Rhône-Style Wines

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.


Mike and Carey Skinner
