Oakville Wine Merchant
“Going to a winery is fantastic, but you’re limited to tasting wines from only one winery. We weave a unique experience for our guests, where they have the luxury of enjoying wines from four or five wineries, regions, or countries.” Steve continues, “When you make a reservation with me, I custom create an experience based on wines you love… or where you want to go in your wine journey.”
Oakville Wine Merchant is among a rare breed of wine tasting experiences. Where an array of appellations’ and wineries’ varietals flow into tailored tastings, making this one of Sonoma County’s singularly significant destinations. Within its crisp, chic elegance, you’ll discover one of California wine country’s most esteemed connoisseurs of exceptional, distinctive wines. Among a sea of common-place winery hosts, Steve Morvai is a touchstone to superb tasting experiences, as well as a source for accessing rarer reserve wines. Steve is one who leads wine lovers into the finer selections and vintages, some of which are hidden within the world of wine.
With three decades of winery expertise (including ownership), he chose Healdsburg so he could semi-retire without escaping a world he loves. Steve specializes in custom tailored tastings, where your love for a specific varietal is experienced across an array of appellations, or you can indulge in an assortment of wines all from one valley, appellation, region, or from a myriad of countries around the world.
Whether you’re interested in varietals such as Sangiovese, Petit Manseng, or Bonarda, or sparkling wines and premium champagnes (some rivaling Dom for a mere pittance), Oakville is an oasis of rare reserve, boutique, and exclusive wines – some of which are only allotted imports of a few hundred cases to the United States per year (guests are limited to one or two bottles per purchase, so all members can enjoy these rare wines).
* Steve also provides tastings with wines from wineries who are currently not booking reservations. So, if you can’t get into your preferred winery, be it in Sonoma County or Napa Valley, Steve will arrange a custom tasting for you and your guests with such wines at Oakville.
Reservations are required for Steve Morvai’s custom connoisseur tasting experience.
