A Unique Point of View
Luxe Vintages brings a fresh perspective and a unique point of difference to the wine and spirits business. Our principals
offer broad-based business experience and success in the wine and spirits marketplace. Our importing/brokering business
developed naturally after years of success the luxury wine and food accessories segment. Our company leaders have
extensive experience in wine & spirits, product marketing, public relations, promotion (both on-and off-premise),
brand-building and sales management.
Our wine & spirits experience includes developing and managing programs for Somerset-Schieffelin (Dom Perignon,
Dom Ruinart), Remy Amerique (Italian wine portfolio, Antinori), Glenlivet, Bacardi, Miller Brewing, Kronenbourg, Diageo, and
others. Further, our staff have also served at senior management level positions with such global corporations as Kraft
Foods, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Pepperidge Farm, Citibank, Young & Rubicam, General Electric, and many others. We believe that no import company comes to market with the aggregate skills set we have. We are not modest about that - just
as you should not be modest about your wines or your spirits.
Our mission is to aid in the development of wine and spirits brands to provide our select distributors with products that their
restaurants, retailers, and consumers want to buy and consume. In today's competitive marketplace, distributors have
neither the time nor the inclination to focus their sales force's time on wines that have not been developed into brands. Consumers are passionate about brands and Luxe Vintages helps create brands that sell and connect with consumers to create a loyal following.
Simply put, "wines and spirits don't just sell, but wine and spirits brands do because consumers seek them out by name."
We help build wines and spirits into brands that get focus ... that get attention ... that sell while establishiing a deep
emotional connection with consumers, ultimately driving brand loyalty and brand growth.
We take great pride in our selection of wines and spirits and our wine makers and distillers. We take the time to research the
finest wines and spirits from around the world that represent “world class” selections. We are about discovery - unique wines
and spirits, smaller artisanal and family owned producers, wines and spirits with a compelling story. Unlike many of our
competitors, we take the time to understand your wines and spirits and can best prepare a strategy to get those wines and
spirits to market in the right venues with the best price-value relationship.
Many artisanal wines and spirits get lost in the mega-mass market arena or with distributors that focus only on the “next
big thing.” We work exclusively with distributors who share the same values we do. We have high standards and know how
to strategically build businesses with the right team in place to ensure quality in product deliverables and marketplace
execution. We believe in partnership selling and in seamless service from our producers to consumers.
This is an exciting time to be in the wine and spirits business as research shows that wine and spirits drinkers have become
more sophisticated and have moved up from commodity selections to more complex and artisanal offerings. Consumers want
to discover and learn about interesting artisanal wines and spirits in the same way they have learned about artisanal foods.
The Story of Luxe Vintages is simple: we market smaller, artisanal wines and spirits, and carefully craft them into succussful
brands - brands that create a passionate connection with consumers.
