Our small-production wines are honest and true to the vineyards and soils from which they grow, and the cool climates in which they ripen just to the edge of tension. They speak the language of ancient terroir and of purposeful farming, of thoughtful winemaking, and the hundreds of farming and winemaking decisions we consider each and every vintage.
With Reeve, we aspire to dig deeper into the potential of California’s noble hillside Pinot Noir and Chardonnay plantings in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino County and Sonoma Coast’s diverse terroirs—and to experiment with winemaking techniques and lesser-known varietals, with a particular penchant for Italian grapes like Sangiovese, and soon Falanghina, the newly-grafted addition to Reeve’s growing acreage of estate vineyards.
We do not subscribe to a formulaic dogma but instead practice the light-handed art of winemaking. Our intention is to highlight the truest expression of a vineyard, and to produce balanced wines that achieve a delicate equilibrium between elegance and gravity, intensity and finesse. It is our belief that wines enter another dimension when there is harmony between otherwise opposing forces. We strive to make wines with depth and complexity that draw you into the glass, and continue to pull you in for more.
Most of our wines are available only through our Wine Club, Mailing List, or Tasting Room. What you see online is our current release wines for club members and allocation.Feel free to reach out to find out more.

As usual, this wine is versatile and oh-so-easy to drink, even with a slight chill in the summer. As the French would say, it is a true vin de soif. This is the second vintage of our carbonic Pinot Noir, and is also from the same vineyard as our rosé—Bybee Vineyard. This wine carries fresh crushed berries, fine-beaded mineralogy, and notes of citrus peel. It's meant to be enjoyed sooner rather than later, because let's be honest—life is short. // $38 bottle
Tanbark Mill Vineyard is situated in the “deep-end” of Anderson Valley, sloping from HWY 128 down to the edge of the Navarro River. Fermented in small two-ton fermenters over the course of 24 days, our 2017 has a pleasantly aroma of dark macerated fruits and musky forest floor and a velvet-like swirl of wild blackberry on the palate, backed up by mouthwatering acidity that asks for another sip!
Our 2018 Bybee Vineyard Rosé combines beautiful Pinot fruit characteristics of red berries and vibrant spring flowers and an extremely high, mouthwatering "verve factor". Bybee Vineyard is in the Sonoma Coast AVA and farmed in an extremely hands-on, "beyond-organic" fashion. Straight to press and aged in stainless steel, this Rosé is highly quaffable with food or on its own. We sold out of our 2017 vintage quickly, don't get left behind. // $30 bottle
The Ascona Vineyard is perched high in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 2300 foot elevation and only about 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. This site produces aromatic wines with a fine-toothed structure. We always find this wine to have a great mélange of red and purple fruits, kind of like a classy fruit punch, combined with sandlewood and musky forest floor. // $65 bottle
A worthy successor to our wildly popular 2017 Prism, this Riesling is sourced mainly from the 60+ year old Wirz Vineyard in the Cienga Hills with a dash of Vonarburg Riesling in Mendocino to give it continuity. The fruit was hand-sorted before a gentle whole cluster pressing. Pungent rainforest flowers and stone on the nose. A mix of green apple and tropical fruit favors with a real driving, tension-loaded lemony finish. // $30 bottle
Named after the Tuscan wedding location of Kelly & Noah, and now the name of their faithful pup, this new Sangiovese is made using mostly carbonic fermentation to accentuate the bright aromatics & red candied cherry. Sourced from the lower block of Sangiovese at Windsor Oaks Vineyard, the wine includes a small percentage of Dolcetto from the Windsor Oaks Vineyard– joyful, food friendly, juicy and bright wine that begs to be drunk with merriment.
