My friend and I made Reininger our first wine stop of our 2 day wine tour in Walla Walla. The wines did not disappoint, and our amazing host Dorian introduced us to a wonderful array of their wine collection. The building itself is gorgeous inviting you to relax, but the wines only enhanced the experience. I would go back anytime.... More

We've been to many wineries over the years and we must say Reininger's is a standout not just for the outstanding wine they produce but the tasting experience was great fun. Dorian Williams passion and enthusiasm for the wines he shared with us really made the visit enjoyable. We were the only ones there at the time so he took... More

Outstanding wine tasting experience with Dorian. These wines are spectacular and well suited to our preferences. The tasting room was comfortable and large, suitable for several groups at once. We arrived first thing in the morning and had the place to ourselves so there was no rush. This is one of our 2 favorites for this visit!

Our tasting host had the worst attitude of life. Wine was good but we did not buy because off the rudeness of our host. I realize it was the end of the day but come on. There is no excuse to be rude.

We really enjoyed our stop at Reininger. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. They taste a nice range of price points and varietals. Pleasant and comfortable tasting room.

The tasting room is nice and bright. Our staffer seemed new and couldn't answer most questions. About halfway through the tasting, a large unexpected party of 17 arrived. Our staffer disappeared to handle that group. The guy who remained behind the counter was much more personable and knowledgeable. We only bought one red, from the Helix label.

Passing through Walla Walla on a road trip, we stopped by Reininger on the suggestion from a few friends, and also because it was one of the only ones open after 5pm during weekdays. The guy behind the wine bar (Dorian) was friendly/outgoing, and very knowledgeable about wine. The wine was great, but he also helped create a nice, friendly... More

This place was one of the first wineries established in Walla Walla and now is one of the best. Owners Chuck and Tracey Reininger are the perfect hosts. Raul also took great care of us. Their wines are excellent with several varieties to choose from.

Reninger is a perenial favorite on our trips to Walla Walla. They produce many outstanding wines. They have two labels: Reninger, their top tier wines; and, Helix, their more budget friendly wines. We usually buy the Helix wines as they represent a tremendous value. There are several bottles of their wines in our wine cellar. The only down side to... More
