A Sense

"We're just a speck of time." — Chuck Reininger

We believe wine is about the anticipation of the future, the echoes of the past, and the enjoyment of the present. Let's explore these moments together.

Between the various synonyms the grape has shared with other varieties to the common characteristics with other fruit, Carmenère has become the mistaken doppelganger for many of the Bordeaux varieties. It’s no wonder that it hasn’t come into its own and embraced its individuality in single varietal bottling until modern day. Now it’s celebrated all over the world on November 24 on International Carmenère Day, and at REININGER we celebrate it every spring with our annual Carmenère Release Weekend (April 5-7, 2019).
