Hank and Maggie Skewis founded Skewis Wines with the intention of producing high quality, vineyard designated Pinot Noirs from The North Coast region of California. The first grapes were purchased in 1994 from the Floodgate Vineyard in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley. In subsequent years we have contracted for fruit from additional vineyards in the Anderson and Russian River Valleys. Our annual production has increased slowly to the current level of 900 cases released in 2005. We believe that the finest Pinot Noir can only be made from low yielding vines located in premium growing regions. We work with growers who share this belief and rigorously limit yields by means of winter pruning, spring shoot thinning, and summer cluster thinning prior to "veraison." As a result, the average crops in the vineyards we contract with are between two and two and one-half tons per acre. Harvest dates are determined by a mixture of sugar and acid analysis, tasting and observation of the vines and fruit. Typical numbers Read more »

  • Skewis Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Bush 2006


    Garnet ruby and crystal clear. Great balance of tannin and tart. Oaky, with cola and raspberry. Super palate cleansing while at the same time exudes a butterscotch, anise, cigar and cherry nose. It's everything a Pinot should be. Read More
