Benchmark Wine Group Announces Importation and Distribution of More Brand Offerings


Several more high-end brands will now be available in much greater quantities

Benchmark LogoNapa, Calif., April 21, 2022 – Benchmark Wine Group, the leading source of fine and rare wine for wine retailers, restaurants, and collectors worldwide, is excited to announce it is expanding into importation and distribution. This strategic model aims to fill a gap in the current three-tier system by matching consumers with small-production, rare wines that would be otherwise inaccessible to many.

“With our long-standing relationship with the best producers, restaurants and fine wine retailers, it’s a natural next step for us to use our import and distribution licenses to make these great wines available in commercial quantities,” said David Parker, CEO of Benchmark Wine Group. “A great many of these wines are perfectly aged and ideal for helping restaurants and retailers distinguish themselves in the market. We will continue to seek out the best producers who are looking for a responsive streamlined route to market for their best products.”

Some of the most notable producers include, but are not limited to:

  • Dominio de Basconcillos
    • A producer that strongly supports biodiversity in their winemaking process, this high-end Spanish producer offers a variety of aged and refined Tempranillo wines
  • Castello Terriccio

  • Gagliardo

  • Marchesi Mazzei
    • With the objective of guaranteeing the stability of the ecosystem and its biodiversity, this producer has eliminated weeding, chemical topdressing and recycles production waste (shoots, grape stalks, marc, olive pomace, and horse manure) to be utilized as completely organic fertilizer in growing it’s delicious, high-end Belguardo and Zisola lineups.
  • Veuve Doussot
    • A producer of high-quality champagne, Veuve Doussot strives to maintain its heritage with the highest quality wines that it can produce.
