Lang & Reed Wine Company

Can we be perfectly Franc?

Lang and Reed was founded in 1996 after realizing the potential of Cabernet Franc as a varietal that can  stand on its own


John and Tracey Skupny started Lang and Reed in 1996 with the intent to explore the unique charms of
Cabernet Franc in California. The name Lang and Reed, derived from maternal family names, is also attached
to their sons, J Reed and Jerzy Lang. For over thirty years, they have worked with wineries in California and,
since 1984, have lived and worked in the Napa Valley. Prior to starting Lang and Reed, John held executive
positions at Caymus Vineyards, Clos du Val and the Niebaum-Coppola Estate (Inglenook), whereas Tracey
recently retired from a lengthy tenure at Spottswoode Winery as Marketing Director.
