Sky Vineyards is a fourteen-acre vineyard and small family winery nestled between the crown of Mt. Veeder and the expansive sky.

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 »

  • So what’s the deal and why would you age something that is already so freaking delicious? Well, maybe you shouldn’t. Just sayin’…Riesling does age very well and for a long time, that we all know and understand. But what exactly does very well mean? If you like your Riesling full of petrol aromas with a lean, focused feel and salty minerality, th... Read More

  • Fort Berens Estate Winery Pinot Gris British Columbia Vqa 2010

    Snoothrank:

The wine has an appealing spice and peach nose with tropical honey notes. On the palate, there is that pinch... Read More

  • Had one of those once in a lifetime days betting the ponies today.  With the winnings, i'm probably going to be budgeting up to $1500.00 on some more expensive wines I haven't been able to afford in the $80-$200 range.  Any suggestions?  I favor a right-bank bordeaux style for reds but also enjoy a medium bodied cabernet style, along with rhone ...
