Courier Post Article on San Francisco Chronicle’s ‘Best in Class’ Award
“Indeed, hybrid grapes can produce wines that evoke suggestions of dark fruits, provocative spice and simulating acidity, as shown by this Black River Red.”
That quote about Sky Acres Winery’s Black River Red wine came from Mike Dunn, a judge in the recent 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Sky Acres, which is in Far Hills, took home a Best in Class award in the Red Blend: Red Native/Hybrid category. The winning 2017 Black River Red, named after the Black River Road that owners Meera and Vijay Singh live on, is produced from estate-grown marechal foch, a hybrid French red wine grape.
