Quirky local wine shop delivering high-quality selection of California wines.
They'll ship practically anywhere and are quite knowledgeable about local shipping and taxation laws.
If they provided information about previous selections, and maybe tasting notes, we'd be pretty happy.
There is so much California wine out there that you could never learn them all, taste them all, or buy them all. Wine stores like the WineGlobe provide California wine clubs to help you get access to the best California wines.
The WineGlobe's brick-and-mortar store is located in the San Francisco Bay Area (on the peninsula) and this is a particularly fine-wine centric community. Proximity to Napa and oodles of Silicon Valley dough have made Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Atherton the epicenter of California wine consumption. The WineGlobe is accustomed to picky customers who expect only the finest. This means when it comes to California wines, they know what they're doing and they choose carefully.
Yay for you!
Something we really love about the WineGlobe California Wine Club is that they're looking for "varietal correctness" among all the other criteria they use to choose their wines. To us, this is so important for the average consumer because it helps you understand what makes a Sonoma Cabernet different than a Sonoma Zinfandel, and gives you the tools to judge whether a wine is of excellent quality and to what extent it has been messed with by the winemaker. Remember though, terroir affects the way a wine tastes, too, and that's not covered by varietal correctness.

Are California wines really all that special?
That was the question posed in 1978 at a fateful San Francisco blind tasting event where a Stag’s Leap Cabernet won top honors over many of France’s most respected Premier Crus. The result was great news for California winemakers, but a huge upset for French winemakers, who had long been considered to produce superior wine.
Now it’s your turn to discover the many world-class wines coming from California. Each month you will receive two bottles of wine from the many distinct winegrowing regions of California; each wine providing a taste of the varietal, and the unique terroir of the region.
At WineGlobe, we have a very simple system for selecting wine club wines: We taste them, talk about them, and evaluate them. We look for excellent quality, varietal correctness, and uniqueness. Many of our wine club wines are from small producers who are fanatical about the quality of their grapes and the quality of their wines.
WineGlobe invites you to see what all of the California fuss is about.
Now there is no reason to miss out on the great finds of our professional buyers. Each month you as a member will automatically receive these gems at your home or preferably at your office (an office address generally assures faster and more efficient service). You can cancel your membership at any time. You can also arrange to give a gift membership to a friend or business associate. You can specify the length of time of the gift membership during checkout. Just give us the name and address, and we will handle all the details.
Remember: There is a three month minimum membership, but you may cancel your membership at any time after the first three months.
Please note: As a member of this club, you will receive two excellent bottles of wine for substantially reduced prices.
