Who we are.
“America is built on a tilt and everything loose slides to California.” —Mark Twain
Noah and Kelly are two Missouri natives who ventured to the West Coast, like many before them, chasing dreams. Fortunately, some of those wine-fueled dreams in their story actually came true. Over the past 7 years they have built a runaway success story with their business partners in Banshee Wines, winning acclaim and lots of new friends along the way.
Now with Reeve Wines they are aiming to create a small creative outlet for some new varieties, with new ideas and grapes from new places. Nothing quite personifies this like our passion for creating a truly great California Sangiovese to rival the best in Italy.
In this quest they have taken on Ross Cobb (Cobb Wines, Hirsch, Flowers, Williams Selyem) and Katy Wilson (LaRue, Kamen, Flowers) as partners in crime. The combination of experience, passion, and ideas among this group are palpable.
Noah is currently still the Head Winemaker and Co-Founder of Banshee Wines by day. But by night he is tinkering with new ideas for Reeve Wines and also, it must be said, dancing a lot with his shirt off, skinny-dipping in the chilly Pacific, and buying tickets to concerts that he probably won’t be able to attend.
Kelly is a jack of all trades, master of none. She has worked in publishing, marketing, letterpress, project management, wrangling children Remy and Reeve, and most recently, helped launch Banshee's wine club and tasting room—while still wrangling Remy and Reeve. She is a stickler for detail, quality, and efficiency. And nothing makes her happier than a glass of rosé after a long day.
Their main commonality lies in the fact that they dream big with high expectations. It is without a doubt that every bottle of Reeve Wines is a piece of that dream worthy of sharing during life's best moments.
