NAPA, CA (October 13, 2020) – Saintsbury, Napa Valley’s iconic winery in Los Carneros, has formed a strategic partnership with Green Glass Global, a wine and spirits-focused brokerage firm that specializes in on- and off-premise national accounts. Working in tandem with Saintsbury’s Vice President of Sales Gary Bulger, Green Glass Global will represent the wines of Saintsbury in national accounts throughout the United States.
“We are proud to partner with Saintsbury,” said Bob McLachlan, the co-founder and national team lead for Green Glass Global. “Saintsbury has a remarkable history and has been instrumental in shaping the modern era of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir by producing appellation and site-specific wines with balanced fruit, classic structure and the potential for aging. Our team is thrilled to be working with Saintsbury to continue building brand awareness and market presence for this renowned winery.”
Founded in 2018, Green Glass Global has built a skilled 17-person sales team that provides national representation for the company’s clients. Collectively, this team has more than 250 years of wine and spirits sales experience, with well-established relationships with top multi-unit accounts, both small and large, throughout the United States.
“We are very excited to work with Green Glass Global and its team,” said Saintsbury’s Gary Bulger. “With Green Glass Global expanding our distribution with key national on- and off-premise buyers, we and our distributor partners will continue to grow our distribution in both the independent on-premise and fine wine retail sectors. As we harvest our 40th vintage, it has never been more important to be aligned with a company like Green Glass Global, which has experience in and commitment to building relationships with national and regional multi-unit accounts.”
Saintsbury was founded in 1981 by Richard Ward and David Graves. Richard’s family and David still own and operate Saintsbury as a small family winery to this day. One of the original wineries that helped establish the Carneros AVA, Saintsbury endeavors to create wines that reflect the purest expression of their vineyard source.
