About Us

FineWineCollector.com was founded in 2002 by Edward Mackauf in San Jose, California (south of Napa Valley).  In 2017, it was acquired by Jim Shaw of The Shaw Collection and relocated to San Diego, California.  From our inception, we have always been an Internet business designed to sell The Finest Wines at the Finest Prices.  Our wines are only offered via the web and our email list.  We are an Internet business that truly lives up to our name; we only sell fine wine.  Additionally, we only sell wine that our research indicates is still tasting great.  We do not sell wine that is considered “Past Maturity”, nor do we sell any wine that has been improperly stored.

FineWineCollector.com specializes in California cult wines, First and Second Growth Bordeaux, Rare Champagne as well as some of the finest wines from Burgundy, Rhone, Italy and Australia. We only purchase wine that has been properly stored and acquired from reliable sources.  All of our wines are kept in a temperature and humidity controlled wine cellar at our facility in San Diego, California.   Not only do we sell the finest wines in the world, but we frequently have the lowest prices in the entire country according to Wine-Searcher.com.  We look forward to being your "go to" place for fine and rare wines!!

We enjoy providing special services to our clientele.  Sure, we have an easy to use shopping cart for your convenience, but if you prefer ordering over the telephone, have any questions, or want advice don’t hesitate to call.  We will usually be available to talk to you, and always respond to email within 24 hours (if not within a few minutes).

With the continued support of our customers, we will be here a long time living up to our motto:

The Finest Wine at the Finest Prices
