It may seem self-explanatory, but to be clear, the name Seven Generations references the number of Skinner generations to call California home begining the inception of our winery in 1861 and when we reclaimed our family's legacy in 2006.  We honor this history by making a white Rhône blend that is truly unlike any other in the region.  Inspired by the blancs of Saint-Joseph and Hermitage, we aimed to produce a dry, wild wine reminiscent of the Old World.

Carignan raises eyebrows.  It is somehow familiar and confounding all at once.  Carignan has tremendous structure and deep blackish color. But interestingly enough, it is also incredibly versatile, as it has been known to produce anything from lip-smacking quaffing wines to tooth-staining hedonistic monsters.  For Skinner, Carignan is part of our history, and our priority is to make it one thing: delicious.

Zinfandel’s importance in California’s winegrowing history needs little introduction.  It was brought West by those seeking riches in California’s Gold Rush. No question, our founder James Skinner was as hot on Zinfandel as he was on his less-familiar Rhône varieties, and so, naturally, we’re continuing this tradition. The good news is, Zinfandel thrives here in El Dorado County with bright, high-toned aromas, balanced fruit and a knack for being more than just a crowd-pleaser… ours is downright intriguing.

92 Points & Editors Choice Wine Enthusiast Magazine | "Attractive but subtle spices brighten the red cherry and black plum notes in this full-bodied and firmly structured wine. Hints of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg emerge in the aromas and stay buzzing through the concentrated palate and on to the finish." Jim Gordon, October 2019

Mourvèdre has many names around the world. In Spain it is called Monastrell, in Australia it goes by Mataro, and in France and America it goes by Mourvèdre. This varietal is known for its meaty, earthy, and rustic qualities and is commonly used as a blending component in wines. More recently, winemakers are bottling it as its own variety to showcase its unique characteristics. Only 800 acres exist in California of which Skinner has about 3 acres planted on its two estate vineyards.

91 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "This makes a bright and airy first impression, with mountain-grown freshness to its sweet strawberry flavors. It’s a blend of mostly grenache, with some mourvedre and syrah, most of it purchased fruit. Oak adds a smoky element, but it’s the green-peppercorn spice and brisk strawberry fruit that lasts."

90 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "As a young wine it’s a big bruiser, focused [...] black-skinned fruit, with notes of chocolate, anise and black pepper trailing those tannins in the end. Brisk, tough and powerful, this is a mouth-filling red to decant for slow-braised short ribs"

Six Horse, a sister brand, produced and bottled by Skinner Vineyards & Winery, pays homage to the original Skinner winery of the late 1800’s. Its purpose is to focus on legacy varietals once grown by James Skinner beginning in 1861 and throughout the Gold Rush Era. Our Legacy White blend features estate grown Trousseau Gris which was favored by James for its crisp and clean aromatics of white flowers with flavors of fresh peaches, honeysuckle, pear, and melon complimented by delicate spice and tropical fruit.

92 Points Wine&Spirits Magazine | "This grows at Skinner’s Stoney Creek estate in Fair Play, where the petite sirah ranges from ten to 20 years old. It accounts for 86 percent of the blend, augmented with small amounts of counoise, syrah, viognier, grenache and mourvedre. Those other grapes may help to leaven petite’s tannins, which have mellowed over the course of two years in French oak (55 percent new) and a year in bottle. What’s left are scents of rocks and flowers, along with the chewy grape-skin tannins of petite. The wine is as black as you might expect; it’s also crunchy, and the floral notes keep coming on the finish. This should develop well with six to eight more years in bottle"
