About Us

Wine Appreciation (formerly The Wine Appreciation Guild) provides wine accessories and wine storage and has done so for over 30 years. In 1973, when The Wine Appreciation Guild formed, there were only a handful of premium California wineries. Many big-name wineries of today were in the planning stages or early stages of establishment.

At that time, the California Wine Advisory Board, operating under the State Department of Agriculture, was the primary provider of wine items and literature to aid in the enjoyment of wine. However, a decree by the Governor of California in 1973 dissolved the Wine Advisory Board.

The Wine Appreciation Guild was formed as the official successor in the distribution of wine accessories, and the publication and distribution of books and educational materials. This carries on a tradition of service that started in 1939.

As the oldest company and the most trusted business in this sphere of the wine industry, we hope you will continue to count on us for the finest wine corkscrews, accessories, wine racking and wine cellars with the best pricing and service.
