After many years I finally found my niche which is premium wines from Napa Valley, Sonoma & Central Coast .
It took many years of sampling wine and understating quality to be able to bring some of the best smaller production wine to the consumers.
We are still looking for more of these hidden treasures and we will add them to our collection as we grow.
We have created a dynamic portfolio, based around family owned and operated artisan wineries .
We dedicated to introducing small family-owned wineries into the Southern California marketplace.
Each small production, hand-crafted wine represents a very special sense of place. Most importantly,
the family behind each label possesses a passion for wine that is equally shared by my family.
The finest wines for the finest people
Thank you and stay tune,
