Beautiful day, beautiful scenery. Great wine tastings with assortment of cheeses and nuts. As usual, all winery staff are kind, attentive and efficient. Great way to spend the time enjoying fresh air and excellent wines.

We had a fabulous time at Skinner Winery. We had car troubles on the way up and had to get another car, and Adrienne and Anna were so accommodating. Great service, excellent COVID-19 protocols.

Thank you Adrian!!!! We had a great time! I wish we could have tasted at the tasting room. We always bring guests to Skinner for the wine and amazing ambiance. I think people would have purchased more wine if the ambiance and views.

I often recommend Skinner. Sad that we had to taste in the winery rather than the tasting room but understand the Covid restrictions and concern w the weather.

We had a birthday celebration there. Hospitality by the staff was superb; the view and outdoor set up was perfect; and sharing good wine over picnic lunch with friends made the day very special!!

Great vistas and really good wine. The whole tasting experience was really nice. Seated tasting with a very attentive server who was there each time we completed one varietal such as to progress to the next.

We have been to Skinner several times over the past 8 years It has always been a highlight if not the highlight of trips to Fairplay. This time, we did not care for the wine which is totally shocking. New wine maker?
