The highest winery in all of this area, and the only winery on Pine Mountain, at 2000 feet above the Russian River and Alexander Valley, overlooking all of Northern Sonoma County from the coast range to Napa and Mendocino Counties. We specialize in personal vineyard and winery tours, very educational and tasty, with the goal of making our guests a better informed consumer on all things wine. BobDog Wines is home at Sky Pine Vineyards, and welcomes you to reserve your personal tour and tasting; a truly unusual and unique wine country experience. Contact us to make a morning or afternoon appointment.
