Andrew Reginald Young left behind a career as a New Orleans rock drummer in 2012 to make low-intervention wines from cooler climate vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. He works with a lot of carbonic maceration to keep the wines light, all fermented with native yeasts and minimal intervention in the winery. The name of the winery is an ammalgamation on his middle name, reginald, and his neighborhood growing up in New Orleans, St Tammany Parish.
“Living somewhere between fruit roll-ups and classic Beaujolais, our Carbonic Pinot Noir is light in tannin and heavy on vibes. Serve with salads, pool parties, roasted lamb and pilgrimages to Joshua Tree.”
