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.
The journey has left a series of lasting lessons, provided many inspirations and also created lifelong friendships. It led to Sierra making her first wines in February, 2015. Sierra hopes that you seek out her wines and that they bring you as much joy in the drinking as they have in the making.
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), Rheingau, Germany (Robert Weil) and Pfalz, Germany (Kohler Rupreckt).
Reed Wines was established in 2015.
