“Our version of a ‘trophy bottle’ is anything made by Maria Jose from Lopez de Heredia. We have 20 vintages of her wines on our list dating back to the 1960s. Her wines stand as testament that throughout all the technological advancement the world of wine has seen, sometimes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” —Michael Muser
