The guys behind Shippey Vineyards are four wine industry veterans. Matt Shippey has farmed his vineyard on the slopes of Bradford Mountain since 1983. Matt's cousin, Tim Shippey, has been in the business for decades, marketing wine for wineries as large as Clos du Bois (where he was Brand Manager). Vineyard Manager John Clendenen is a respected name in the industry, and exemplifies the Shippey Vineyards philosophy of minimal intrusion into the growing process. Winemaker Mike Duffy is the award-winning owner of Optima Wine Cellars, and is a longtime family friend. Mike makes our wine in his small facility in downtown Healdsburg. Located at the Hudson Street Wineries. Open Thursday through Monday: 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. $10 per person waived with per person bottle purchase.
