Walker Wine Company

Walker Wine Company is dedicated to the acquisition and sale of fine and rare wines, available to ship nationwide. Founded by Walker Strangis in Los Angeles in 2017, the online retail business specializes in sourcing older, interesting wine and back vintage bottles of excellent provenance for private, individual buyers as well as a growing number of restaurants. Above and beyond the high-priced gems that clients know about and request, Walker puts forth a thoughtful and curated selection of wonderful and oftentimes under the radar producers and vintages. Personalized service and unparalleled expertise coupled with genuine passion for the classic wines of the world, the inventory online serves as a starting point for those who want to add to or expand their collection. Walker encourages those who love wine to build upon their curiosity with focus and purpose.

Walker Strangis

Walker Strangis began his career in wine after a decade in the entertainment industry. He entered the fine wine auction business in 2006 full time and worked at four of the world’s largest auction houses for more than a decade—including Christie’s and Zachys. Intimately involved with each step of the auction process, from cataloguing and appraisals to operations, inspections and negotiating terms of sale, he has appraised cellars totaling in excess of $22MM and managed the global sale of over $100MM in investment grade wine. From 2009 to 2013, Walker spent considerable time in Hong Kong developing and working in the evolving auction market during its most formative period. Walker brokers highly sought-after bottles produced in classic wine regions—namely Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, Piedmont, California and Spain—and tracks down coveted vintages. A modern boutellier, his personal penchant for old, rare and storied producers and vintages has created a cluster of passionate connoisseurs, collectors and sommeliers who constantly exchange knowledge about wine far beyond the norm. He is often curating wine-centric dinners and has become an active member of several lively wine groups that dine regularly to pair their collections with chef tasting menus.
