Every time you open a bottle of handcrafted wine, you're also unleashing the passion and love of an artist, the winemaker.
Because our primary focus is to specialize in wines that reflect the terroir and vision of the winemaker, Montesquieu Winery does not represent wines that are mass-produced. Every wine we carry is typically produced in less than 1000 cases, and often less than 500 cases. Sometimes we even release special selections of fewer than 100 cases. We believe winemaking is an art, and we celebrate the diversity and individuality of terroir throughout the world, often choosing to import wine that has never been commercially available in the United States. Because most Montesquieu wine offerings are unavailable to American restaurants and retailers, our clients value these wines for their uniqueness and rarity.
Of course not all wines are created equal. Small production does not always result in a wine that is delicious and pleasing to the palate. We craft our Montesquieu wines from domestic fruit in our Napa facility, and we also import wines from around the globe. This is where our team of Montesquieu wine buyers comes in. Montesquieu wines - both those we make ourselves and those we bring in from vineyards around the world - undergo intense scrutiny to ensure that we only offer the best of the best to our clients. Our Montesquieu wine buyers not only seek small producers, they also are highly selective about which wines we carry. Montesquieu wine buyers taste hundreds of wines and visit scores of vineyards before choosing a deserving few to make available to our clients. As a result, you can be sure every bottle you receive from Montesquieu winery will be of the highest quality.

"The wines from Montesquieu are consistently superlative and our broker, Amanda, knows our tastes and preferences probably better than we do. Whether it's a Vino Verde for the three-digit heat or a Super Tuscan with a T-bone steak, we're covered. Additionally, each Christmas season, we order at least a couple of cases with personalized labels for presents to friends and business clients. The gift bottles are elegant and easy – not to mention tasty! Here's looking forward to the next ten years." – David L., Midland, TX

"I have been working with Montesquieu since 2007. They are a phenomenal resource for small production wines from around the world. The Don Zofanor Malbec is the best I have ever had." -- Matthew B., San Diego, CA
"I have been buying wines from the Montesquieu brokers for several years and have recently purchased two of the blind wine tasting kits. The wines were superb, making the parties delightful as well as informative. -- Janet G. of Redding, CA
"I have had numerous compliments from friends and family when drinking wines obtained from Montesquieu. In particular the 2004 Vinyes Poboleda was so good, I ended up getting an additional case to share with a friend." – Tim P., Fairfax, VA
