Comments About Reverie

“We visited your winery last month and had the most spectacular time enjoying the setting and of course, the wine. We were there the same day as another couple who were recently married after discovering that Reverie was both of their favorite wineries. I recommended your place to a friend, who visited in late July and also loved the experience. We all brought back wine and got together for a wine evening last week (my anniversary), where we polished off all of it. So now I’m all out. I wanted to see if you could ship more.”

“Andy, we visited the winery on Monday in a group of eight. We just wanted to thank you for an enjoyable and memorable tour. After seeing five wineries, Reverie clearly was the best…and not just because you make incredible wine. Your style was fun, yet informative, and you pointed out numerous things in the wine making process that we never would have known otherwise. Thanks again.”

“Norm, thank you, we enjoyed visiting Reverie last week - our first stop and by far our best winery visit of the week. It was great meeting you and Daniel, your Vineyard Manager. Thank you for taking the time to show us the refractometer and allowing us to taste the grape juice. We really enjoyed the tour/tasting with Sara. She is very personable, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about wines. We’re looking forward to our first DreamTeam shipment.”

“I hosted a wine party to open up my cellar and drink the best of my wines with the best of my friends. I must tell you that the highlights of the evening were ANY and ALL of the REVERIE WINE we dove into…1995, 1996, 1999, and 2001 Special Reserve. Your wines competed with blockbuster 1997 Brunello Riservas, amazing Super Tuscans, and other California greats—but indeed REVERIE STOLE THE PARTY! Thank you for the great wine.”

M. Brown

“Norm and company, Thank you so much for our fabulous tour and tasting last week with Knowling’s group. What a privilege to be able to spend time with Norm, have some laughs, learn something, and taste great wine in such a beautiful place. Your "redwood chapel" is noteworthy and lingers on my mind like a great cab on the palate. Your hospitality was superb, and we hope we have the opportunity to come back one day. P.S. I think Norm’s jokes are funny and don't care what the rest of you think!”

“I drive for NVTT and was up there last week with a couple who VERY much enjoyed their visit. Then…surprise…later that night I found a bottle of Reverie’s Cab in my small collection (probably a gift) which we enjoyed last night! All I can say is WOW, and I will be bringing more rides up your way to discover your wonderful vineyard and wine. It is definitely some A.S.Kiken stuff. Thanks again.”

“My brother Lonnie recently brought my mother and me up to visit the winery, and Lori led our private tour. I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our time there and really appreciated her kindness and special attention during our visit. We have enjoyed the wine immensely - Thanks again!”

Dawn

“My wife and I were in Napa for our 1 year anniversary and our limo driver insisted we go to Reverie. It was our most memorable experience of the whole trip! Our tour guide was awesome and showed us all about Reverie's Bordeaux style wines. We loved it. Thanks for your hospitality.”

Kyle and Valerie

“Lori and Norm - Thanks for a wonderful introduction to Reverie. The wines exceeded our expectations and the overall tour and experience at the winery was amazing. Certainly memorable! We look forward to receiving more wine and wanted to pass along our A.S. Kiken photo of the girls in the group. Thanks again!”

H. Davis and crew

“I just wanted to thank you, because out of all the wineries we went to, yours stood way out above all others. I can only hope to make another visit down there and hopefully will be swinging by. Norm, you killed us with your jokes. Keep smiling and take care of those grapes.”

Tracy Winter

“Where else can you taste wines in a grove of majestic redwoods? If you are looking for 'off the beaten path' and a personal experience - go to Reverie on Diamond Mountain.”

Bernie Valencia

“My friend Paul Maack and I have been searching for good, complex, earthy, deep and yet well-priced reds from the Diamond, Howell and Spring Mountain areas. It looks like Reverie is the place for us!.”

Russell Dietz

“I thank you once again for personally hosting a tour of your spectacular winery and vineyard which is truly a beautiful place that reflects a great deal of thought and attention you have given to it.”

John A Harkavy

“We got lost and were wandering up Diamond Mountain Road. Somehow we made our way into Reverieís property, and you were nice enough to give us a personal tour. You are very funny, and you made us feel very welcome. We couldnít believe our luck that day. I just want you to know that you are the only wine club we joined. Thanks again.”

Michelle and Bob

“Thank you for all the time you spent with us. We really appreciate the personal attention you gave and for explaining things to us. We asked so many questions that day, and we learned a lot. I especially loved looking into the tank during the pump-over. Not all tours are the same, and yours ranks way up there at the top.”

Jay Wilson

“I just wanted to say thank you for the great service. You have done it again. The Cabernet Franc is one of the best bottles of wine that I have had in a very long time. Congratulations!”

Howard Green

“We visited your winery last week, joined your Dream Team wine club, and took four bottles of your Special Reserve with us. I just wanted you to know that we cannot wait for our first shipment. Those four bottles were gone before we left Napa (we met up with friends who had never tried Reverie and now love it too.) Thanks for making such amazing wine. If we donít pace ourselves, we will have to join the other club too.”

Stephanie

“Howdy from Texas! Charles and I recently had the pleasure of visiting Reverie. It is the most amazing place. Anyway, we had a wonderful time and your wines are nothing short of spectacular.”

Ashley Brooke

“Spencer and I were at your vineyard last week. We had the best time and left our concierge at Auberge a note about how much fun we had with all of you. What a great vineyard! You are the only winery that I mentioned in my note to the concierge.”

C. Lonshore

“Thank you for everything you did to make our Reverie Home Wine Dinner a great success. Our guests are still raving about you and all the delicious wines. You are really good at what you do. Reverie is our favorite winery and now many more people are fans of your wines too. But for now, they have to stop drinking ours and wait until their wine club shipments arrive. Thanks again for making this a truly remarkable evening for all of us crazy wine-lovers.”

Big Reverie fans

“I love the fact I didnít stand at a counter. At first, when we called for our reservation, we thought it was different that you didnít have a regular tasting room, but now we get it. Your tour is wonderful and itís absolutely spectacular tasting wines along the way, especially inside the redwood tree circle. Thanks for the time you gave us.”

John and Alicia

“Thanks so much for the hospitality. Your home and grounds are awesome.”

Mark Leftever

“On behalf of the Rattlesnake Detroit and Palm Springs Staff we would like to thank you for the terrific tour and tasting. The entire staff thoroughly enjoyed the extensive tour of Reverie. They loved tasting all of your wines. They were all very impressed with the property. Reverie is the newly discovered treasure of our trip.”

Jimmy and Jo Marie Schmidt

“I really enjoyed helping on the sorting/de - stemming line. I have a whole new outlook about winemaking. Sitting in your grove of trees was the highlight of the trip. Thanks for everything.”

Brian

“You treated me like a long-time friend and created a great wine-making memory for me. You took a lot of time to show me how to add the yeast, and then you gave us some freshly barreled grape juice. Literally, this was my favorite wine tour ever and some of the best wines I have tasted.”

Mike O’Toole

“We would like to thank you so much for educating us about your family’s vineyard last Monday - not only with so much enthusiasm, but with a great deal of humor. Each time the A.S.Kiken tee shirt is worn, it will be a reminder of our day there.”
