First up is winemaker Richard de los Reyes from California producer Row Eleven Wine Company. Richard says: “Founded in April 2004, Row Eleven Wine Company currently produces four wine brands: Row Eleven, Stratton Lummis, Civello and The Magician. Our grapes come from the finest vineyards in Santa Maria, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Napa Valley. We crush within 30 minutes of the vineyard. We are very proud that Row Eleven wines are served by the nation’s best sommeliers and chefs. The wines are consistently poured in the finest restaurants, resorts, wine bars and wine shops across the US.”
