Skinner Vineyards Named one of Wine&Spirits Top 100 Wineries of 2017
“To make the cut, a winery had to hit it out of the park with at least three high-scoring wines. (…) The Skinners’ investment in El Dorado County has helped generate a growing buzz around the Sierra Foothills, and their mourvedre bottlings are getting seriously awesome.”
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
