Robert Sinskey and His Fabulous Wines (Tasting #27)


I have never met anyone who has not really liked Robert Sinskey wines except for the print wine reviewers. I don’t know what the current scores are but WS and the like do not give high scores to Sinskey (or did not) but the following speaks of something else. I give 85 to 88 for the Cabs and Merlots I have tasted. That is a couple of vintages back.

Join us on Wednesday, February 10th, from 4:30-7:30pm, as we welcome special guest Rob Sinskey, Principal and Winemaker at Robert Sinskey Vineyards. Rob Sinskey has been making wine for 20 years. His philosophy is that to enjoy wine to the fullest, it must be considered with food. To that end, the vineyard relies heavily on a grape that supports those beliefs. “Pinot Noir is a grape that requires food,” says Rob, who plants over half of his nearly 200 acres in Pinot Noir.

Since 2001 Sinskey Vineyards has been certified organic. Now they are working toward biodynamic certification. The Sinskey wines have a clean, bright focus that we believe is the result of the winery’s attention to detail in the vineyard and their stewardship of the land they love.

We are sure you will enjoy meeting this charming and witty winery owner and vineyard pioneer and there is no doubt you will love tasting the wines of Robert Sinskey Vineyards at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant. It’s a Party!!

Super Bowl Party on Sunday as well!!

This Sunday come on down to Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant and join us in watching the Super Bowl. The fun will be starting at 3pm as we show this sports extravaganza on our 2 large flat screen HD TV’s in the Wine Bar. Kick back with your favorite wine or even a tasty draft beer, nibble on some incredible food from the Ferry Plaza and watch the Super Bowl with us.

If the Super Bowl finds you in wine country, swing by our sister store, Oxbow Wine Merchant, where we will also be showing the game on our 52″ flat screen HD TV. We have 5 local beers on tap, plus an array of great wines by the glass at our Wine Bar. Enjoy some tasty treats from our food menu as well. We hope to see you at one of our spots.
