Reeves Ranch Vineyard

Reeves Ranch Vineyard RIn 1994 Dan and Meghan Reeves bought a forty acre property set high in the Santa Ynez Valley foothills overlooking the town of Los Olivos. It was planted with vineyards from 1989 which we soon grafted over to syrah with clones from Australia and France. Starting in 1998 we sold the grapes to winemakers such as Dan Gehrs, Kris Curran and Joey Tensley. Each year we would also make some wine for family and friends who would help with crushing and bottling. Beginning with the 2008 vintage we got our license and made the wine at Terravant Wine Co. The three terraced vineyards range from 1000' to 1200' in elevation, providing unique growing conditions that give the grapes a distinctive flavor not found in other areas of the Santa Ynez Valley. Our vines typically yield under two tons per acre, from which we produce 400 cases of wine each year. This small production enables us to pay close attention to every aspect of the winemaking process, from the cultivation of the fields to the finished product. Our philosophy is to put the vineyard into the bottle with the least amount of interference. Estate clones include shiraz clone 3, estrella and clone 99. Vineyard overseer, Felipe Hernandez, has been growing grapes in Santa Ynez for thirty years, having started at Firestone in the 1970's when there were just a few wineries in Santa Barbara County. His experience is vital to the grape growing process. Working with him is vineyard manager Rogelio Ambrosio who tends to the vines on a daily basis. The Ram is a family logo which relates to our father’s ownership of the Los Angeles Rams from 1941 -1971. Daniel Reeves was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967. We are still fans even though it is not always easy. GO RAMS!
