FAR HILLS, N.J., Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sky Acres Winery has exclusively used GOfermentor technology since 2014. The advanced GOfermentor+SmartBarrel winemaking process enables us to safely make wines without any sulfite additions. These wines have enhanced color and a fresher, fruitier flavor.
Our wines won 4 medals in the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle competition, continuing a winning streak over 5 years. Of particular note is our Petite Syrah 2016, which won a bronze in 2018. The same wine won bronze again in 2020, showing the aging potential of our wines, even with no sulfites added. "Our GOfermentor+SmartBarrel made wines are pure – just grapes and yeast." says Meera Singh, Winemaker, Sky Acres Winery.

The GOfermentor was developed by Dr. Vijay Singh, a world-recognized biotech scientist with hundreds of published papers. Among his 30 or so patents, is his highly acclaimed Wave Bioreactor, a device developed in the late 1990s, which revolutionized the production of biopharmaceuticals by using a disposable cultivation bag supported on a rocking platform. Vaccines, antibodies, cytokines, proteins, are all commercially manufactured in the Wave Bioreactor, now owned and marketed by General Electric Healthcare. www.gofermentor.com
