L.A. Reid Knows Wine

L.A. Reid is also passionate about wine—he has a 2000-bottle cellar in his Long Island, N.Y., home. Reid recently spoke with Wine Spectator about blind tasting, cult wines and his dream of owning a vineyard.

Wine Spectator: How did you get into wine?
L.A. Reid: It was completely by accident. I bought a home [in Atlanta] that had an empty 200-bottle wine rack in it. I called a local wine merchant and I said, “I need 200 bottles of wine.” This was probably about 12 or 13 years ago. Chefs would come by and say, “Oh, you have this or that,” and I didn’t know what it all was. Someone said, “Well, you’ve got Caymus, but you’ve got the wrong one. You need the Special Selection.”
