Reichwage Winery aims to grow, produce, and bottle our own wines from our two estate vineyards in Western Sonoma County. Our focus is on estate grown, cool climate Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.
Generally, we sell about half of our grapes to amicable winemakers in order help cover some of the farming costs. Production is microscopic, about 700 cases per year. We hope to have our own winemaking space in time for the 2018 harvest.
Proprietor/Winemaker - Max Reichwage
Reichwage Winery was founded in 2014 to fulfill a dream of producing small quantities of classically made Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.
Born and raised in Michigan, Max's parents owned and operated a small retail fermentation supply store catering to the popular home-brewing movement of the 80s. The company slowly grew with the craft brewing industry, to become a national supplier to breweries and small wineries. A childhood surrounded by fermentations and processing equipment undoubtedly left an indelible mark. Before starting the winery in 2014, Max studied chemistry at the University of Michigan, and viticulture and enology at University California Davis.
We believe that making the highest-quality wine requires an intimate relationship with the soil and vineyards. Vineyard work is accomplished with a talented three person crew, and a pair of compact Kubota tractors. A small staff, tending a small vineyard allows us to oversee every aspect of the process from pruning to bottling.
