Cameron Hughes has built a massive following of wine fans who seek quality wines at value prices. He is a “negociant” by trade, someone who works with growers and wineries directly to source juice from some of the world's prized appellations.. Once identified, he private-labels in one of his numbered, designated “lots.” From Costco to your local wine shop, Cameron’s wines are turning up everywhere.
See what Cameron had to say when we sat down with him to hear what piqued his interest in wine (short answer: growing up in Modesto with a dad who worked for Gallo), and how Cameron Hughes Wines became what it is today (probably has something to do with his motto for life: “Don’t sweat the small stuff…outsource it.”) Click here to watch the video interview- The Daily Sip’s first official winemaker video feature!
