Discover Fine California Wines
California is the largest and most important wine region in the United States. With roots dating back to the 18th century, California wine nevertheless did not receive international recognition until the Judgment of Paris in 1976, during which Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon put this region on the map for fine wine. California is home to a complex array of climates and terroirs, allowing for a great variety of wines and styles. You may also like our other wine gifts, like our Chardonnay wine gift set!
The Millesima team has hand-picked bottles for the California Gift Set, representing 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 flavors.
The California Gift Set contains three unique bottles from well-known producers: Ridge Vineyards is a famed Californian wine estate founded in 1962 and based in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but with vineyards spread over several areas of the state; Seghesio is a producer based in California's Sonoma Valley. They are best known for wines made from the Zinfandel grape variety; and Stags Leap Winery is one of the oldest estates in the Stags Leap District and produces intense, fine and high-quality wines.
