Benchmark Wine Group is excited to release our newest featured cellar: The Lone Star Cellar.
Assembled by a successful Texas gentleman, this collector began buying wine in Napa Valley when he and his wife first visited 15 years ago. Their frequent visits and big buying power allowed them to befriend some of the top vintners in both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. With rare exception, his vinous holdings were purchased on release from allocations of top California Cult mailing lists such as Colgin, Hundred Acre, Araujo, and Harlan with the rest from reputable retailers in the Houston area.
Then one night at a business dinner he discovered Château Lafite Rothschild. That entrée into the Old World started a buying spree, beginning with First and Second Growth Bordeaux, including Petrus and Le Pin, then onto some of the top Rhône wines in the world.
The entirety of this collection was kept in a professional, temperature-controlled storage facility, where we sent our team to inspect the conditions and carefully pack each bottle for transport to ensure provenance and safe delivery to Napa.
Collectors should not miss this opportunity to acquire highly-scored and sought-after wines from this cellar with impeccable provenance, all with Benchmark’s Provenance Guarantee.
