Michael's Wine Cellar is fortunate to host many Winemaker Dinners every year. On May 4, 2019, we hosted a Winemakers Dinner featuring the superb Reynold’s Family Winery. Reynold's is a family-owned-and-operated vineyard in Napa, creating a variety of wines to please everyone's palette, from Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir to Cabernet.
We had been trying to connect with Steve (Reynolds) for a wine dinner for some time and he finally said yes! The guests at this sold-out dinner immediately fell in love with Steve. His larger-than-life personality helped create a really special evening.” - Michael Klauber, Owner of Michael’s on East
Steve Reynolds began the night with a surprise for the guests by serving them an iced “shot” of his new tequila to start off the dinner. His toast was in honor of his vineyard team who tend the vines that grow to eventually become Reynolds Family wines. (Now available at Michael’s Wine Cellar) The rest of the evening included a fantastic line-up of wines perfectly paired with an elegant four-course dinner designed by our Executive Chef, Jamil Pineda. Our new Pastry Chef, Ray Lajoie, blew everyone away with this special dessert. (pictured below)
We are so grateful to have hosted Steve Reynolds for this one-of-a-kind interactive dinner. Many guests discovered Reynold’s Family Winery for the first time and will be coming back for a new favorite bottle when it’s available in our store.
Michael’s Wine Cellar’s Winemakers Dinners provide guests a unique opportunity to develop a personal connection to a winery and “put a face to the label”. We are proud to bring these experiences to our guests and help create lifelong memories.

About Reynold’s Family Winery
In 1995, Suzie and Steve Reynolds had an idea to move to Napa, start a winery, and raise their family in the country. The couple purchased an old 14-acre farm that had a lot of potential and made the first steps to making their dream come true. Fast forward more than 20 years, and the Reynolds Family Winery is now a renowned destination for visitors from around the globe. Our small-batch wines are known for their complexity and balance of flavors, and our idyllic location provides an intimate tasting experience for wine connoisseurs, novice tasters, and everyone in between.
