Central Coast AVA
'Best Buy' and 88 Points!
Founded in 2001 by Reed Renaudin, X Winery was built with the idea of creating niche wines of outstanding consumer value from the best wine growing regions of California. Renaudin has been in the wine industry since 1996, gaining experience at Gallo, Heitz, and Cuvaison after finishing graduate studies in Enology at UC Davis and San Luis Obispo’s Cal Poly. X Winery is actually the product of his MBA business plan, and Renaudin has successfully positioned his winery to create noteworthy wines that are distinctively ‘X’ in style. The company is focused on innovation, efficiency, service, and imagination, and has already grown to an impressive 15,000 case entity in the short time its doors have been open. Each of the wines in Renaudin’s distinctive portfolio are appellation-driven from unique terroirs found only in California, and the result are wines of dynamic varietal intensity, flavor, concentration and structure – all offered at incredible values. Robert Parker perhaps says it best: “How can these wines be this good at these prices? Everyone is looking for good values today, and here are some e(X)ceptional bargains.”
