Porthos | The Wine Insiders

The Wine Concierge Difference.

If you don't yet have a Wine Concierge, you may be curious about the benefits. Porthos, based in the California wine country, provides a portfolio of Wine Concierge services for many of the most prestigious private cellars in America. These services include:

  • ACCESS to the most sought after trophy wines and California "cult" wines, plus a plethora of the highest rated international treasures.
  • ADVICE on the finest undiscovered 'micro-production' boutique wines rarely available outside Napa Valley, and
  • ADVENTURES such as private tours and tastings at the most spectacular wineries in Napa, Sonoma and Tuscany.

Porthos is proud to be the Napa Wine Concierge service for select American Express Card Members, Neiman Marcus "InCircle" client rewards program as well as the Andrew Harper "Hideaway Report" private travel club and their world-wide membership.

Founded over a decade ago, Porthos has built an extremely loyal clientele by providing world-class customer service to its subscribers. Collectors enjoy the cellar “portfolio management” perspective, menu pairings, and recommendations customized to each oenophiles’ palates. The Porthos team samples several thousand wines annually and features the best-of-the-best 1% to our discerning audience. The Porthos tasting team includes individuals with a combined 100+ years of experience in the wine industry and standard panel tastings are conducted ‘blind’ to ensure no biases. Hence, all wine recommendations have passed a rigorous sampling process and been reviewed according to a proprietary ratings matrix. In fact, many of Napa's most renowned winemakers and winery owners rely on Porthos to provide insider recommendations (via their exclusive Vintners Club) to use as quality benchmarks while they are blending their own award-winning wines.
