Testimonials - Grapevine Distributors



Bringing family made wines from around the world to the families of the Carolinas


"Grapevine Distributing is one of the most dependable companies in the wine business, hands down.  Their representatives are stalwart activists for fine wines that are always of impeccable quality and sustainability to the industry.  Deliveries are timely, prompt and never an issue, which in this business deliveries are more often than not a difficulty.  Overall, Grapevine's performance is above par and they maintain a highly appreciated service."

Kevin Burnette, General Manager - Peabody's Wine & Beer Merchants, Boone, NC

We have been working with Grapevine Distributors for 10 + years and I just can't say enough about the company the Cohen family has built.  I couldn't ask for a better partner in the promotion and distribution of my wine.  It is surprisingly rare in this business to have a distribution company that can successfully combine a passion for fine wine & the business acumen necessary to  thrive – Grapevine has those qualities in spades!

Adam Campbell, Owner / Winemaker, Elk Cove Vineyards

"We have had the pleasure of partnering with Grapevine Distributors since our first vintage.  Mike, Scott, and the rest of the team have done a great
job introducing our brand to the markets in North and South Carolina and sales have consistently exceeded our expectations. They have a history of representing the best of Oregon brands and that shows in their ability to successfully market and place our wines. We tremendously value our
relationship with Grapevine." 

Mary Hansen, Owner, Arborbrook Vineyards

I have already mailed a thank you not to David [Cohen] under separate cover, but on behalf of everyone here at the Bascom, I would like to extend my most sincere gratitude for everything that Grapevine did to make Collective Spirits 2011 a Huge success!!  And I want to especially share with you how important David was/is to that success.  There is absolutely no way we could have accomplished what we did without him.  His attention to detail and commitment, especially to the work I did, was absolutely invaluable!!

Also, please do commend Justin Burns on his role last weekend.  He was here, on call, ready, willing and able to jump right in with great humor and super attitude.

Thank you for sharing your great team with me/us, for all of the wine & your continued support of this extraordinary facility.

All my best,

Elizabeth, The Bascom, A Center for the Visual Arts, Highlands, NC

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.

Jerry Kross, Vino Etc, Simpsonville, SC

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

Drew Procaccini, CSW, O'Darby's Fine Wines & Spirits, Rock Hill, SC

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.

Patrick McElligott, Marketing and Sales, Sineann Winery

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.
