About the event
Robert Sinskey Vineyards is located against the hills on the eastern side of Silverado Trail in the Stags Leap District. Their motto is 'fine wines from organic vines.' Sinskey was founded by Dr. Robert (Bob) Sinskey, a prominent cataract surgeon in 1986. Today, his son Robert oversees the winery operations. Robert originally moved up from Los Angeles to help his father for a short while but the winery ended up becoming his life's work. His original property (Three Amigos Vineyard) was purchased in Carneros with the intent to grow and sell grapes rather than make wine. He did just that - selling exclusively to Acacia Winery at the time and later became a partner in that winery. After Acacia was sold in the 1980's, part of their payout to Dr. Sinskey was land in the Stags Leap District, the same property where the winery is now located.
The first vintage of Robert Sinskey was in 1986, created by winemaker Joe Cafaro who made each vintage until 1991. Only three wines were released from this first vintage, a Pinot Noir, Merlot and a Chardonnay. Over the years their wine portfolio has greatly expanded and unlike many Napa Valley wineries, Robert Sinskey does not focus on Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Jeff Virnig has produced all subsequent vintages – one of the longer consecutive periods of time at one winery by any winemaker currently active in the Napa Valley.
