Meticulously hand-crafted in our Petit Chai – a “winery-within-a-winery” – our Reserve wines represent the pinnacle of winemaking at Columbia Crest. Sourced from premier vineyard sites, less than one percent of the finest grape yields will qualify for our Reserve program, and these wines receive the same hands-on care and attention-to-detail associated with the world’s most exclusive boutique wineries.
