A brief history

Chuck and Tracy Reininger founded REININGER Winery in 1997. The focus of the winery is on super-premium red wines for which the Walla Walla Valley has become famous. Through limited production and meticulous winemaking, Reininger Winery is able to maintain quality and craft award-winning wines year after year. Reininger is the first winery to expressly concentrate on Walla Walla Valley fruit.

REININGER Winery is located along Highway 12, just six miles west of downtown Walla Walla, in a beautiful new building that was constructed when the family decided to expand production and launch a second label, Helix, which was launched in December of 2004. This label is a tribute to their grandparents, whose wheat farm was sold to help finance the move to the new facility.

Since the first release in 1997, Reininger's wines have possessed a unique quality derived from Chuck Reininger's belief in gentle, patient vinification and assemblage of red varieties from Washington State's finest Walla Walla Valley vineyards. Chuck's intuitive winemaking summons the valley's maternal elements and flavors within the fruit, weaving them into an elegant and finely structured expression of the Walla Walla Valley that is the hallmark of Reininger wines.
