Gerhard Reisacher, Winemaker
Gerhard Reisacher comes from an eighth generation winemaking family in Austria and has been in the Napa Valley since 1986. After gaining invaluable experience working at Monticello Cellars, Far Niente, Pine Ridge and Clos du Val, Gerhard founded Delectus Winery in 1995. Over the next two decades, his wines garnered numerous top accolades from renowned wine critics and found their way into many cellars of enthusiastic wine collectors. While the Delectus brand sold in 2016, the magnificent mountain vineyard remains with Gerhard and is now the foundation of Reisacher Estate and of Sky Devil Wines. He continues to craft wines in his hallmark style, producing balanced – yet powerful – reds that can be enjoyed in their youth or cellared for decades.
