“Everyone in the world of wine has a story to tell. The motivation is often the same, but the experience is always very personal. The wines I make tell my story and are a reflection of all the lessons I have learnt along the way.”
Reed Wines are single vineyard expressions made by Sierra Reed in Victoria.
Always an inquisitive and enthusiastic drinker, Sierra’s journey in wine began in New Zealand whilst filming with the Family of Twelve. Interviewing those leading families of New Zealand wine inspired her to change her life and begin the journey from drinker to maker.
A complete immersion in winemaking followed with a rapid succession of vintages as a global nomad in Paso Robles (Hearst Ranch Winery), the Yarra Valley (Domain Chandon), the Napa Valley (Piña), the Barossa Valley (Head Wines), Mornington Peninsula (Kooyong), Central Otago (Rippon), Beaujolais, France (Domain du Vissoux), the Grampians (Mount Langi Ghiran), the Napa Valley (Hunnicutt Winery), Barolo, Italy (E. Pira & Figli – Chiara Boschis) Geelong (Lethbridge Wines), and Rheingau, Germany (Robert Weil).
The journey has left a series of lasting lessons, provided many inspirations and also created lifelong friendships. It has also led to Sierra making her first wines in February, 2015. Sierra hope’s you seek out her wines and that they bring you as much joy in the drinking as they have in the making.
Since being established 4 years ago Reed Wines is now being exported into Los Angeles. The Fat Duck by Heston Blumenthal in London have listed the wines. She has just made a wine in Beaujolais, France under her own label which should land in Australia in the near future. All very exciting news going into 2018!
