Skip Stones, Not This Wine

  • Publish Date: Oct 14, 2009

When we think “skipping stones,” our minds turn to hot summer afternoons on the beach or along a lazy river. The 2005 vintage of Oliver’s Blend by Skipstone Ranch will take you to an equally idyllic place.

This wine is absolutely delicious. Its bouquet of lavender and rose petals will pull you into a black-fruit basket of tastiness (blackberry, cherry, and plum combined). It’s juicy without being overpowering. A masterful blend, through and through.

Even more, winemaker Andrew Levi utilizes a mix of cutting-edge technology and timeless winemaking techniques to ensure that Skipstone is producing wines with Zero Carbon Footprint and Zero Waste. Talk about feeling good in more ways than one for buying this wine.

PS: Skipstone also produces an extra virgin olive oil, perfect for gifting, from their olive grove of 550 trees that blanket their Anderson Valley hillside. If you’re keen on artisanal olive oil, you have yet another reason to get on their mailing list.
