Reata comes from the Spanish word for lariat and lasso. The lasso honors our winery’s ranching tradition and our winemaking philosophy. Just as lassos are threads woven together, our Reata wines are sourced from exceptional vineyards in California’s most celebrated growing regions and woven together by our award-winning winemaker. Reata focuses on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the cooler-climate, coastal regions of California, which are ideally suited to these Burgundian varietals.
Expressive of the true character of their varietal, Reata wines are approachable, balanced and highly enjoyable.
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay: Every year, our winemaker hand-selects desirable vineyards sites from cool microclimates.
Three County Pinot Noir: While the Monterey fruit provides a nice texture for the mid-palate, San Benito delivers structure as well as darker fruit and earthy notes, and Sonoma imparts elegance and a red fruit profile.
