Wade Cellars has separated itself from the crowd as an authentic producer of approachable California wines and a principled advocate for the wine industry. Established as a partnership between Dwyane Wade and the Pahlmeyer family, Wade Cellars strives to make the wine industry more inclusive to people of all backgrounds by consciously growing production and creating opportunities for access and education to all those who choose to indulge in this affordable luxury.
Wade Cellars was born out of Dwyane Wade’s love of the great wines of Napa Valley. Inspired by the opulent Cabernet Sauvignons of this famed American wine- growing region, Dwyane sought the advice and mentorship of his friend Jayson Pahlmeyer to collaborate in the production of Wade Cellars. Since the first vintage in 2012, the production range has expanded to a diverse collection of wines that are inspired by California’s rich winemaking tradition with a healthy dose of DWade style.
