I have always been passionate about fine wines. Whether it be tasting them, pairing with food, or sharing them with family and friends, it's something I've always enjoyed. This is one of the many reasons for acquiring one of our businesses under The Cadman Capital Group umbrella: Golden West Wines.
For those new to the series, I have been putting the spotlight on a different company under The Cadman Capital Group umbrella each month. As the Chairman, I’m aware that the group may seem a little abstract, so through this blog series I’m hoping to feature each impressive company.
At Golden West Wines, our goal is to share our love of wine with our customers. We do this by providing high quality wines from small producers at reasonable prices, as well as blue chip wine from the world’s finest producers.
What is Golden West Wine?
Golden West International was originally established in 1976 as an independent fine wine merchant based out of San Francisco, California.
The Cadman Capital Group umbrella acquired Golden West in 2012, to provide US customers with a wine by the bottle delivery service. Clients in Europe were already enjoying this service through Cadman Fine Wines.
Highly respected amongst fine wine lovers, Golden West upholds expertise, traditional values and brilliant talent in securing the world’s finest wines available. It’s number one priority is ensuring customers receive wines of the finest quality and condition. Specializing in the finest wines from the best vintages, Golden West puts an emphasizes the importance of a unique and well-chosen selection.
What's brilliant in my eyes about Golden West is that the wine selection is hand-picked by the team!
Manager Paul Trimming studied gastronomy – the relationship between food and culture, the art of preparing and serving food – before embarking on an over 30-year career in wine. A career which includes sales and marketing, sourcing and buying wine, and account management.
Editor and writer for Golden West Wines, Simon Felton has shared much of his 20 years experience in wine with myself and Paul, sharing our view on the superb value in fine wine.
As advocates for diversity in wine selection, small producers and supporters of the world’s finest wines, I trust them and the rest of the team in picking Golden West Wines’ extraordinary selection.
Some of our carefully chosen selections include fine and rare Bordeaux, premium Californian Cabernet and Vintage Port and Champagne, to name a few.
Single bottle ordering policy
Many wine companies only allow orders in increments of cases, but at Golden West Wines we do something a little different. I believe that having a single bottle ordering policy gives our customers access and freedom of choice to many fine wines.
Working in the wine industry is exciting and continues to amaze me. I take pride in all of the companies in The Cadman Capital Group umbrella because they are all fueled with passion.
I excited to continue sharing our many wonderful businesses with you. I would love to hear your thoughts or experiences with fine wines or with Golden West Wines in the comments below.
