New Vision for Historic Rancho Property

reattaWinery.jpgNAPA, CA, Oct. 19, 2011 - The Winery at Reata has opened the doors to its stunning California coastal lodge, located in the rolling hills that were part of General Vallejo's sprawling Suscol Rancho more than 150 years ago. The winery invites guests from around the world to enjoy its newly landscaped grounds, gracious hospitality and a wine tasting experience that is unique within the Napa Valley. 

"Reata has some of the most beautiful views in the Northern California Wine Country," said Alyssa O'Hare, co-founder and president for Reata. "I was raised on a working ranch in Oregon, and this estate is magical for me. From our veranda you can see the whole panorama from the Napa Valley to San Pablo Bay. It's a wonderful place to appreciate the beauty of this area."  

"We want people kick back and stay a while," says O'Hare. Guests are invited to soak up the sun on the veranda, sample wines at the gorgeous tasting bar, tour our landscaped grounds or simply relax by the massive stone fireplace. Barrel tastings are held daily and can be scheduled for private parties. Interactive guided tours are available by appointment, and the winery also offers a variety of formal and informal food pairings with Reata's portfolio of wonderful wines.

The long cool days on the ranch produce grapes that have great intensity of flavor, complexity, elegance and balance. "We're focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay," says O'Hare, "and we've given our winemakers the resources and freedom to make wines that really capture the essence of the varietal in every bottle."

The Lodge at Reata has a lovely traditional banquet room with handsome vaulted ceilings--ideal  for private dinners, large celebrations and corporate events--and can accommodate both casual gatherings and formal seated dinners.

Sheltered from the elements, the soaring ceilings and huge timbers frame stunning views of Napa Valley and San Pablo Bay. Reata's veranda is ideal for casual summer fare, barbeques and seated luncheons or buffets.
