Boutique Cellar Selections is a wine importing company for select top tier quality product from small boutique wineries located primarily in Piedmont and Tuscany and to a lesser degree in Veneto. A second entity is charged with sales and distribution with initial focus within Connecticut.
Our objective is to provide a portfolio of top quality wines directed toward an underserved upscale demographic with discretionary wine budgets for collecting and consuming. The product line will be sold through selected prestige retailers located in affluent communities who are currently servicing this target audience.
The portfolio will consist of classic wines from Piedmont and Tuscany. Wine varieties will comprise Barolo, Barbera, Gattinara, Brunellos and Rossos di Montalcino and Super Tuscan blends along with select sparkling wines and still white wines. Additional wines may be accessed from “hot areas” (Maremma, Franciacorta, Friuli and the Veneto). In most cases, the wines have been reviewed by their respective governments and classified IGT, DOC and DOCG (Italy). These geographical determination labels add credibility and value to the wines. The wines are designed to retail between $20 and $130.
As sales will concentrate on stores in selected communities, and, additional time is available to assist the retailer in building a new customer base and employing marketing tactics to improve revenues and profitability.
The portfolio from small boutique wineries will not enjoy immediate brand recognition. However, the quality of the wines will compare favorably and in most cases exceed the quality of branded labels costing 15% to 30% more.
We now offer a variety of “value” wines that retail in the $14 to $20. range. Again these are from small italian wineries, but not necessarily italian varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc) as well as some classic wines from the Abruzzo region.
Please browse our wines and be sure to contact us with any questions.
