California is home to an unimaginably large range of delicious wines made from many different grapes all grown in a variety of climates and terroirs. We’re fascinated by the region, and that is why we have been exploring it in depth of late.

While this sun-drenched state can produce big, ripe wines, the new generation of wine makers are creating wines that showcase the terroir of their microclimates in a manner more commonly associated with Burgundy. We are pleased to present below a selection of California’s finest. These wines explore the myriad terrain and give insight into the complexity, character and sheer quality that California has to offer.
