Wine Highlight: Bailiwick Wines

They came from a family of great cooks, where the heart and soul of their family traditions have always been great meals complemented by classic California wines, chosen with care. They are natives of the San Francisco Bay Area, yet they've lived and traveled abroad, gaining an appreciation for Old World food and wine traditions beyond what there is to enjoy in California.  Those traditions and experiences shaped their passion for wines that complement well prepared meals, rather than overpower them.

They started making wine in a basement 25 years ago, and later in various garages, with time acquiring the skills and confidence in preparation for their commercial venture.  Careers in engineering, high technology, and finance consumed their efforts for many years, but you only go around once, so they founded Bailiwick in the fall of 2009.  They now source from vineyards in multiple appellations, seeking differentiated expressions of each varietal.  They travel hundreds of miles each year seeking vineyards and growers aligned with our vision for quality and expressiveness.

The wines they produce are personal; they are what they choose for their own table.  They revel in wines that reward close inspection, that seem to make time slow down as your senses flood with subtle attributes of aroma and taste.  Crafted to harmonize with food, their wines lead to memorable fusions of aroma, flavor, friends, time and place.  

Enjoy them in good health and good company!
