Maria's tenure as a chef began with culinary school in Denmark and San Francisco, and working at Michelin starred restaurants in Europe.

About Robert Sinskey Vineyards

Robert Sinskey Vineyard believes that wine-growing begins with the care of the soil. Since 1991, RSV has been practicing the “whole farm” philosophy of interrelationships based on Rudolph Steiner’s 1928 lecture “Agriculture.” This approach taps into the rhythms of nature to embrace biodiversity and encourage natural processes in growing healthy grapes that help craft expressive, vibrant and living wines.

RSV is dedicated to the agrarian, culinary experience. Sheep graze the vineyards and provide wool, pelts and meat. Edible landscape, extensive culinary gardens and fruit orchards cover the winery grounds and vineyards. Beehives dot the backside of RSV’s Capa Vineyard where they pollinate the orchards and provide honey. RSV has even planted an experimental truffle orchard with English Oaks and Filberts… because elegant, balanced wines should be served with produce and meats from the gardens and/or artisan purveyors and prepared in RSV’s Vineyard Kitchen.
