The state that produces 90% of all US wine, California, remains at
the heart of our US portfolio. Our headline act is Paul
Hobbs who has twice managed to achieve the golden 100
points from Robert Parker. Paul's wines are much sought after and

nature to take its course producing characterful wines where
the terroir does the talking.
The range is completed with our fun and fruity White Zinfandel
called Headlands Cove - the perfect aperitif.
