At Cameron Hughes Wine, our philosophy is simple - great wine doesn't have to be expensive.
As a négociant (wine trader), we meet with top growers and producers all over the world, look in every cellar and barrel room, peek behind every door that says "Employees Only." Sometimes we buy wine still in the barrel, and other times we buy "shiners" (wine already in a bottle with no label). Regardless of how we get it, the mission is simple: buy the best possible wine for the best possible price.
Since we don't own vineyards or a winery, we focus on finding the best wine and negotiating the best price. It's a never ending treasure hunt to seek out the "needle in a haystack" wines, and it's not unusual for us to go through hundreds of samples before finding one that makes the cut.
All our deals are made discreetly and are typically protected by an agreement to keep the source producer or winery's name secret – it's how we can offer a $100 Napa Cab for $30 a bottle, or a $60 bottle of Pinot for under $20.
We're constantly on the hunt for new deals, and typically release over 30 wines a year. As a result, the variety in our store is always changing, but one thing remains the same: Cameron Hughes stands behind each and every bottle.
