An Inviting Wine Shop in Yountville Offers a Deep Selection of Local and International Wines and Lots of Friendly Advice.
Four years ago, when partners Daniel Pressey and Master Sommelier Kevin Vogt decided to open a boutique wine shop in Yountville, they wanted to create a place where customers would have access to some of the finest wines available, and also provide a friendly, welcoming environment where customers would be comfortable asking about and discussing wines.
Wine Country Connection has now established itself as a go-to place for wine enthusiasts of all levels. Every week, their team searches for the highest quality wines available to have on hand for their customers. It’s their extensive selection process and constant search for great, new and interesting wines that sets their company apart in a competitive retail field.
“Wine Country Connection has a team of veteran buyers that tirelessly taste from seventy to one-hundred new wines each week in search of the absolute best wines available. We cast an educated eye on all aspects of the wine, everything from color, intensity, aromatics, structure, depth, length, overall balance, and we are always looking for wines that are varietally correct and without flaws. Your palate immediately recognizes a wine that is absolutely remarkable, and that’s precisely what we look for. We are extremely selective, and that’s what sets us apart,” said Master Sommelier Kevin Vogt.
The 900 square-foot shop feels cozy and intimate, a place where clients feel at home.
It’s a credit to that process that Wine Country Connection has found favor with a wide variety of wine aficionados, and also newcomers who are interested in learning about the wine country’s local bounty. Daniel, Kevin, and Kevin’s wife Lynda take pride in being able to share their knowledge with those who are interested in learning about wine and also serious collectors who are looking for the latest highly-rated, limited production wines. Often, relatively unknown wines selected by the team will later end up receiving national acclaim.
The 900 square-foot shop feels cozy and intimate, a place where clients feel at home. Whether a customer comes in to spend twenty dollars on a bottle or is interested in investing thousands in dressing up a cellar, they’re all treated with respect and a personal touch. Daniel and Kevin also pride themselves on the relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere, where the owner’s dogs can be part of the welcoming committee, making it an easy place to sit and chat and discover the perfect wine for any occasion.
