U.S. Wine Imports, distributor of specialty wine based in Ann Arbor, Mich., is seeking to expand its Oregon portfolio. This firm has eight sales reps and just celebrated 10 years of business. They sell primarily to restaurants and independent retailers but do work with larger chains such as Target, Kroger, Whole Foods, Costco, Cost Plus, etc. They are looking to buy between 2-24 pallets a year (depending on FOB price), and more if the wine is suitable for chain business.
Please note: The Oregon Wine Board makes no guarantees about this business. It is recommended that your winery exercise due diligence when accessing this opportunity and do not send samples before connecting with a distributor principal.
