Rosalind Reynolds

Rosalind Reynolds farms grapes organically and makes wine without additives.

She work within a likeminded community of grape-growers and winemakers in Northern California at the PAX facility including beloved Martha Stoumen, Patrick Cappiello, and Pax and Pamela Mahle. 2018 marked the first year Rosalind set out to create something of her own, albeit with the welcome support of the talented people who surround her.

Wine, at its core, is about community. Countless hands are involved in every glass you drink – the growers who planted cuttings three generations ago; the field workers who prune the vines in winter, tend them throughout the year and pick the grapes come autumn; the winemakers and interns who footstomp those grapes, forklift bins of fermenting fruit from tank to press, and fill barrels with wine to rest before bottling; and the distributors, restaurateurs, and sommeliers who help bring that bottle to you. An incredible amount of labor and love goes into filling a glass with wine, and Rosalind is constantly reminded of and grateful for the community who makes all of it possible. She could not do this alone, nor would she want to.

Similarly, at the end of the day, wine should be enjoyed with your own community of friends and family. Rosalind aims to make fresh, bright wines that taste good, encourage thoughtful discussion, and ultimately bring people together.
