An approachable blend that incorporated all of our “strange” legacy fruit married with varieties that are more common, but nevertheless El Dorado through and through – radiant and wild.

The 2019 Native is a flirty, mouthwatering expression of El Dorado. Fresh raspberry and orange peel dominate the aromatics, along with playful notes of sassafras. Crunchy and vivacious across the palate with crushed cranberry, sweet plum, and a whisper of passion fruit. Fun, flirty and mouthwatering, the Native can be your food’s best friend, or simply a way to jazz up a Wednesday evening.


The original Skinner Ranch was located in what is now known as the town of Rescue. In the 1860s, it was named Skinners, California and remains an unincorporated township that still appears on most maps.
