While most include California in the new world wine category, California could also be regarded as the newest old world wine country. Afterall, California winemaking traditions date back to the late 1700’s, when Spanish missionaries introduced winemaking to California from Mexico. The combination of almost 250 years of wine making traditions and experience, our modern-day drive for innovation and improvement, and an ideal climate to grow grapes, makes California one of the best places on earth to make outstanding wine.
And that’s where The Vineyard Cellars come in! Founded in late-2000, we are Europe’s only exclusive Californian wine merchant specialising only in small-production, high quality wine from the Golden State. We work in a "hands on” style, directly with our producers and bring the wine to you under strict temperature control so that the bottle arrives at your table in peak condition.
Apart from offering our wines for sale through this web site, we can also arrange private tours to any of our producers, advise on wines for cellaring or more immediate drinking and provide you with detailed tasting notes and recommendations based upon our many years of experience in the field of Californian wine! The award-winning Vineyard Cellars is regarded as the industry leader in our profession.
