A PORTFOLIO OF WINES FROM THE MOST SIGNIFICANT WINE PRODUCING AREAS IN THE WORLD

About Us

 
Prologue
World Wine HeadQuarters (WWHQ) was established by John Larchet early in the New Millennium, with John's 'The Australian Premium Wine Collection (established 1995) being slimmed down, and incorporated into WWHQ.
Being Irish born, raised and educated, of French Huguenot descent, a few years living in Berlin, married to a Chicago gal who I met in Melbourne, with our Aussie born son Benjamin, and family & friends spread across the globe, assembling a "worldly" portfolio was inevitable.
 
Project
This was and still is a very personal mission. There are "Superstars" that were/are yet to be "discovered" or presented. That is the focus of WWHQ. Again breaking with tradition, my intention is to work with only two or three properties from each source country, ensuring a very clear focus and balance across the WWHQ portfolio.
My selections meet the "Distinctive Style Imprint" that has become the hallmark of WWHQ. Wines that are highly aromatic, and intensely flavored. But above all else, wines that are born with a natural sense of balance and harmony. By definition, wines that do not have any "arms or legs sticking out" (no excessive alcohol, no excessive acidity, no excessive tannins and no excessive oak), will always be more pleasurable to drink.
 
Pedigree
We have been very fortunate to have received over the years, very positive commentary and reviews about our WWHQ Selections from the most respected wine media publications, including the Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Steve Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.
Every bottle of wine selected by WWHQ will have the official WWHQ brand that identifies it as a wine that "exhibits the qualities and distinctiveness that warrants its recognition as one of the world’s finest wines". Exciting times in the world of fine wine.
