European Wine Resource is an importation and distribution company located in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in rare and collectible European wines.
Collectors who have been maintaining rare wine portfolios since 1970 founded EWR in August of 2006. This accumulation has grown into one of the largest collections of rare European wine in North America.
The majority of our inventory is purchased pre-release (or en primeur) and are cellared in original cases since their inception. We have invested an enormous effort to ensure the quality of our wines. Our inventory is maintained in two separate state-of-the-art storage facilities and nurtured at 58°F and 65% humidity. In addition to our own inspections, our sources are well respected and long established in the industry and we fully guarantee the authenticity of each bottle. To help further reassure our customers, we can also provide transmittable digital images of our selections before they’re purchased.
Although a great emphasis has been placed on classified French Bordeaux, Italian wine, and Vintage Port, you will also find excellent assortments of Burgundies, Sauternes, and Rhone wines.
The wines we offer will constantly change, as we are always abreast of the European markets. Over the course of the next few months, we intend to expand our selections by adding a wealth of historical vintages and additional regions to our menu including, German Rieslings, and assortments from the American classics.
While, the Internet has recently become a prominent vehicle for purchasing wine, you may have found many unrealistic offerings. For our customers it should be comforting to know that all the wines we offer are in fact owned by us and are always physically on-hand in our facilities.
We take great pride in our company and want to earn your satisfaction and respect. If there is anything we can do to improve our service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
