We started over 5 years ago but have carefully developed a direct to consumer concept that exceeds other on line retailers.  Focusing on limited wineries that have produced exceptional wines over time, Rob personally chooses all the wines and has not released them to the public till now.  Many of the wines are completely sold out at other retailers.  All of the wines have been carefully stored at a certified and bonded wine storage center in Sonoma County with a long and excellent reputation.
