Robert Sinskey Vineyards

Although Robert Sinskey produces well-regarded Cabernet blends and a variety of aromatic white wines from all-organic, certified biodynamic vineyards, Sinskey is best known for its intense, brambly Pinot Noirs, grown in the cooler Carneros District, where the grape thrives.

The influence of Rob's wife, Maria Helm Sinskey—a chef and cookbook author and the winery's culinary director—is evident during the tastings, which come with a few bites of food paired with each wine (her books and other culinary items are also available in the gift shop, next to the open kitchen). But for the best sense of how Sinskey wines pair with food, reserve a spot on the ($75) culinary tour, which takes you through the winery's gardens and ends with a seated pairing of foods and wine.
