It takes more than a dance or two to get acquainted. - Mark Pope, Founder & CEO
Napa, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2011
Focusing on rare and highly-coveted wine releases, the Bounty Hunter catalog has become an access vehicle to Wine Country for connoisseurs across the U.S. The company emphasizes highly-rated, limited-production wines from California, and also includes forays into France, Italy, Spain, the Southern Hemisphere and beyond. Proprietor Mark Steven Pope, “A.K.A the Bounty Hunter,” estimates that he and his team of Wine Scouts taste more than five-thousand wines each year in their pursuit of “great stuff.” Recognizing the company’s standards of quality and the value of national exposure with placement in a widely distributed luxury catalog, prominent wineries present their new releases for consideration each year, and when selected, are offered to customers in the Bounty Hunter wine bar, catalog and online at their multi-faceted website; http://www.BountyHunterWine.com. The catalog features the “best-of-the-best” from California (such lauded producers as Joseph Phelps, Justice, Nickel & Nickel, PlumpJack and Ramey) alongside 12 “steals and deals,” a select dozen wines representing extraordinary value. The catalog also offers 12 different wine clubs ranging from $49.95 monthly to $599.95 quarterly.
New customers to the Bounty Hunter are assigned a “Wine Scout,” a personal sommelier based in Napa Valley. Bounty Hunter’s Wine Scouts are made up of a talented group of wine professionals who share their passion, knowledge and experience with their customers to best serve them in their wine needs. This unique relationship emphasizes the company’s approach to high-touch customer service. As Pope says, “It takes more than a dance or two to get acquainted.”
In addition to the company’s retail business, the Bounty Hunter produces more than 25 wines with winemaker Tim Milos under a variety of labels (e.g. Broken Spur, Justice, Pursuit, Streamside, Tin Star, and Waypoint to name a few). The Wine Spectator and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate have given high acclaim to the Bounty Hunter’s Justice Series Collection wines, placing them in the top echelon of wines from California. And, when in Napa, visitors can enjoy these stellar releases at the Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin’ BBQ, a Western-themed saloon featuring some of Northern California’s best BBQ in addition to more than 400 wines from around the world.
