Got Wine Ambassador?

We sure do! Our own Chanceleir John Barakett is a Wine Ambassador for Boisset Collection. Be a tasting host or join the wine club. Boisset California wineries include JCB, Raymond, Buena Vista, DeLoach and Lyeth.

We believe in creating amazing in-home wine tastings where the wineries come to life and the quality exceeds your expectations. Just like in our tasting rooms, you and your guests can sample the wines first – then if you love them, you can order by the bottle or by the case and save even more. We also reward you, the host, with a 50% discount on your favorite wine selections at the tasting just for opening your home to us. We are sure that you and your guests will have the experience of a lifetime as we transport the elegance of the wine country directly to your home.
