Vintage Point emphasizes that “Partners in Wine” signifies not only the relationship of the two founding partners, but the many long-term partnerships they have enjoyed with independent, luxury wine producers and the specialty wine trade that supports them. These brand partnerships may be from Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara, the Pacific Northwest, and select import markets.
In an era of increased wine industry consolidation and globalization the divide between commercial wine and fine wine is greater than ever before. Large wine corporations are tightly focused on big brands and big retail customers. In this business environment, small wineries, restaurateurs, and specialty retailers are at competitive disadvantage and often get little distributor attention to their business needs.
Vintage Point is constructed around a wine commerce that values the special experience of wine and respects the individuality of smaller wine producers. Wine enriches our lives, and it adds inspiration to occasions in measure with its quality and uniqueness. We believe this view is shared by independent wineries and embraced by restaurateurs, fine wine retailers and consumers who seek out interesting wines that distinguish themselves from the commonplace.
Vintage Point offers expertise in general management, winemaking, vineyard operations, international business development and marketing . The company fields a national sales force with significant experience and demonstrated success in selling luxury wines to America’s top restaurateurs and fine wine retailers.
