Welcome to VinoQuest

Our Mission

Your Quest for the great wines of the world is finally over - VinoQuest is here! VinoQuest isn't like any other wine business you'll find on the Internet, or anywhere else. That's because VinoQuest's mission is to bring you only the finest wines from around the world. I have been collecting these types of wines for the last 36 years, and every wine for sale on this site has my personal recommendation behind it. Many of them are very expensive due to the combination of high praise in critical wine publications like The Wine Advocate, Vinous, The Wine Spectator, etc., and the laws of supply and demand. However, many of them are relatively inexpensive and because of their quality, reflect much better value than a multitude of wines that cost a lot more.

The Importance of Storage

Provenance (how a wine has been stored) is important for all wines, particularly so for wines that were released two or more years ago. Another reason VinoQuest is unique is because over 99% of VinoQuest's 7,000+ bottle inventory were purchased by me on release at some point over the last 36 years (in many cases directly from the winery, wholesaler or importer) and have been cellared ever since in optimum, even cooler than usual, storage conditions: 53-54 degrees F, 60-75% humidity.

There May Be More Than Meets the Eye

VinoQuest's inventory listing is generally current, but sometimes there is a delay in updating wines that we have recently received or ordered.  Please feel free to ask us about any wine in which you're interested, even if you don't see it listed on the Wines for Sale page. Even if we don't have it, we may be able to obtain it for you. And make sure to check back periodically, as we'll be updating our listed inventory from time to time.
