In 1976, at the Judgment 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 retasted 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.
Come join me and an all out wine hunt through the great regions of California to source not only great values but some really fun and interesting wines that you may not find in your local store.
