None other than the Governator himself has declared September California Wine Month. It’s a great incentive to rediscover the bounty that is California wine, and we’ve worked with our friends at Carlo Russo's Wine & Spirit World to unearth some real gems to help highlight the breadth and depth that California wine presents today.

The simple truth is that California has moved beyond the staples, though they still do them well. Myriad producers have branched out and begun to experiment with regional specialties. First came the Rhone Rangers with their focus on Syrah and then Grenache. Then came a resurgence of Italian varieties such as Sangiovese and Barbera, and most recently a focus on Spanish and Portuguese grapes. We've found three producers to help illustrate these new movements , as well as some of the classic California styles we all love.
