Premium California wines to buy in 2018

Anne Krebiehl MW picks out 33 exciting Californian wines that impressed her at a recent tasting in London...

Sunshine in St James’s Street spelled the right kind of weather for a tasting of premium Californian wines in May, and the self-styled ‘American-inspired’ restaurant Avenue was the perfect backdrop, a space flooded with light that’s dedicated to contemporary, sophisticated American dining.

The tasting was hosted by four UK wine merchants who have championed Californian wine and built up enviable portfolios of both blue-chip estates and high-achieving newcomers – Vineyard Cellars, The Wine Treasury, Roberson Wine and Flint Wines.
