X Winery’s Reed Renaudin creates innovative blends you won’t find in any rulebook - because people don’t drink rules. They drink wines. Reed explores possibilities more traditional winemakers never consider because he follows only one rule: Make wines people love to drink. Curious? So is Parker...
"The most obvious question with respect to X Winery and proprietor Reed Renaudin is how can these wines be this good at these prices? Everyone is looking for good values today, and here are some exceptional bargains" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Something New Every Vintage
Each year will bring a new blend with its own distinct aromas and flavors. While the individual characteristics will change, the blends will always have the same easy to drink, approachable style. You may not always know what Reed will create next, but you can be assured that you’ll love it just as much as the previous year’s blend. Although our single varietal wines are delicious, when blended they surpass themselves to a whole new level of excellence.
Unique by Design
A unique growers program, developed by our winemaker and founder Reed Renaudin, gives him access to incredible fruit sources. With an abundance of amazing fruit from some of California’s top growers, Reed is able to hand select and find the most harmonious combinations for our blends.
Not bound by Rules
Unlike European wineries bound by strict laws on what can be blended with what or conventional wineries too timid to break the rules of convention, X lets the wine speak for itself. Reed believes the best blends are achieved when the wines themselves dictate the formula. How would a Mourvèdre, Grenache, Zinfandel Syrah blend taste? Find out. Shop our blends >>
