Our Review

John Reynell laid the foundations for Château Reynella in 1838; over the next 100 years the stone buildings, winery and underground cellars, with attractive gardens, were constructed. Thomas Hardy’s first job in SA was with Reynella; he noted in his diary that he would be able to better himself soon. He did just that, becoming by far the largest producer in SA by the end of the 19th century; 150 or so years after Château Reynella’s foundations were laid, CWA (now Accolade Wines) completed the circle by making it its corporate headquarters, while preserving the integrity of the Reynella brand in no uncertain fashion. Exports to all major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY
