.]

Nicholas Wayne “Nikko” Schoch, obituary; Published in Salt Lake Tribune on Aug. 11, 2006: “Nicholas (Nikko) Wayne Schoch 1948 – 2006. Nicholas (Nikko) Wayne Schoch, 58, passed away on August 5, 2006 in Salt Lake City, UT. He was born May 21, 1948 in St. Helena, CA, the son of Ivan and Barbara Schoch. Nikko grew up in the Napa Valley, attended high school in Sedona, AZ, and before he could finish college, was drafted into the Army in 1968. He was a conscientious objector so he became a medic in the service. Although he was against the Vietnam War and didn’t carry a gun, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Purple Heart, and Silver Star for his heroism while serving his country. His passion for peace and concern for the soldiers in Iraq, led to his involvement in Veterans for Peace, where he continued fighting against the war until his death. After the war he attended college at UC Davis where he met and married Bonnie Nye. They returned home to the Napa Valley, settling first in Angwin and then St. Helena. His first career was in the wine industry, where he enjoyed working at some of the great wineries, including Freemark Abbey and Shafer Winery. He then realized that his true calling was caring for others, so he used his experience as a Medic to return to school and pursue a career as a Psych Tech. He worked at St. Helena Hospital until he retired. His love of his two sons was strong. Although his oldest son Evan was disabled, he made it his quest to ensure that Evan didn’t miss any opportunities due to his disability. He would pack Evan on his back for hikes at the family cabin at Echo Lake so that Evan, along with his youngest son Galen, could enjoy a place that so often gave Nikko the peace and tranquility he needed. Echo is also where Nikko showed Galen how to fish for the largest trout, climb to Flag Pole Peak, and respect the beauty that Echo Lake provided. In 2003 Nikko moved to Salt Lake City. Along with joining Veterans for Peace, he also became a follower of Buddhism and embraced the calmness it brought him. When we think of Nikko, we think of his passion for the outdoors, his “messaged” T-shirts, with such sayings as “Nurture your Nature”, his bare feet, no matter how cold the weather, and his faithful dog, HeShe at his side. He is survived by his son Galen Schoch, nephew Chris Anderson, previous wife and friend Bonnie Schoch, and close friend Annie Bloom. His son, Evan, sister, Marsily, and his parents predeceased him. A celebration of his life will be held at Grace Episcopal Church, 1314 Spring St. in St. Helena at 4 p.m., Friday, August 11th, followed by a gathering of friends and family at Bonnie and Galen’s house.”
