Friends and family gathered at Newhall’s first rooftop tasting room Thursday to celebrate the grand opening of Reyes Winery on Main.
The Agua Dulce winery’s new location officially opened to the public Friday on Main Street in Newhall, featuring a restaurant on the ground level, wine processing room with a lab on the second level, and tasting room on the roof.
Owner Robert Reyes described it as the “crown jewel,” adding that it’s been a long five years in the making and he’s “very excited to be here and welcome the community.”
“This is an extension of the winery, and we are so happy to be here because I think we’re bringing we’re bringing something to the street,” Reyes added.
The third-floor rooftop is primarily an open terrace, with a tasting room located in the back corner, which, in keeping with the modern-rustic theme, features a repurposed wood ceiling made from wine barrels.
“It’s a great way to get the word out,” Reyes’ stepson Steve Sandoval said of the locale’s soft opening, noting that it’s the only rooftop restaurant in the area. “It’s fantastic.”
Singer Katie Louise and her husband William Corey just moved to Santa Clarita about a year ago from upstate New York and were both impressed with the Main Street addition.
“We were watching it get built and have been really excited about it… Main Street is really cute,” Louise said of the building before returning to providing live entertainment at the opening event.
