California Wine Offer

1.007 (1)

We are delighted to offer a range of perfectly aged stock from some of the best producers in California. These are true ‘Cult’ wineries, with tiny productions and a huge global following, making their library stock very hard to find. Based on Bordeaux varietals, they follow in the same footsteps as refined, rich, long-lived wines. These are some of the greatest reds in the world.

Dominus
The brainchild of Chistian Moueix of Petrus, Parker dubbed Dominus “the California outpost of Pomerol and St-Emilion”. Located in Yountville on volcanic soils, Dominus is a synthesis of Bordeaux and Napa Valley winemaking. Just 5,000 cases of this flagship wine are produced every year.

Ridge Monte Bello
Ridge is famed for its role in proving California’s quality in the infamous Judgement of Paris in 1976. Produced from a single Estate 900m up in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Silicon Valley, their yields are painstakingly low, less than one tonne per acre. Of the selection today, it is the most undervalued.
