Skinner Vineyards Named one of 2016 Wineries To Watch in Wine&Spirits
Each year Wine&Sprits magazine features a dozen up-and-coming producers that sparked their attention with their recent releases – “wineries we’ll be watching in the years to come.” Skinner Vineyards & Winery earned a place on that list as featured in the Winter Edition of W&S.
In 2006, we resurrected our family’s wine-making legacy by re-establishing Skinner Vineyards & Winery in the Sierra Foothills. We are committed to making elegant Rhône-style wines that express the distinct qualities of our granitic soils and meticulously farmed, high elevation vineyards.
Mike’s great-great-great grandfather, James Skinner, was a Scottish miner who established and ran the original Skinner winery from 1861 through the early 1900’s. With the new Skinner Vineyards, we hope to weave our history with the bright future of the foothills, and unite our love of family, nature, food, and wine.
