Jennifer Reichardt, the owner and winemaker of Raft Wines, started making wine in 2016 when she realized that there is nothing better than the joy of sharing food and wine with loved ones. Her family raised ducks for the Sonoma restaurant industry. A "raft" is a dense flock of swimming birds (like ducks).

About

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.- Rumi
Raft Wines was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Reichardt. The brand was formed from a feeling of joy – joy of the land, of the food and wine we can produce, and of the joy we have when we share around the table. Her journey to get here revolved around the table and the community that she shares the table with. This community is her raft, keeping her afloat every step of the way.

Since 1901, Jennifer’s family has been in the food industry of California, most specifically raising ducks for restaurants in the Bay Area. In the most literal sense of the word, a raft is a dense flock of swimming birds, just like a duck. These wines are here to be paired with food, or with Liberty Duck, and wines that can come with you to every meal.

The winemaking bug bit in the spring of 2011, and that autumn and Jennifer completed her first harvest in Sonoma County, California. Over the next few years, she completed six additional harvests, from the Sonoma Coast, down to Chile, back to Sonoma Coast, down to Australia, and back again. Harvest number eight brought in a new meaning, as she got to craft a wine of her own, to share with my friends, family, and community. Raft in 2023 is now bottling it’s seventh vintage and is looking towards a bright 2023 harvest.
