In 1976, at the Judgement of Paris, an unsuspecting winery at the tip of Calistoga in Napa Valley upset the French wine world and put California wine on the map. Again, in 1976, another upstart winery in the Napa Valley beat the best French Bordeaux much to their chagrin. In fact, they insisted that these great Bordeaux’s would age better and more graceful. Well, that was not to be as well in 2009, they re-tasted the 1975 Vintages of these great wines and California won again. The California Wine Club Series is a celebration of wine that is all California. Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, you name it, we look for wines all over the wine growing regions of the state to select the two best values we can find each month. Red wines only are the focus of this celebration.
Now you can experience “Special Occasion” fine wines as a member of the Limited Series from your WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB™ where you receive “super premium wines at less than premium prices.” If you appreciate the delicate subtleties of a fine premium wine, the exceptional special occasion selections you’ll find in THE LIMITED SERIES are bound to please. You’ll receive two remarkable limited production treasures, 12 times a year. Because these hard-to-find “boutique” wines are in such short supply and are typically not found in stores, this may be your only opportunity to experience their remarkable character and taste. Your pleasure is fully guaranteed.
The most recent addition to our family at the WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB™, the Vintners Series gives you an opportunity to experience wines in a price range that offers a wider variety of grapes and growing regions.

Like a chef, through their training and education, each winemaker carries a philosophy about wine throughout their wares.
Each month you will receive 2 pre-screened bottles shipped to your door. One will be red and one will be white (or choose red wines or white wines only). There is no blueprint for the origin of the wines, although I do try to choose one domestic and one import. Buy with confidence and excitement as you are about to embark on a journey of wine appreciation through THE VINTNERS SERIES.
