FINE, CALIFORNIA WINES

    Our clients charge us with locating the finest California wines for their private-label projects.  This requires that we constantly research hundreds of California's vineyards including several best-known appellations, their grapes, production & harvest data, previous vintages, and of course sampling each and every wine.  

       When we find exceptional wines they are purchased for inclusion in our Œnophile Wines Vintner's Private Collection.   The wines may be untouched such as the release of Œlation- an extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, or we will work with our winemaker to blend several of these to create a truly unique and remarkable wine, as in the case of Œ-LIXIR- a tantalizing and seductive blend of old-vine Merlot, Mourvedre, Petite Verdot, and Shiraz.   

       "These wines are created for my personal private collection, and are available in very limited releases to other oenophiles."
