About Robert Sinskey Vineyards

After 20 years, Robert Sinskey's philosophy is that "Wine is not an athletic event" holds true to this day. For Sinskey, the goal has always been to make "pure wines of character that pair well with cuisine." And Robert Sinskey Vineyards is spreading the gospel that organically grown grapes produce fine wines of great individuality.

Rob Sinskey believes that making luxuriously elegant wines and farming with earth friendly methods are not mutually exclusive. Rather, he has found that caring for the land organically, combined with conscientious business practices (including a solar powered winery, using biodiesel from used restaurant oil in tractors and trucks, and having sheep and chickens mow the cover crops) have helped define the well-crafted wines of Robert Sinskey Vineyards.

RSV's holdings have grown from 15 to over 200 acres of CCOF certified organic and Demeter certified Biodynamic vineyards in five Carneros locations (Three Amigos, Vandal, OSR and Capa in Napa Carneros and the Scintilla Vineyard in Sonoma Carneros) with a small estate vineyard behind the winery in the Stags Leap District. Coming soon, their new Wine/Culinary adventure Wilding Farm.
