The two companies will join together to continue innovating upstream by offering the most sought after labels from the most venerated names all over Napa Valley and beyond
NAPA, Calif – February 4, 2021 – Wine Access, the premier destination for discovering expert-curated wines, today announced that it has acquired Napa Valley’s prestigious wine merchant, 750 Wines. The two companies will join together to continue a shared mission and commitment to offering high-end, limited production boutique wines.
750 Wines founders David and Monica Stevens have been pioneers of the Napa Valley wine industry for decades, establishing deep relationships and trust among customers through elevated retail and tasting experiences. Together, they have launched some of the most successful and sought-after wines from Napa Valley through their deep relationships with top Vintners and Winemakers. Wine critic Robert Parker Jr. once stated, “I was at the opening of a wine shop in St. Helena, 750 Wines, a new project by David Stevens and his wife Monica, aka, the most connected person I know in Napa.”
The relationship between the two organizations began when Vanessa Conlin MW, Head of Wine at Wine Access joined the board of Monica and David’s beloved, Jameson Humane, a 501(c)(3) registered nonproﬁt organization improving animal welfare through global collaboration and education for the benefit of all life. Their shared love of wine and animals established a great trust and admiration, which will continue as the organizations join together.
“David and Monica’s commitment to curating first class selections and creating a one-of-a-kind tasting experience that’s revered by the industry’s most sophisticated palates is something we’re excited to bring on under the Wine Access umbrella,” said Joe Fisch, CEO of Wine Access. “We’re honored to continue 750 Wines’ legacy which brings the highest-quality small production wines straight to the door of wine enthusiasts around the country”
“It has been an honor and a privilege to grow 750 Wines alongside David, sharing the world of small production wines made by our friends and colleagues in Napa Valley,” said Monica Stevens, Co-Owner of 750 Wines. “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with the team at Wine Access. As one of the largest and most respected online wine providers, we knew this would be the right opportunity to unlock access to a wider range of cult and iconic wines from around the world for our members.”
Wine Access will now host 750 Wine’s inventory and continue to innovate on upstream offerings to customers around the country.
