Truth is, these are some of the greatest wines from all of my bucket lists. Some of the fun comes from the hunt that’s involved, but let’s face it, just being expensive does not a bucket list wine make. These wines represent the golden age of California wine making, a time when a handful of grape farmers began to revolutionize the wine scene in California and almost unwittingly produced wines that competed with the greatest wines of the world.
The combination of history, great wine and the challenge of finding them makes this my favorite bucket list yet!
