California Collector Wines

California is one of the most prominent winemaking regions of the New World. Their climate helped them cultivate a respectable number of versatile grapes and certain varietals that had an unreliable reputation in countries like France. They stand toe-to-toe with every other winemaking titan, and their wines are getting more and more attention from wine geeks and collectors alike. Some Californian blends are skyrocketing in price each year, showcasing the potential of the region and bringing many hopeful investors onto the scene.

Some recent vintages are proving to be an amazing investment. For example, if you can get a hold of a bottle of 2015 Chardonnay from Three Sticks Wines, we highly encourage you to do so. Should you decide to uncork it, you get to experience a heavenly blend of zesty citrus and a warm, cozy toast baseline. If that doesn’t suit your taste, how about an elegant bottle of 2015 West Ridge Pinot Noir from Hirsch Vineyards, which simply explodes in a surge of raspberry flavor and an encompassing aroma of redcurrant? Whatever your preference is, there is a blend in California that you will want to add to your cellar. To that end, we’ve made it our goal to introduce you to as many collectible wines as possible from this region. If you wish to impress other collectors with your amazing selection or simply bring joy to your friends and loved ones over a meal, look no further than these mouth-watering wines.
