Our Story

“Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It's culture. It's the essence of civilization and the art of living.”

Stacy, a true California girl enjoys fashion and style, overseeing a successful hair style business. John moved out from the east coast to pursue a career in music, before settling down to a career in the utility industry in Silicon Valley. Stacy and John bring joy and passion to everything they do. Their pursuit is simple; enjoy each other and all of life’s offerings. Their dream is to provide a legacy of finely crafted wines for their children to carry on.

Brilliant Mistake Wines will be that legacy...

“We are fortunate enough to call Napa our second home. We've established friendships with some of the most renowned vintners, chefs, and locals, affording us an insight into the winemaking culture. Each and every day in the Napa Valley brings an ethereal quality to one’s life. The beauty of the valley never fails to impress and inspire us, and it is our hope that we can bottle some of its beauty for you to pour and enjoy with the special people in your life.”

–John and Stacy Reinert
