Discover Top California Wines
California is the largest and most significant wine region in the United States. With roots dating back to the 18th century, California wine did not receive national recognition until 1976 in the Judgment of Paris, where Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon put this region on the map in the wine world. California is home to a complex array of climate and terroir, allowing for a great variety of wines and styles in one region.
The Millesima team has picked bottles for the California Classic Wine Gift with three distinctly California styles from well-known producers. These wines are uniquely bold and prized by many. The classic California red wines are big and structured with dark berry fruit and vanilla flavors, while the typical Golden State white wines are weighty with a round palate and tropical fruit.
The California Classic Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles: Hardin is a hidden gem wine from an exclusive group of top California producers creating a luscious and dynamic Cabernet Sauvignon; Orin Swift is one of the most well-known wineries in California creating a cult like following for their unique and exciting wines; and Cakebread Cellars is one of the top wineries in Napa Valley creating high quality wines since 1973.
