About Reynvaan Family Vineyards
Reynvaan Family Vineyards is a small family winery (Mike, Gale, Amanda, Angela, and Matt) that produces Rhône-style red and white wines from two vineyard properties in the Walla Walla Valley. The winery produces wines only from varietals that they love and farm themselves. From their first vintage in 2007, the wines have been remarkable with a consistent complexity, depth of flavor, finish, and distinctive terroir. Almost everything Reynvaan does is by hand, planting each vine in the vineyards, trellising, pruning, dropping fruit, and then picking and sorting the berries at harvest. It is their privilege to grow grapes and produce wines that the winery hopes customers around the world enjoy as much as they do.
In The Rocks is Reynvaan’s first vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley, located in Milton-Freewater, Oregon between a cherry orchard and En Cerise Vineyard. Described as the most unique terroir in the United States, this dried-up river bed contains large smooth river-sized rocks reminiscent of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The soils of this vineyard are the result of an alluvial fan formed by the Walla Walla River about 15,000 years ago. This ancient riverbed of rocky soils is a world-class site to grow grapes. We believe that with this terroir we are able to create unique, well-balanced, and very special wines.
The Foothills in the Sun vineyard is at the base of the Blue Mountains on the Washington/Oregon border. The vineyard is planted with Syrah, Viognier, a little bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, and is one of the highest elevation vineyards in Washington. It sits at 1600 ft. with a gradual western and southwestern exposure. Temperatures can be in the 90’s and drop almost forty degrees at night which helps to retain natural acidity and freshness in the wines. The soils consist of deep silty loam, with small amounts of clay, iron, and pockets of rocks.
