The Almaden Story For more than eight generations, Almaden Vineyards has a rich history full of vision and success. Established in 1852, Almaden is California's oldest winery.

  • Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife.  We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after.  We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up.  We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner.  She said she would bring a bottle of wine....

    I just discovered this fabulous wine. Almaden Heritage Moscato has got to be the best wine I have had in months. The local wineries here in the Bourbon Capital of the world can't touch this one! Great price, too. Read More

  • In years gone by I have drunk a lot of Zin, but it is almost always consumed within 2-3 years of the harvest.  I have let some high alcohol zins (specifically Opolo Mt Zin) go for 4 years and they had turned flabby and off tasting.  Last night I came across a bottle of Seghesio Sonoma 2007, which is their cheapest and simplest zin, and had it.  ...

  • For years my wife and I enjoyed toasting our wedding annivery date with a glass or two of Almaden," Eye of the Partridge," wine. With Partridge being our name and the fact that the wine was really quite good, it made that a welcome tradition as part of our anniversary celebrations. I was unable to locate the wine in years past and have been to...

  • Almaden Vineyards Merlot Heritage Bag-In-Box

    Snoothrank:

    Better than expected for a mass produced box wine. Although not very complex, it has a pleasant quality that exhibits some body, nice swishability in the mouth, and goes down smoothly. A good choice for an everyday table merlot. Price for the drinkable quality is the driving factor. 82. Read More

  • Must admit I'm becoming a convert to this wine, I know it seems to get a lot of negative press having a reputation as a lowly ' Workhorse ' grape. but I enjoy the richness, tannins that grip you and the dense meaty flavours. I've recently had some very good ones, notably .........Paul Mas Estate Carignan Vieilles Vignes Savignac Vineyard 2010 Pa...

  • For some time now, I have noticed a pattern with men who disparage rose as being a "girly" wine. Some of the most accomplished and masculine sommeliers I know would rather drink rose than pretty much anything else. Any thoughts on the male problem with drinking rose? Read More

  • I like the Almaden Merlot of the small selection available but my last box was impossible to believe: the spout was neither visable nor reachable with a finger through tne opening. My only alternative was to open the top, reposition the bag and get it back in--a VERY difficult job, but i finally did it, But the last straw was that although the s...

  • I really enjoy Almaden Merlot in the box, however this is the second time in 2 months that I purchased a box, that the bag was inserted in the box, upside down. The numbers are Jun 23, 2012 16411 22 10RL11 Sounds like a quality control problem? Is it?

  • I have been buying Almaden merlot box wine for a long time and enjoy it. Last week for a party I opened a new box to find that the bag of wine was upside down in the box. We opened the box and turned it around so that the spout could be accessed. The problem was the spout was opening up instead of down. We had to lay the box down flat to pour...

  • Hi, I recently bought two (2) cases of 5 Liter, ALMADEN White Zinfadel. Every box had the bag upside down. In the past I would open the box reverse the bag and tape it. This time I couldn't because the spigot was facing sideways. i'm very dissapointed and was imbarrased during my parties. Sincerely, Dennis Alweiss 217 brehaut Ave., S.I.N.Y.1...
