Skewis Wines, one of our newest Wine Road members, just opened their doors to what they term “Healdsburg’s Tiniest Tasting Room”- the room may be small, but it is brimming over with their large Pinot Noir expertise, delicious small production (well under 1000 cases) wines and warm, inviting hospitality- and a gallery of art showcasing local talent plus whimsical wine-inspired glittery tiaras (tiarae?) by local artiste, Kathy Timberlake. The room is welcoming, great colors, attractive bar, nice attention to detail….I LOVE that they have pencils for guests to use- I love the tactile feel of taking tasting notes with a pencil. Maggie and Hank Skewis are there to tell you about their wines- fabulous connection (and Maggie is also a great authority on cheese and wine pairings- her knowledge of cheese is not only informative, but impressive….)
“God made pinot noir and lamb on the same day.” (True dat.)
“This is as hands-on, honest and purpose driven as American winemaking gets.”
- Pacific Pinot Noir by John Winthrop Haeger.
You can see that at Skewis Wines it is pinot driven, food paired, warm hospitality all the way. The outside beckons you inward:
Here’s looking at you, kids.
