Reuling Vineyard, a long time vineyard source for Aubert Wines and Peter Michael Winery, launches eponymous label

img 1Timothy Reuling and Jackie Reuling today announced the launch of the Reuling Vineyard label, specializing in Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their 14.4-acre vineyard in Forestville, Calif. The 2011 Reuling Vineyard Pinot Noir (SRP $70) and 2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir (SRP $25) will be released direct to consumers in April, and a Chardonnay will make its debut in 2014. Mailing list sign-ups are currently active online at www.reulingvineyard.com.

Planted in 2000, the Reuling Vineyard has for over a decade been a source for Aubert Wines and Peter Michael Winery. Beginning with the 2011 vintage, Timothy and Jackie Reuling committed to keeping all of the fruit for their own label, and hired Matthew Taylor as winemaker.

“We have devoted ourselves to nurturing this land — raising our children here, sharing the bounty of our organic garden and endeavoring to create great wine. It has been our dream to launch our own label,” says co-founder Timothy Reuling.

The Reulings purchased the 16-acre property in 1998. Recognizing the potential of turning a neglected apple orchard into a high quality vineyard, they planted 12.2 acres of the property to Pinot Noir with three clones: Calera, and two different “suitcase” clones from the Vosne-Romanée region of Burgundy. There are also 2.2 acres of Chardonnay clones from the Montrachet vineyard in Burgundy. The vineyard site is like a banana belt facing west with cooling marine influences, and it receives ample sunshine for earlier ripening. Goldridge soils are predominant.

Matthew Taylor was brought on as winemaker in 2011. With over a decade of Biodynamic® viticulture and winemaking experience, Matthew shares Timothy and Jackie Reuling’s steadfast desire to produce wines that are reflective of the land on which they are grown. Taylor most recently worked with Araujo Estate Wines, where he held a unique position as both winemaker and vineyard manager, and he currently oversees the Biodynamic® Front Porch Farm, located in Healdsburg. Matthew’s love of Pinot Noir first developed in 2000 when he worked at Joseph Swan Vineyards, but it was during his time at Domaine Dujac where he expanded his knowledge of Biodynamic® farming and decided that its values would forever be a part of his life. In 2011, he was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle as a “Winemaker to Watch.” The Santa Rosa Press Democrat listed Reuling Vineyard in its “Wineries to Watch in 2013” feature, published in December 2012.
