Play Winemaker ... Mix and match single varietals to make your own perfect masterpiece of wine. Our unique wine blending lab lets you experiment with your own concoctions. Our practiced Wine pros will load you up with six varietals in test tubes (and a sip of our own masterpiece blend "George") then guide you through an in-depth understanding of grape varietals and their flavor profiles so you can create your own masterpiece of wine. If you come upon a crazy amazing blend, enter it into our blending competition and you might win a stay at Skyline Vineyard Inn.
BLENDING LAB IN THE BASEMENT OF SKYLINE VINEYARD INN
65 Clark Lane, Washington Virginia
MAKE YOUR OWN MASTERPIECE OF WINE
The Skyline Vineyard Inn Blending Lab is making wine tasting fun again with mixology sessions that let you experiment with your own concoctions. Mix and match single varietals to make your own perfect masterpiece of wine. Are you a fan of fruity, soft, velvety Merlot? Mix in 60 percent Merlot, 30 percent Syrah and 10 percent Cabernet Franc and see what happens. Swap the first two varietals and with Syrah as the base you’ll experience an entirely new big, bold, spicy blend.
If you want to leave the wine making up to, well, the winemakers, the Blending Lab also operates as a regular tasting room, where you can try the world's iconic masterpiece blends and single varietals and enjoy food and wine pairings on the wrap around "Gone With The Wind" Porch.

The Vintner's Table
Join us at our Vintner's Table on the 1st Saturday of every month at Noon for a learning lunch. Every lunch has a different focus to explore themed food & wine pairings .... so come, come again and come again. Pairing food with wine does not need to be a complicated affair! Rather than a set of rules to follow, it is more a case of simply bearing in mind a couple of guidelines:
Food: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, umami.
Wine: sugar, tannin, alcohol, body.
We'll teach you how to recognize perfect pairing flavors as we taste foods & wines from Piedmont, Tuscany and Sicily, Switzerland, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Provence, Spain, South Africa, Argentina, oh - and all over America too.
Food & Wine classes happen every weekend. Please go to our class calendar to purchase & reserve seats.
Bar? ... What Bar?
Our SpeakEasy is open to the public Saturday and Sunday Noon-5 and every day for Skyline Vineyard Inn over-night guests to stretch out the day, so that time may not hinder carousing and play. Try to find the it! Eventually we will show you the secret passage so that you can feel free to stay up playing pool, watching the game and enjoying a nostalgic infatuation with the good old days of prohibition.
