“Awesome Vineyard Tour and Tasting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This vineyard is certainly not on the beaten path but your small extra drive time will be well rewarded! The views are spectacular! Our hosts gave us a personalized tour and excellent educational experience about wine growing in California. Our private tasting was so informative - we learned not just the basics (like so many places) but much more. We tasted and compared different years of the same wine and did wine/food pairings to really reveal subtle flavor profiles. What a special experience. The wines were spectacular as well.... we came home with quite a few and will definitely order more! Don't miss an opportunity to call and schedule an appointment - you'll have a great time!

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Tim showed us a wonderful time at Skypine Vineyards during our summer wine vacation in Sonoma. The wine tasting was not rushed at all and he did a great job pairing foods that went with each type (the Cabernet Sauvignon Port is unreal). The experience plus the breathtaking views 2000+ feet above Cloverdale and Sonoma made this one of a kind.

“Great website. Great vineyard. Great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We had a great education with Tim and Kandy. They took the time to truly educate us and answer any and all questions about wine. Their wine is excellent and have now turned our friends onto it! Beautiful location and look forward to our next visit! I have a new appreciation for wine tasting, reading the label and now able to open a bottle with a shoe!

“Quite simply stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The views from this vineyard are stunning, the wine to die for but the star of the show has to be the owners Tim and Kandy. They very kindly agreed to us visiting at very short notice and took 2.5hrs out of their very busy day to take us on a personal tour of the vineyard and explain in fascinating detail how their operation works. Then came the wine tasting which was divine and at the end no hard sell which made a pleasant change. Tim and Kandy were two of the most generous and welcoming people we met on our trip to California and our short visit to their vineyard will live long in our memory. If you get the opportunity book a visit here you will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We read about this place on Tripadvisor, and decided to visit based on the positive reviews. We called the day before and were given an appointment for a tasting the next day. This place is up a bit of a mountain, and the drive is an adventure, but never felt dangerous (and we were in a rented minivan). Tim met us at the top, and spent about an hour with us, showing us the grounds, and doing tasting. He even brought meatballs for us to taste with the wine (and they were good). I expected to have to pay for this kind of experience, but he never charged us anything. I'm so glad we made the trip to visit this winery!
