Reverie Vineyard and Winery is located in a small canyon in the Diamond Mountain AVA. Diamond Creek Winery and Von Strasser Winery are neighbors. Reverie is a small producer that focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon.
The estate vineyard is located on a very steep hillside with extremely unfertile soil. In 1989, it was planted with 14 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 6 acres of Merlot and 6 acres of Cabernet Franc. The vines also contain a small amount of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Tempranillo, Barbera, Grenache, and Roussanne.
Reverie’s vineyard has an excellent southern facing aspect and grapes are able to soak up the afternoon sun. Yields are very low, and annual production has been capped at 2,500 cases.
Ted Lemon consults in the vineyard and the winery at Reverie. He has an impressive background and was the first American to work as head winemaker at a Burgundian estate.
