The Redd Collection's name is a derivation of the collector responsible for the initial massive collection that began our store, and also serves an an homage to the titles of historic single owner auctions. The Redd Collection is a retail wine business primarily focused on fine & rare wines. It is a natural off-shoot of Wine Cellar Services (www.winecellarservices.net) that was begun by co-founder, Michael Carpenter.
With 20+ years in the wine trade, and a lifetime in the Napa Valley, sourcing interesting private collections & new boutique producers is not just the career of choice, but our passion.
We closed our store-front/tasting-bar in Los Angeles and remain fully active in retail sales with worldwide shipping capabilities from our new base in the Sonoma Wine Country.

A note on our Pre-Arrival offerings
The Redd Collection is a Trading Member LIV-EX, the largest global wine marketplace with trades exceeding $100M annually.
We have also been buying with integrity from suppliers in Europe for the past decade with zero issues. These commercial & private sources have a solid track record going back 20+ years and most store their wines in the underground Octavian Vaults in England that were dug out in the 1920's. Octavian currently protects more than 1,000,000 cases.
We offer ONLY wines that are in possession of our suppliers, and we generally do not offer anything in very small quantity as it is unlikely to remain available when the time comes for us to request it. There is no "sell-then-hunt" process here.
To reiterate, if the wines are not actually part of inventory, buyers will be notified immediately and WILL NOT wait for us to find it. We have delivered 100% of all pre-arrivals, and will continue to do so. If you desire a wine that is not listed with us, send your wish list and we will complete the search BEFORE any of your funds are committed.
The unfortunate debacle & bankruptcy of retailer Premier Cru has skyrocketed our sales since many of their disappointed buyers have gotten their orders filled with us instead. If you are part of the creditors owed, we send our good wishes on the recovery. If we can attempt to fulfill your order(s), we stand by ready to assist. If we are able to do so quickly, it could possibly help in showing that PC was not making a good faith attempt to secure your wines.
