Adam Sager, Co-President and son of founder Yale Sager adds, “It’s a true honor to us and well-deserved recognition for our talented supplier partners. We thank Wine & Spirits Magazine for naming us a 2019 Top Importer of the Year.”

Winesellers has seen a tremendous increase in demand for quality, organic wines as well as estate-grown wines that are attainable for the everyday drinker. “We’ve been able to grow immensely in recent years while staying true to the values upon which our father began, working with family-owned-and operated-wineries to develop a dynamic and ever-growing portfolio.”

In addition, Winesellers has developed its domestic portfolio with Santa Barbara Winery, Lafond Winery and Vineyards and Napa-based Vinum Cellars.

The importer is also reputed for creating, sourcing and developing its own highly regarded brands such as Tortoise Creek from California’s Lodi and Central Coast regions; Sea Pearl from Marlborough, New Zealand; Mont Gravet from Pays d’Oc, France and Tiamo, organic wines crafted from a collection of small organic certified growers throughout Italy. “I am proud to continue building Winesellers with my brother and father,” says Co-President Jordan Sager. “We cherish our longstanding partnerships with incredible winemakers from all over the globe, and firmly believe it’s the basis for developing sustained growth and success.”

Winesellers, Ltd. will be featured alongside the winners in the Wine & Spirits Magazine 33rd Annual Buying Guide available now nationally.
