Sky Acres Winery has exclusively used GOfermentor technology since 2014. The advanced GOfermentor+SmartBarrel winemaking process enables us to safely make wines without any sulfite additions. These wines have enhanced color and a fresher, fruitier flavor.
Our wines won 8 medals in the 2021 San Francisco Chronicle competition, continuing a winning streak over 6 years. Sky Acres Merlot won a gold in the 2021 wine competition.
Of particular note is our Petite Syrah 2016, which won a bronze in 2018. The same wine won bronze again in 2020, showing the aging potential of our wines, even with no sulfites added. “Our GOfermentor+SmartBarrel made wines are pure – just grapes and yeast.” says Meera Singh, Winemaker, Sky Acres Winery.
