About Baron Herzog:
The Baron Herzog brand is known for outstanding variety and value. With a history of reliable quality dating back to 1985, Baron Herzog wines offer something for every palate. They trace their winemaking origins back nine generations, to Phillip Herzog, who made wine in Slovakia for the Austro-Hungarian court more than a century ago. Phillip’s wines were so appreciated by Emperor Franz-Josef that the emperor made Phillip a baron. Baron Herzog wines, a line of premium yet moderately priced California varietals, are named to commemorate that honor. These award-winning wines are handcrafted by winemaker Joe Hurliman for immediate consumption or short-term aging, and are widely available nationwide.
Made from the finest grapes from some of California’s most respected vineyards, Herzog Wine Cellars Special Reserve wines constitute the winery’s flagship ultra-premium wines. The relentless quest to make the best wines possible was the major motivation behind the construction of the Herzog Wine Cellars winery in Oxnard. Designed with small-lot winemaking in mind, Winemaker Joe Hurliman has complete control starting from the growing season. The Reserve line
includes several varietals and production of these wines is extremely limited, with fewer than 10,000 cases bottled annually. Members of the Herzog Cellar Club receive quarterly shipments of these Special Reserve wines that have been hand-selected by Winemaker Joe Hurliman. These wines consistently receive high scores and ratings from major critics and
wine publications, truly making this brand the winery’s flagship line of wines.
