Our Story

Wine is agricultural, artisanal and meritocratic -find the right vineyard, work smart and hard, and you can make great wine.

Yet, in this crowded market, dominated by large wineries and consolidated distributors, it's not easy for small wineries. They are swimming with sharks.

We have always been rooting for the underdog. We are here to help you find that piece of the market you will claim as your own, because you've earned it.
