Discover America's Golden State Wines

America's Golden State is famed for rich, ripe, fruit-laden wines.

The sunshine state of California is the most important wine region in North America and was the first 'New World' region to be recognised internationally as a source of top-quality wines.

Ever since Steven Spurrier's famous Judgement of Paris in the 1970s, the wine world has held the fine wines of California in the same regard as the very best examples from Bordeaux and Burgundy

Today, California produces some of the world’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Zinfandel wines, often from small, family-owned wineries in vineyard areas cooled by Pacific breezes.

One of the Great Names in Champagne

Charles Heidsieck is one of the great names of Champagne and produces some of the finest of all champagnes. Based in Reims, it is the smallest of the Grandes Marques champagne Houses and is best-known for both vintage and non-vintage Champagnes.

Founded in 1851 by Charles-Camille Heidsieck, the original 'Champagne Charlie', the foundation of its modern fame rests on the unrivalled quality of its wines, which receive countless awards and accolades year after year.

This success is attributable to the strength and depth of their winemaking team over the past three decades: Daniel Thibault, Régis Camus, Thierry Roset and Cyril Brun have between them been awarded 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge 16 times. No other house has won more than twice.

Benromach Single Speyside Malt Whisky

Benromach is a traditional Speyside distillery owned by a family of whisky-lovers intent on making single malt the right way with true character.

They keep things simple. A handful of distillers relying entirely on their expertise and senses to make the finest handmade whisky; Speyside single malt matured exclusively in first-fill casks, with a subtly smoky character. It takes just four ingredients – barley, water, yeast and a human touch.

All casks are hand-filled, individually weighed, stencilled by hand and stowed in the traditional dunnage warehouses. Why? Because at Benromach they believe making whisky by hand guarantees genuine character.

Biodynamics - Wine On A Spiritual Level

Biodynamic wine production is an approach to winemaking based upon the work of Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner. In addition to organic practices biodynamic farmers also consider the positioning and rhythmic influences of the sun, moon, planets and stars as guides for when to prune their vines, plant new vines or pick the fruit.

For winemakers the key principle of biodynamic wine production is totally logical. It makes no sense to extol the virtues on the geology of a vineyard, the unique aspects of its soil (its ‘terroir’) and what that imparts to the wine, if that soil is then totally transformed by a mixture of chemicals, herbicides and fertilisers. Healthy soil dictates healthy vines and experience has shown that biodynamic practices give rise to greater purity and precision in the resulting wines.

Vegan & Vegetarian Friendly Wines

For those who adopt a Vegetarian or Veganism lifestyle, choosing a bottle of wine as your preferred liquid refreshment may not be as straightforward as one would think.

Many would believe that a wine labelled as ‘organic’ or ‘biodynamic’ would be a good starting point, but this winemaking process has no bearing on whether the wine will be suitable for vegetarians or vegans. What is important is how the wine is treated or finished in the final stages of production and it is this which can create a potential moral hazard!

In order to aid the selection process we have put together a collection of wines that are marked as suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
