Value-minded selections for California wine lovers

What We Like

California wines can get pricey because real estate is so expensive here, but Vinesse finds great bargains to represent California

Improvements

Considering there'???s a glut of high-end California wine on the market, we think this wine club could deliver better quality wine for these value prices

We’ve now tasted many bottles of wine from the California Treasures Wine Club and we’re generally very impressed. Whether or not you like the taste of a wine is very subjective and if you have a very picky or discerning palate there are few wine clubs you’ll be satisfied with. If you like good quality wine, which is not subjective, and a great price, this wine club is an excellent opportunity for you!

Unlike some wine clubs out there, you get a lot of perks for joining California Treasures Wine Club. In your first shipment you’ll get a great little Wine Exploration guide which includes how to identify flavors in your wine, wine and food pairing suggestions by varietal, and even how to host a wine tasting party in your own home.

With each shipment you’ll also get tasting notes and pairing suggestions for those wines AND a comment card which you can either mail back or go online to submit your ratings of the wines you’ve received. Vinesse (the company that runs California Treasures Wine Club uses this information to make even better buying decisions in the future.

Another great perk from Vinesse is incredible opportunities to buy more wine. In addition to being able to reorder wines from your wine club shipment (when they’re available), you’ll also be offered exclusive deep discounts on other wines. You can sample your way through International wines, the Pacific Northwest, Merlots from around the world, and many more choices. For an even deeper discount, you can enroll in their Grab Bag program where you’ll get a mystery case of wine. Sounds scary? It shouldn’t! The same great wines California Treasures Wine Club sends to its customers end up in these mystery cases when there’s extra inventory on hand.

This Club's featured wines all come from California. About half come from wineries in California‚Äôs esteemed Napa and Sonoma counties. Others come from the award-winning boutique wineries of the Central Coast region — like those found in the Santa Ynez Valley or the Santa Maria Valley of Santa Barbara County.

We also seek out great wines from not so well known areas of California — like the Sacramento River Delta, the Arroyo Seco District of Northern Monterey County - even a small vineyard we found just west of Yosemite National Park.

Wine “gems” from California’s most gifted winemakers. Our tasting panel evaluates wine from all corners of "the Golden State" and we feature the ones that garner the highest marks.

How California Treasures got started... by Martin Stewart Jr.

“It seems like just yesterday, but I was bitten by the wine bug a few decades ago. I started out as what winemaker's affectionately call a "cellar rat." I was an intern learning the wine business from the ground up. This allowed me to see first hand the passion of innovative winemakers at large and small wineries throughout California.

California Wine The more I knew about wine, the more pleasure I had tasting the wonderful variety of wines in my home state of California. And the more I wanted to share them with others. Today it's the fastest growing wine club in the world. Since our inception, we have operated as the champion of small, independent wineries that dot the hillsides and valleys of California. We call them the "hidden world" of wine.

You see, the big distributors that sell wine to most wine shops and restaurants represent massive winery operations that make “predictable” and — truth be told — rather boring industrial wines. Here is where we come in. We take our members inside the hidden world of California wine, and introduce you to some of the best wines you've never heard of. There are literally thousands of these wineries, most small family-owned enterprises making relatively tiny batches of great wine. But there just isn’t much to go around, and we try to always get there first for our members.”
