The Pinnacle Collection


An unreasonable indulgence. An unrepentant wine lover’s daydream. An epic dinner party your guests will never forget. As our idea for The Pinnacle Collection began to take shape, more and more reasons emerged for its existence. 

Inspired by The Duclot Collection, an annual 9-bottle case comprised of the titans of Bordeaux, we have issued our own, multinational collection of some of the greatest red wines in the world, comprised 100% of crowned and uncrowned First Growths from Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Tuscany and South Australia. This is a unique luxury collectible that you might employ to overwhelm a colleague, fortify your cellar, or simply reward the deserving. This tempting assortment comes in a handsome wooden box, and shipping is included.
