Sky Vineyards is a fourteen-acre vineyard and small family winery nestled between the crown of Mt. Veeder and the expansive sky. Planted at an elevation of 2100 feet and on the eastern-facing hillside, the Zinfandel and Syrah grapevines ripen under full sun and fog-cooled evenings into intense berries. The reddish volcanic soil and unique physical characteristics of Sky produce a unique wine that reflects where it was grown and the care and attention it receives at every step of the process. Sky Vineyards strives to incorporate sustainable practices into the cultivation of the vines and operation of the winery. Responsible practices include use of permanent cover crops, dry farming, promotion of bird and beneficial insects, and use of organic or low impact pesticides and fertilizers. The resulting intensely flavored fruit is then hand-harvested and fermented in open top one-ton bins. Punch down is performed by hand three times per day. After fermentation, it is pressed in a traditional basket press and Read more »

  • "I have not been back to China since a lengthy visit prior to the changes instituted by the once disgraced Deng Xiaoping (you can do the math).  The idea of a bustling wine industry such as currently exists in Hebei Province was nothing short of  apipe dream at the time of Mao's death in 1976."(Disclaimer here: I couldn't read the OP's article, ...

  • Garnacha from Spain has emerged as one of today's great values in red wine. Much of the fruit responsible for the proliferation of new bottlings has come from old vineyards that until recently were used to produce bulk wine, or to supply a family’s vinous needs. It is thrilling to have so many old vineyards saved and in producing quality wine th... Read More

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • I'm a lucky wine gal, indeed. I spent Valentine's Day sipping Oregon wine at the Ram's Head Bar inside Timberline Lodge, watching the clouds form and dissipate like a roller coaster around the 11,245 foot high peak of Oregon's Mt. Hood. Sipping wine while watching the clouds work their magic was actually just the beginning of a day—and evening—f... Read More
