Wine, like all high art, is highly subjective. What is poetry to some may be gibberish to another. Its appreciation is contingent upon a unique blend of sensory perception and tastes. The elements that create an outstanding bottle of wine and its subsequent enjoyment are myriad and can be exhausting. Yet, at its best, wine transcends its physical attributes to become something extraordinary, something unforgettable. Our goal is to make your wine experience something to celebrate. To ensure you enjoy the perfect wine at the perfect time, Dominion Wines has reinvigorated the ordinary procedure. We sift through the milieu, so your custom-made wine celebration is simply a mouse click or phone call away. Our wines are sourced from only the most respected and critically acclaimed producers, are rigorously inspected for quality, and our Dominion Sommeliers™ are committed to finding you the perfect wine for any occasion. We are ardent wine lovers who celebrate every aspect of wine. We strive to transcend the ordinary; to brand your Dominion wine experience a remarkable one.
Why scores? Why does critical acclaim matter?
Finding the perfect wine can be an arduous task. It seems so much of wine is ambiguous and fluid. The science of fermentation, vintage variation, the dizzying list of grape varietals. These are but a few variables in the labyrinthian maze one must traverse to fully consider a wine purchase. Wine labels and the often highly esoteric language of wine descriptions can be maddeningly opaque and offer little insight into what is actually in the bottle. That is where a score can be very helpful. In a sea of options, critic scoring can offer a life vest; a tool to help “hedge your bets” against making an uninformed decision. Indeed, studies show that people rely on wine scores more as the price of the wine increases (Snow, Weckman. 2018).

Dominion Sommelier™ Program
When you order from us, you have the option to be assigned a Dominion Sommelier™ at an additional fee (unless you are a member of Dominion Coterie). Your personal Dominion Sommelier will offer a quick consultation to evaluate your wine preferences and be on hand to assist in any questions and offer suggestions based on your initial consultation. Your Dominion Sommelier can guide you through the process and follow up, or step back and let you take the reins. Because, in the end, we want you and your wine to be given the respect you deserve.
