Result of a Crush was started by Amanda Reynvaan and Angela Reynvaan Garratt in 2011, along with their brother Matt as consulting winemaker. From the beginning there were two primary objectives: (1) produce high value/lower cost Rhone style wines that can be enjoyed every day and are fun to share with friends; and (2) produce that wine at a quality level equal to wines that sell for latest twice as much.
Each of these objectives have been consistently met and allowed us to provide an annual offering of our wines that now includes: Syrah Blend, Rhone White Blends, Cabernet Blend, and a Syrah co-fermented with Viognier. Each wine is widely recognized for its extraordinary Quality to Price Ratio (QPR) because they contain only declassified juice from Reynvaan Family Vineyards or special fruit sourced from Matt’s friends in Walla Walla Valley. As with all of our Reynvaan wines, our goal is to produce wines that we love and hope you do as well. Some call these wines the gateway drug to Reynvaan Family Vineyard wines, others enjoy all of the wines for various times and events.
A significant part of our winery starting out was having the tasting room at Fourth and Poplar in Walla Walla, but as business has evolved that particular “bricks and mortar” presence has been far out-paced by website and online sales. We decided to close the tasting room as of 12/31/2017 to allow the five of us to better focus on those parts of our business. As part of this transition, we also will offer four ROAC wines each year: Red Blend and White Blend in late spring/early summer and The Claret and Christmas Cuvée in the Fall.
