My Own Barrel of Wine! Well...Kind of..

I'm a big fan of Skylite Cellars, obviously. I first got to know about the winery at the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference, where I met Cheryl as well as the winemaker Robert Smasne and assistant winemaker Greg. Their 2005 Syrah was spectacular and remains one of the best wines I've had this year.

So the other day, there I am doing important things on Twitter when I get a message from @SkyliteCellars that my name is on a barrel of wine. How cool is that?!

There you have it folks, proof that I have in fact hit the big time. That's a barrel of what is sure to be awesome vino with my name on it. My fellow San Diego Wine Mafioso Keith (@BrainWines) also got his name on a barrel, he was equally stoked and we look forward to tasting these wines in the next few years. I will ask what's in the barrel and update this post once I find out.

  1. Love the post and thanks again for turning me on to their juice. Lets chant it together now... ROAD TRIP ROAD TRIP ROAD TRIP !

  2. You say the time and I will be there! I'd love to visit them again and I bet Cheryl would love to have us hang out and sample some more wine. Best we bring our credit cards though cause I bet we'd leave with lots of juice..

  3. And as an is in fact, Washington State Syrah that is in that gorgeous barrel. NICE!
