Bing Bing Bing Cherry. Good, smooth, friendly, wine with nice acid. Tones of pomegranate in the mid palate, preceded by raspberry and bing cherries, along with its soft tannins, provide a playful character that won’t weigh you down. – Salud, Raul Morfin
When the Reininger children were young, they had difficulty pronouncing the name of the nice young man who began working with us. The children would greet him with, “Hello, Mr. Owl!” Raul Morfin has since become our Assistant Winemaker and is very special to us. To honor Raul’s dedication to REININGER, Mr. Owl’s Red was first crafted in 2002.
To further thank Raul, REININGER donates $5 of every bottle sold to his favorite Walla Walla charity, Friends of the Farm Labor Homes Community.
Price: $35.00/750 ml bottle
