Importer Connection Service Open for Submissions

A new entry opportunity for overseas brands while helping importers to expand portfolios.


Published:

Starting Wednesday, November 16, 2011, the Wine Enthusiast Importer Connection program is accepting wine submission applications available by clicking here. Wine producers from across the globe who are not currently selling any wines in the American market can apply now to send samples to the dedicated Importer Connection tasting panel. The panel will review the wines and rate them on the 100-point scale; ratings and reviews of wines scoring 80 or above will be released in a monthly e-mail to the wine trade, including importers, distributors, restaurateurs, retailers and press, and will also be posted online with winery contact information on the searchable Importer Connection database coming soon.

Partnered with the American Spirits Exchange Ltd, Wine Enthusiast Importer Connection creates a unique opportunity for producers outside of the U.S. to increase their chances of connecting with a U.S. wine importer. "We are very much looking forward to helping these international wine producers make their long-awaited entrance into the United States," says Wine Enthusiast Chairman Adam Strum. "A large breadth of portfolio and selection is one of the most highly valued aspects of the American wine market. We are very excited to be able to share this program with international producers and American importers to facilitate new relationships."
