We're both locally owned companies that enjoy a great deal of local support, so the alliance is a natural.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 14, 2009
Small Vineyards, LLC, a Seattle-based importer of small production Italian and Spanish wines with distribution in 32 states and Canada, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Noble Wines Ltd. of Seattle. Noble will be the sole distributor for the Small Vineyards wine portfolio in Washington State beginning February 1.
The agreement marks the continued rise of Small Vineyards in the fine wine import marketplace, allowing the Company to capitalize on seven years of uninterrupted growth in its home market. For Noble Wines, the agreement consolidates its position as the premiere destination for world-class Italian wines, and underscores the company's commitment to provide the best boutique wine portfolio in the state.
"Small Vineyards is a major portfolio acquisition for us, both qualitatively and quantitatively," reports Greg Nelson, Vice President and co-Founder of Noble Wines Ltd. "They are the leader in small production Italian wines, and this portfolio allows Noble to offer a full range of fine wines from Italy, from small production to large, from value wines to collectibles. It is a principle goal of ours to be the unquestioned leader in Italian wines, and we believe Small Vineyards makes this possible."
"Noble Wines' rare combination of market share and exceptional fine wine reputation makes it the ideal partner for Small," says Josh Hanson, Director for Small Vineyards. "We're both locally owned companies that enjoy a great deal of local support, so the alliance is a natural."
Noble Wines and Small Vineyards will be available to present more information and a selection of wines to the press by appointment.
