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.

Coming Soon: Verdicchio Metodo Classico

Michele Boscia

Italy's best classic method sparkling wines are made of native grape varieties that are high enough in acidity to provide the right base wine, and Verdicchio is a perfect candidate, particularly from Matelica. The vivid, lively flavor of the Verdicchio grape grown at some altitude is complemented here by the smoky, leesy note from aging on the lees. Excellent aperitif or seafood wine from this longtime (certified) organic producer.

Fabio Marchionni, owner and winemaker of Colle Stefano, is finally coming to CA after 10 years of working with us. He will be in San Francisco all week next week showing off the first commercial release of his sparkling Verdicchio. Please contact us to find out how to meet Fabio and taste the bubbles. In addition to touring around with our SF sales team, he will be pouring his wine for both the trade and the general public at the Slow Wine Tasting on Thursday January 29th and he will be pouring his wine at dinner service on Friday evening at A16 in Rockridge along with our producer of Cesanese from Lazio, Casale della Ioria.
