Tracey & John Skupny started Lang & Reed Wine Company in 1996 with the goal to explore the distinct charms of Cabernet Franc and to craft wines that are both expressive and enjoyable to drink. During their wine ‘foundation’ years, the they became intrigued by the magnitude of distinction Cabernet Franc held from notable wine regions in France: Loire Valley and Bordeaux. The Skupnys set out to produce a Cabernet Franc that was ‘true to type’, redolent in aroma, and pure in flavor with, structure and balance. Their journey has been a smashing success as they are widely held as one of the original and absolute best producers of domestic Cabernet Franc. We're very proud to have their wines in the Winestyr portfolio.
