At Uncorked Ventures we are a licensed wine distributor in the state of Callifornia, as well as elsewhere.
Unlike larger national distributors, we are keen to find smaller production family owned wineries and place their wines in our network of restaurant clients. We enjoy creating custom restaurant wine lists for our clients.
For restaurants, you'll notice something different when working with us. To start, we won't show up to our first meeting (or any meeting) carrying a book of the wines we offer. Instead of having a static book, our wine clubs and the time we spend in wine country allows us to continually source wine in real time for our clients.
We'll want to spend time with you to learn about your business and really learn what has worked on your wine list and what hasn't worked. We're also happy to continually adjust your list based on what works and what doesn't.
If you're just opening your restaurant, we're happy to work with you to create a memorable and unique wine list just as we do with restaurants when they come to us to improve their current offerings. If you're a larger restaurant with a well established list, but you still want something more, we're happy to work with you to create monthly wine tastings nights which give your clientele even more reason to become regulars.
Having grown up in a family where my parents owned a small restaurant, I personally have seen the challenges inherant to the industry, I hope you'll send us an email or give us a call to see how our wine distribution program is different than the national chains you're accustomed to dealing with.
