Oliver McCrum Wines has been importing small production Italian wine and distributing to fine retail and restaurant establishes throughout California since 1994. Over time, our portfolio of producers has steadily grown to over 45 producers from 15 different regions of Italy. We look for typical Italian wines with clarity and freshness, usually made from indigenous Italian grape varieties using clean, transparent winemaking techniques and no obvious use of oak.

'Finally we can give an opinion on the 2013 vintage! The vintage was delayed by about two weeks. We had a magnificent September, and only two days of light rain in October, which did no harm to the grapes still hanging. 

We started on the 24th of September with the Dolcettos, then we stopped picking from the 5-8th October because the grapes were wet. We re-started on the 9th, and finished on the 18th with our Barolo estate. 

In the cellar the wines are great, with good acidity and great structure and color.'
