USA

Our range of wines from the USA has never been more appealing having added 3 new agencies and we now offer not just California, but also the best of Oregon and Washington State!

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 we consider ourselves privileged to be able to secure allocations of these top wines each year. Unfortunately there is never enough to go round but we'll do our very best to share them with as many of you as possible.

At Alliance we are out to disprove the old cliché that California can only offer wines at the extremes of the price spectrum and our new range from Cartlidge & Browne does just that. Cartlidge & Browne was founded more than 33 years ago with a commitment to produce value-driven wines from the best vineyards in California's North Coast.

From the south of the state, in Paso Robles, we have the wines from Eberle Estate; founded by Gary Eberle, the original 'Rhône Ranger' who was also one of the first people to champion the Syrah variety in California. These handcrafted wines are always a hit at our tastings and their list of awards is as long as the finish on their Zinfandel.

In Oregon we sought out the very best in Pinot Noir. What sets Lenné Estate apart from other Oregon Pinot Noirs? Location, location, location. The steep south facing slopes are at the perfect elevation, the soils are some of the poorest soil in Yamhill County which results in concentrated Pinot Noirs. Their Pommard clonal selection cuvée proves beyond doubt that great Pinot can be produced outside of the Côte D'Or.

From Washington State we are proud to introduce the range from Spring Valley in Walla Walla. The winemaker may be French but the style is Washington State and the philosophy of winemaker Serge Laville is to listen to the vineyards and allow 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.
