History of Reustle
“A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.”
- Louis Pasteur
Prior to the arrival of the Reustles, locals said the property was once a moonshining operation. While no evidence of moonshine has ever been found, we have uncovered several bottles and moonshine jugs filled with water. We do know however, that a historic school resided on the western edges of the property, dating back to the late 1800s. While the building may no longer exist, it adds richness to the prehistory of the vineyard and winery.
In 2008, the Reustles began construction of a new winery and wine cave. Featuring angelic carvings on the walls, Biblical scriptures on the floors, and renditions of Renaissance paintings on the ceiling, the Reustle wine cave will make you feel like you've gone to Europe without leaving home.
