We are excited to be introducing our new Somm Picks!
Every month we will showcase a relatively small production,
quality wine, meant for everyday enjoyment. Our team of wine professionals have hand-selected these delicious, unique
gems that will not break the bank! To top it off, we have included our personal wine pairings (these are wines we have
gotten to know well as they end up on our dinner table often). Keep a lookout for minimal intervention wines,
grower Champagne, famous winemakers’ second labels, etc.
The Romanee-Saint-Vivant wines are the picture of impeccable harmony; complex, earthy and pure, yet light on the palate and dense in floral flavors. Benchmark is honored to offer an extraordinary selection of Romanee-St-Vivant wines from noble producers such as Louis Latour, Follin Arbelet, J.J. Confuron, and the incomparable Domaine de la Romanee-Conti.
Starting the New Year off right, we have a brand-new special collection yet again, from one of our most valued, repeat collectors that are filled with everything California that every cellar needs! While continuing to collect his favorite, most prized producers, he decided to make room in his cellar for the highly-anticipated release of the 2018 Napa vintage. Collect verticals of Abreu, Andremily, Colgin, and Next of Kin, shop Old Sparky from Schrader, and add 100pt Screaming Eagle to your collection!
This month on The Somm Set we're excited to feature Sommelier Bryan Lipa! Each month we'll be sitting down with a guest sommelier and uncovering their guilty pleasures, cellar staples, and everything in between. Follow as he hand-selects his favorites from our warehouse, giving you the inside scoop on cellar must-haves!
Firmly established in St. Emilion and a stone’s throw from Pomerol, Cheval Blanc wines are rich yet never heavy and are full of complex, powerful perfumes paired with textures often compared to silk and velvet. And since every genesis needs its defining moment, it was the idea of marrying Merlot, the traditional variety used in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, with the Cabernet Franc that gave birth to Cheval Blanc.
We are thrilled to release an exclusive collection showcasing the exquisite, highly-coveted, and most sought-after wines in the world: Domaine de la Romanee Conti. This collector had his eye on the prize when it came to stocking his cellar with nothing but the best. DRC wines express their site, their pedigree, their nuance and character with such precision and consistency that they are often used as a benchmark example for the concept of terroir.
If you are looking for the best Bordeaux has to offer, look no further! We are proud to present to you the highest acclaimed producers from Bordeaux all in one place. Browse with ease and mix and match your favorites or try something exciting and new that you have been eyeing. Start the year on a high note with a timeless First Growth or a splurge-worthy Right Bank beauty.
There is nothing more special than a bottle of Champagne. It marks occasions, even when there is none! What makes a bottle of Champagne unique is its vintage bottlings. These wines celebrate exceptional years in the Champagne region that houses and vignerons alike agree to deserve their own bottling. These wines are the peak of excellence in Champagne.
Just in time for the holidays, this collector has once again graced our cellar with their most prized possessions to make more room in theirs. Collectors should not miss this opportunity to acquire highly-scored and sought-after wines from this cellar with impeccable provenance!
With the winter months upon us, white wine may not be your first go-to; however, here at Benchmark Wine Group, we love white wine no matter the season or temperature outside.
Benchmark Wine Group is celebrating a brand new cellar, from one of our most valued, repeat collectors and is filled with all of our favorite producers! This collector began buying wine from California, Italy and France over the course of 20 years. His dedication and personal relationships with top vintners granted him ability to purchase on-release from top cult mailing lists all over the world. Fill your cellar with top-tier producers like Bond, Hundred Acre Littorai, and Colgin!
Did you know that your favorite fine and rare wine retailer is also direct importing some of the world's most exclusive brands for distribution? Our ever-expanding network of relationships across the wine world has resulted in access to top wines coming directly from the producer's cellars.
A perfect scoring wine is a rare occurrence. Seeking out these unique and exceptional wines is our specialty because we know a great bottle of wine can turn any gathering into a special occasion!
No matter the size or depth of your collection, our acquisitions professionals will work with you through each step of the process to make sure that the experience is as easy as possible.
Randy Dunn purchased the initial land for Dunn Vineyards in 1979 with optimistic hopes of crafting fine wines from Howell Mountain. His hopes were surpassed as Dunn Vineyards is looked to as an example of terroir driven wines for the entire Napa Valley. Dunn takes great pride in his mountain fruit and allows the flavors of the land to come through.
