The Company, located in New York, is an importer and distributor of premium boutique wine to the United States market.  Founded in the past fifteen years, the owner’s passion for fine wines has turned into a well-established business with among the highest profit margins in the industry and whose premium selection includes wines from the major wine regions in Europe, North America, and South America.

The team takes great care in hand selecting each wine and then marketing those wines to restaurants, hotels, and specialty retailers.

Sales representatives visit their contracted clients to take inventory and evaluate brand needs.

The company's clientele is known to include some of the most successful businesses in the United States. The company's goal for the future is to continue bringing both known and undiscovered fine wines from around the world into the US market while also expanding into the spirits market.

The company attributes its remarkable success to its ability to tightly handle and manage inventory levels to increase turns and respond quickly to changes in customer demand. The Company has a fantastic wine selection in hand but always makes sure to maintain reasonable levels, whereas many companies struggle with excessive inventory and are left with more than the market demands. Having excess inventory is generally regarded as bad for business because of what it means for inventory turnover and the costs associated with managing it.
Growth & Expansion:
Sales for the US wine and spirits distributors industry are forecast to grow at a 4.86% compounded annual rate from 2017 to 2023, faster than the growth of the overall economy. The US has about 2,000 wine and spirit distributors with annual sales of about $78 billion and over 85,000 employees.
Support & Training:
Following the sale of the business, the current owner is willing to stay on board for up to one to two years to ensure a smooth transition for the right price. The amount of training and support needed will be a factor of the new owner's background as well as their decisions regarding which current employees are retained.
Reason for Selling:
Current owner planning to move back to Europe
