About The Company
The Wine Club
The Company’s Founder and Managing Director, Michael Reyes, started his wine journey shortly after graduating from college in California in the 70s. His first trip to the Napa Valley was in 1978, a couple of years after that fateful and historic Judgment of Paris event, in which a Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay were selected as Best of Class by a French panel of judges after a blind tasting competition with top classified growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundies. This was nothing less than a stunning upset as the judges sat in disbelief. The seminal event held at the Paris Intercontinental Hotel firmly started Napa Valley’s ascent into the rarefied club of the world’s greatest wine regions, which it is today and has been for a number of years.
In 2006, the Company was established to import and distribute the leading brands of Napa Valley as well as an extensive selection of fine wines from California’s other premium wine regions, notably Sonoma, Monterey, Paso Robles, the North Coast and Lodi. THE WINE CLUB exclusively imports and represents the wines of Caymus, Shafer, Duckhorn, Grgich Hills, Chappellet and Cliff Lede, all iconic world-class brands that are consistently outstanding from vintage to vintage and have received the highest accolades and critical reviews from the wine critics and press. The current portfolio features over 20 brands, ranging from affordable everyday values to ultra-premium wines. Our wholesale accounts include many top hotels and restaurants, and our Tasting Room in Makati also features a Wine Bistro that focuses on wine country cuisine, artisanal cheese and charcuterie and Prime Steaks that complement the fine selection of wines on offer. As a courtesy to our customers, corkage fees are waived for wines purchased at the Tasting Room. The premises are also available for private events and dinners that can accommodate up to 35 guests.
