It was there that Skinner Winery was re-established, and Mike and Carey started developing their dream of resurrecting the family history. The Skinners immediately brought winemaker Chris Pittenger, formerly with Williams Selyem and Marcassin in Sonoma, on board the same year. They worked closely with Chris in planning the new Skinner Vineyards and Winery operation, creating a winemaking program that aims to honor their family history. Together, they mapped out a course for the wine program with the goal of creating world-class wines that respect their heritage and create a legacy for future generations. Skinner Vineyards fosters the resurrection of their family lineage through their two Estate properties they believe hold the future of California wines.
White Oak Vineyard is located in Rescue, California adjacent to the original J. Skinner property. At 1,400 feet elevation, its soils are alluvial in nature, a result of sediment and soil coming down from the Sierra. Iron rich, red, volcanic loam and some clay make up the soil profile with small-to-large chunks of granite and quartz scattered throughout the strata at all depths.
Stoney Creek Vineyard is at Skinner Vineyard’s winery site in the unique Fair Play AVA, which sits at 2,700 foot elevation. The site has a unique micro climate that has temperatures are about 2-5 degree cooler than other Foothills regions, with moderating breezes that upslope from the delta as temperatures rise throughout the day. In the evenings, cool air drains down from the Sierra, creating a terroir that is unique to Skinner Vineyards.
"Skinner Vineyard" to be honest I didn't knew about the existence of Skinner vineyard till my very good friend and buddy from T-Edward (Ivan) introduced me to one of their wines, Initially I was little skeptical to add new wines to my portfolio, but Ivan completely changed my mind regarding "Skinner", It was so beautiful and the price point was right there, affordable, tasty, beautiful, and my wine community fell in love with it.
