The Napa Valley

Napa Valley

Some of the most talked about, sought after, limited production wines come from California. However they currently only make up around 1% of overall investment-grade wine.

One of the main reasons for this is that the investment-grade wine market in California is only around 20 years old. We see huge potential investing in the very best Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley wines.

The majority of collectible California wines are Cabernet Sauvignons from the Napa Valley, with Screaming Eagle perhaps representing the pinnacle. With a miniscule production between 500-800 cases per vintage, demand from a global market is insatiable. Other first tier estates are Verite, Sine Qua Non, Harlan and Shafer.

The highest price ever paid for a bottle of wine was $500,000 for an Imperial size (6 litres) bottle of 1992 Screaming Eagle.

Notable vintages – 2012, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2004, 2002, 2001, 1997, 1994, 1991
