While most include California in the new world wine category, California could also be regarded as the newest old world wine country. Afterall, California winemaking traditions date back to the late 1700’s, when Spanish missionaries introduced winemaking to California from Mexico. The combination of almost 250 years of wine making traditions and experience, our modern-day drive for innovation and improvement, and an ideal climate to grow grapes, makes California one of the best places on earth to make outstanding wine. And that’s where The Vineyard Cellars come in! Founded in late-2000, we are Europe’s only exclusive Californian wine merchant specialising only in small-production, high quality wine from the Golden State. We work in a “hands on” style, directly with our producers and bring the wine to you under strict temperature control so that the bottle arrives at your table in peak condition. Apart from offering our wines for sale through this web site, we can also arrange private tours Read more »

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • HI.  Thanks for the response.  I was planning on trying to make appointments at wineries so being able to drop in is not essential to us. Below are some of the wineries/tasting rooms I've come across in my searches that I'm considering.  However, I don't know what to make a priority and I'm sure I'm missing others I should consider.  Healdsburg:...

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • RBA, looks like a great trip, glad to see you're not wasting any time! By the way, are there any oysters left in VA?Trying to make some room in the wine fridge for the last of the fall shipments so I grabbed this bottle from the "have at it" shelf.

  • For a marketplace perspective, here's a recent offering from BPWine. FWIW, their prices tend to be quite competitive.

  • DM, let me start with your #2  Cult Napa Cabs.This thread got my curiosity going as to the most expensive Cali cabs - who they are and how much they cost. This is a wine-searcher article last updated this month showing the names and average bottle price over several vintages. Have to say that I have not had a taste of a single one of these wines...

  • OT, how do you place Insignia or Dominus or Mayacamas or Heitz Martha's or others from Napa's storied past? I was a bit surprised to see Montelena in the list below. Do we want to track specific winemakers and consultants?   So here're excerpts from the Wikipedia page on cult wines. Are these the definitions we want? Cult wines are those for whi... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...
