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´ve read a lot lately on biodynamic wines and how the position of the moon and other things can affect the vines growth or even the wine tasting, mostly on phylosophical grounds believing that "Biodynamics takes organic farming practices and wraps them as broader conception of the farm / the vineyard as a coherent organism, where inputs and out...

  • Sky Vineyards Zinfandel Mt. Veeder 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Floral, concentrated, dried raisin nose. Palate is very dry with rough tannins, powerful berry flavors and a medium acidity. It's quite tart in the mouth and on the finish. Read More

  • Sky Vineyards Zinfandel Mt. Veeder 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very ethanolic on the nose. Hot and fiery with strong plum notes. Despite being mountain fruit its clearly a hot year. In the mouth however, its surprisingly restrained. Not old world restrained, but restrained as in balance. Very nice cherry and tobacco notes and some nice spice and pepper on a surprisingly earthy mineral finish. Pretty tasty Read More

  • Sky Vineyards Zinfandel Mt. Veeder 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet and herbal on the nose with a pronounced mintiness and autumnal notes of cocoa and balsamic forest floor. There is a touch of peppery watercress and suggestions of candied red fruits. A touch of volatility mars the nose. Elegant and pure in the mouth with sappy berry fruit and classic notes of bramble that are more vegetal that usual. Sof... Read More
