Thanks to Southern California's dry summer days and cool nights, the grapes around Antelope Valley Winery enjoy a long growing season with ideal temperatures and conditions. This translates into a variety of wines that run the gamut from robust reds to sweet sparkling concoctions perfect for toasting raisins who escaped the press. And although wine is Antelope Valley Winery's main focus, it's not their only one. In addition, they sell grass-fed buffalo meat hailed for its low-cholesterol goodness, and run a farmers' market from May through November, where shoppers can pick up exotic meats, organic juice, and locally-made goat cheese.
Agua Dulce Winery unfurls its trellised vines and winemaking facilities across 90 acres of the Sierra Pelona Valley, effectively extending wine country a few hundred miles south. The grapes rely on the region's cool evening breezes and alluvial soils to maintain the earthy, peppery flavors and restrained acidity that characterize the region's wines. Medium- and high-toasted barrels from France, Hungary, and the United States each lend their own influence to the freshly fermented creations, aging the juice and subtly tweaking the flavorful interplay of rich fruit and restrained spice.
Robert Reyes had envisioned something small: a little parcel of land in the Sierra Pelona Valley with a handful of vines, the grapes from which he would transform into small batches of premium wine and perhaps a California Raisins cover band. But when he found 16 acres of sunny, sloping land in 2002, his vision shifted from fulfilling a personal passion to building a thriving business. Two years later, Robert and his family planted five varieties of grapes, and Reyes Winery was born. Today, the winery welcomes visitors for all types of events, ranging from basic tastings to half-day wine-fueled hiking excursions through the surrounding hills.
