PROUDLY supporting small family owned wineries

"Wine sales is more than a job. It's a lifestyle."


New owner, to Oregon Wine Sales, as of 2018.

By the end of 2011, it became obvious that there was a need for a brand building distribution team, to better support many small wineries in the Northwest. We began Oregon Wine Sales January 1st of 2011. Since then we continue to add suppliers and team members. Wine sales is more than a job. It's a lifestyle.
