Surrounded by friends and family who were already active in the wine industry, the two were quickly captivated with every aspect of the business. Skylite Cellars - WineryIn 2000, Tom and Cheryl joined with friends and invested in the Ash Hollow Vineyard located 17 miles west of Walla Walla. From this point, the Hodgins were truly aware of their passion of transforming vine to wine. The distinction of the fruit in the Walla Walla AVA was an automatic promotional point for tourism, right down Tom’s radio alley.

  • I had a cabernet sauvignon tasting yesterday.  2004 Dunn Howell Mountain, 2010 Skylite Cellars (Washington) and two BC cabs from the same winery (Fairview Cellars) that were 2009.  They were both reserve type wines, made from the best cab from the vineyard.  We had them blind, but it was fairly easy to tell the two "brothers" from the others.  T...
