Sky Acres Winery wins 8 San Francisco Chronicle Awards in 2021
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.
Evaluating nearly 6,700 wines from over 1,000 wineries for the 2021 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

The Winery That Fits in a Closet
Countertop beer-brewing kits are common. But what if you could produce Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay in a series of odorless, biodegradable plastic bags, using nothing but grapes and a machine the size of a small trash can? That’s the promise of the GOfermentor Junior, an automated winery 30 inches high and 18 inches deep and no louder than a refrigerator. Geared toward the oenophile making wine for private consumption, it goes on sale in early 2019 for $500.
