I have been managing Vino Etc here in Simpsonville S.C. for the past year. In that time, I have been fortunate to have Steve Hadden provide me with knowledgeable information regarding the Grapevine portfolio. Steve is generally easy to get a hold of careful with details, and helpful with my needs. He offers and ability to adjust his in store presentations, so that my customers can all benefit from his knowledge. By that I mean both wine savvy, as well as wine beginners can walk away with information about the brands being presented.

Dealing with grapevine is like doing business with family, on the very best terms - success for both of us depends on working together and there are no games like with "big" companies. We work together to move our customers forward and then everyone wins. Thank goodness we have them!

I have been working with Grapevine Distributors for 2 years & have been very impressed with their professionalism & eagerness to build our South African brands. I have been out on work-withs with the sales force a number of times & have been proud to have them distribute my brands. They have a good knowledge of their customer needs, & are passionate about the brands. I find the management very supportive & enthusiastic about the brands. I hope to have a long relationship with them.

You simply will not find a more complete book in the Carolinas than Grapevine Distributors. Every major wine region (Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany, Barossa Valley, Napa Valley, etc...) in the world is present in strength. When I'm looking for the next "new" thing, I look to Grapevine

I have known and worked with Grapevine Distributors for well over 20 years now. They are a second family to me when I am on the road and working North and South Carolina. They take excellent care of their suppliers and the products.
I find them to be hard-working, industrious people from the top of the company all the way to the reps and drivers. During the years of our association, the Cohen family and the territorial reps have worked, played, and put me up in their homes, as well as feeding me, and, I might add, feeding me quite well.
They have done a tremendous job of selling product for the wineries I have been associated with, whether I am in their territories or not. I know that when I am back at home in Oregon, I can trust them to do the best job for me and the winery I represent.
I would like to take this occasion to again thank everyone in the company for the hard work and dedication they have put in over the long years of our association.

Four Square has been buying wine from Grapevine Distributors since the very first day we opened our doors. The strength of their portfolio and consistently high standards of customer service earned them a considerable presence on the wine list here at Four Square. Those same attributes have maintained that presence, and our relationship with them, for over a decade.

I have been associated with Grapevine Distributors for about 10 years. I can tell you that there is no better family to do business with. Grapevine has an in depth understanding of what it takes in the wine market to get your product placed. Times have changed and Grapevine has stepped up to meet the new challenge. I have found them to be always on time when they pay us. It is a stand up group, that I am proud to have represent David Arthur Vineyards in both North and South Carolina.

As a small family winery, our goal is to work with family distributors who give good service. Grapevine is the perfect example of what we look for. We have been pleased to work with Michael, Scott and David for many years and look forward to being represented by them for many more.
Jo Ann Truchard, Owner - Truchard Vineyards
We like that Grapevine Distributors is a family owned business. Our limited production wines do not get lost in a mega portfolio and our wines are given the attention we think they deserve. The team is enthusiastic about our wines and we are pleased with the placements. Their portfolio is strong and their other suppliers complement our brand in approach and style of winemaking. The team does a good job telling not only our story but also that of Washington State as a world class wine producing region.

Working with Grapevine has been a treat. The size of the company is an ideal fit for me, because I am able to get the extra attention I need to run my wine programs. There service is prompt, courteous, and direct with special care to each one of my locations individual needs. They just "get it", and understand when to engage, and when not to, and someone is always available. Grapevine has catered an entire list to my budget, while keeping it interesting, and delicious. My customers are very happy with the wine I pour.
