Reyes Winery Hike - Lunch - Tasting - Tour

I enjoyed a little hiking in the Sierra Pelona Mountains, some wine tasting, and a gourmet lunch with winemaker Robert Reyes at the Reyes Winery in Agua Dulce last Saturday.

The morning started with 16 people on a vigorous walk uphill...
and it continued uphill from there.

The vineyards were just starting to sprout leaves.

Reyes Winery is located just off Sierra Highway in Agua Dulce.

We enjoyed a taste of the Reyes 2010 Chardonnay and the 2010 Estate Bottled Syrah was served with lunch.   

We ate a fantastic lunch prepared by gourmet cook Beth Heiserman.  She managed to create every single dish with wine added to it!


After lunch Donna Harris poured her guest wines from Harris Vineyard & Winery in the Leona Valley: Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petite Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.  They were all very good and recently bottled for this event.

 

I'm looking forward to attending the First Annual Sierra Pelona Valley Wine Festival on April 20th. It will be held at the Reyes Winery in Agua Dulce.  

Robert Reyes is a very knowledgeable vintner and a talented painter. It will be interesting to taste his works of wine art.
