Because of a passion for wine and wine-making, Robert Reyes envisioned having a small vineyard to produce small amounts of ultra premium wines for family and friends. However, in 2002 when he purchased the beautiful piece of land where the vineyard is located today, the vision changed from a personal hobby to a winery. The 16-acre vineyard was personally planted by Robert Reyes and the Reyes family in April of 2004, and consists of five popular grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Muscat. The first crop was harvested in 2005 and produced a very small amount. While the winery went through the rigorous permit process in Los Angeles County, the vineyard matured, and the quality of the fruit progressively improved significantly with each subsequent vintage. This resulted in better, more robust and elegant wines. The winery has produced single varietals, blends and has created four award-winning dessert wines as well as a several great Rosés.
The winery released its first “Orange/Amber Wine” in 2013, which is a skin-contact white wine created in similar fashion to traditional Georgian wines.Since then, we have released several vintages of “Amber” Chardonnay. Those wines are normally fermented and aged in clay vessels called qvevri. After fermenting in the skins, just like red wines, we aged this estate Chardonnay in French oak barrels.
In 2011, we lost part of our crop to frost, so we decided to import some high quality grapes to try a new varietal, so we brought in Zinfandel from 40-year old vines. Quinn’s Zin was officially released in October 2013. At the same time, Reyes Winery released 12 new wines, which include 6 single varietals, 4 blends, and 2 desert wines. These wines have won 32 awards and medals this year, including a Double Gold, 4 gold medals, 11 silvers, and 9 bronze medals. Plus a rating of 97 points, 92 points, 90 points, 89, points, 88 points, Best in Class, and a 2nd Place for our label.
In 2012, we added Petite Sirah to our portfolio of wines which was locally sourced. The 2012 vintages have received 15 award and medals. Our 2012 Syrah, won a Double Gold medal from the San Francisco Internal Wine Competition, plus it received 94 points.
In 2013, we have added additional new varietals such as; Malbec, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Petit Verdot which was blended into Ryan’s Blend. For the third year, the 2013 Syrah won a Double Gold Medal plus 94 points. In a addition, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon also won a Double Gold Medal and 94 points. Plus, an additional 36 awards and medals were won.
From 2015 – until now
The winery is located in Northern Los Angeles County, California. It is in the small town of Agua Dulce in the Santa Clarita Valley, only 45 minutes North of Downtown Los Angeles. It is situated within the newly established Sierra Pelona Valley Appellation. Reyes Winery has already won 350 medals and awards on its wines during the last seven years since the wines have been available commercially.
Reyes Winery emphasizes quality in every facet of production to ensure that once consumers taste its wines, they will recognize the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every bottle. Reyes Winery’s mission is to deliver the highest quality wine produced in Los Angeles County at a fair price. Reyes Winery believes the quality of its wines will ultimately speak for itself when compared with other Ultra-Premium wines on the market. Reyes wines are already available in fine restaurants as well as some higher quality retail outlets and supermarkets.
