Meet the Wine Scouts
Your personal guide to the best in wine and spirits
The world of potent potables can be bewildering. We have a team of seasoned wine and spirits professionals here in Napa who want to get to know you and your tastes. They want to be your Spirit guide, your Sherpa, your go-to guy (or gal) for all things drinkable. When the holiday gifting season rolls around, well, you just found yourself an assistant to make sure everything goes smoothly.
You can take your chances with the blank stares in the big-box store, or you can call us. You might find yourself talking to someone who has perhaps worked a few harvests at a Napa winery, managed a wine retailer, pounded the pavement as a wine rep, or worked the floor as a professional sommelier in a fine dining restaurant. Everyone here takes their vocation seriously, and you'll be able to tell immediately!
