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 »

Sky Vineyards on Snooth

  • Traveling in the wine business can be hard work. No, really. You spend more time in a car and in cellars than you do outdoors, and in some places being outdoors is no treat. Italy, fortunately, is not one of those places. It seems this country is full of magical moments when sun, shadow, land and sky converge to produce breathtaking results.I've... Read More

  • ‘Hey, I’m hearing great things about the Finger Lakes,’ spoken by the collective ‘they.’ Sure, I’d tasted a bottle of Konstantin Frank or two, but embarrassingly had never visited. Summer heat finally drove me to the car, down past the paper trail of Scranton, PA’s ‘The Office,’ north bound to Ithaca, the tail of Cayuga Lake, where all the smart... Read More

  • I drove up from Houston to College Station, Texas, as a hazy, yellow sunset burned ahead in the sky, masked only by a few wisps of periwinkle clouds. The roadside fields were lush with greens of every shade, made so by the recent and frequent episodes of early summer rain. The sights of Texas highways and byways still leave me with delight even ... Read More

  • I know there are a lot of educated wine drinkers on this website but I also think that there are many novices like myself on here trying to learn. There is soooo much good information on Snooth but much of it is too advanced for me, and others I'm sure. Basically, I am looking for an advanced wine drinker to give us some of the key essential fac... Read More

  • What happened with the harvest in CA this fall? I kept noticing that it wasn't getting cold here in SoCal. In fact it was exactly 80 degrees on Turkey Day. I'm guessing this reflects at least somewhat the climate in Napa and so forth. I don't know anything about the ideal weather for different grapes, but I know that this is pretty atypical ...
