Wine Spots Wines - Discover your favorite spot

Wine Spots Wines was inspired by Daniel LeFrancois's travels throughout the world. While backpacking through France, Daniel was enjoying a glass of wine at a café near Montmartre in Paris, contemplating his next adventure, when he spilled a drop of wine onto his map, landing next to Saint-Émilion. This inspired him to continue his journey to Bordeaux and ignited his love of wine. That "spot" on the map became a treasured souvenir, one that would remind him of all the great moments he experienced on that trip.

As Daniel became more involved in the world of wine, he reflected upon his years of traveling and found himself remembering the wines he enjoyed on his adventures. When his dream of crafting his own wines became a reality, Daniel knew that he wanted his wines to combine his passion for wine and travel.

Thus was born Wine Spots, a collection of wines that explores the finest wine regions around the world. Daniel works with some of the best vineyards and top winemakers to produce wines that capture the distinctive qualities and terroir that define these regions. Explore California through our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cuvée 38 Red Wine Blend, Carneros Pinot Noir, and Monterey Chardonnay, then journey to Australia, France, and beyond…
