Charles B. Mitchell Vineyards

Charles B. Mitchell Vineyards is located at an elevation of 2550 feet and has many hills that have different aspects to the sun. consequently we can produce many different varietals, for example Pinot Nior on a East facing slope to get the early delicate morning sun and as the sun travels about its business of the day it warms with more intense heat on the south west facing slope which grows Petite Sirah. This situation creates fine wines as good as any produced as evidence of wine by writers reviews and gold medals galore.

We feature lots of events for tasters. Join us every Friday night "52 weeks a year" for Endless Pizza $10 and 1 ΒΌ live Maine lobster $30, the party like setting features special carafe wines for the event. We have a separate Zin Zone bar where we offer a case of 12 different Zinfandels for $150. Became a winemaker three times a year at our bottle your own event, where bottle prices are ridiculously low. Invest in your future- that is to say our finest wines at limited production at 40% discounts, where you taste first from the barrel. Wine club members may stay at the winemaker guest house for $60.

Skinner Vineyards

Spring is here, and we at Skinner Vineyards find ourselves inspired. A recent trip to the Rhone Valley in France brought us a deeper understanding of the history of the wines we make, and renewed appreciation for the quality of Rhone-inspired wines that the Foothills produces.

Jon Bonne at the San Francisco Chronicle must have been reading our minds, writing on March 31 (in the article "Grenache displays its stunning side") that "The foothills in particular shined once again."

The grounds at Skinner are blossoming with life. The breezes, flowers, and view of the spring-green hills make us want to pause and linger. We invite you to come and visit our tasting room and patios, open Friday – Sunday, 11 – 5.

We have some great upcoming events (including Mother's and Father's Day) – learn more at, and like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for special offers and news.
