Proprietors, Joe and Elena Reynoso, are committed to producing small lots of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The remote 500 acre ranch was originally purchased in 1994, and since then their grapes have been sold to some of Sonoma’s top wine producers. Currently farming 150 of the 500 acres, they only keep a tiny percentage of the finest grapes from the estate for Crescere. Ultimately, their goal is to craft fruit-driven wines that display distinctive varietal character and intensity without sacrificing elegance and their signature terroir. While the labor extends beyond the bell-to-bell of Joe’s previous life as a derivatives trader, the fruits are more fulfilling.
The wines are produced by head-winemaker Philippe Melka (Bryant Family, Dalla Valle, Vineyard 29, Dana Estate, Lail Vineyards, Brand, Hundred Acre) and associate winemaker Maayan Koschitzky (Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle).
