The GOFermentor Jr. featured in “The Future of Everything”, Wall Street Journal, October 12, 2018.
The 2018 New York International Wine Competition names Sky Acres Winery as ‘New Jersey Winery of the Year 2018’. With New Jersey boasting over 50 wineries, we are honored to have received this distinction. This international competition received over 1,400 submissions from 24 countries.
Sky Acres Winery is located in horse country in central New Jersey about 1 hour west of NYC. This area consists of large farm tracts, most of which are protected from future development. The winery and vineyard are located in 50 acres of pristine woodlands and pasture. The name of the winery comes from our long time interest in aviation and the logo represents our red Waco YMF5 biplane.
The winery and vineyard is primarily used for research into new and more sustainable ways to make wine. Better quality wine with minimal water usage and minimal environmental impact is our goal. It is a test site to evaluate our patented GOfermentor™ winemaking machine, our GObarrel™ aging system, and many other innovations. These products are all being currently commercialized, so that wineries all over the world can utilize these innovations to become more sustainable.
Our latest offering is a wonderful red that has been crafted to be the perfect compliment to Chinese food. If you have been unsure about what wine will compliment Chinese cuisine, look no further!
