The Most in California

Exploring 4 of the State's fantastic wine properties

If there was a true complement to Opus One’s status as the catapult that launched the ultra-premium category in California (which of course gave rise to the California cult Cabernet craze that we are just seeing the tail end of), it must be Dominus. Founded in 1983, and again a union between two important winemaking families, in this case Christian Moueix of Pomerol and most famously Petrus, and daughters of John Daniel, one of the true pioneers of ultra-premium quality wine in Napa Valley and producer of mythical Inglenook wines.

    Nice article's a shame Dominus doesn't offer tours or tastings.

    I am so much into the wine craze, that I really want to follow my true love of wine, and get into a winery......

    Oh, I could add so much more... how can we host photos here? Maybe there is a way, but I have not been able to do it except for profile. A photo page dedicated to wineries would be nice. I have two amazing ones of chateau montelena, one featured on an SF news channel. Maybe a contributive blog for all on wineries?
