About Us

Palmateer Wine Group uses its deep experience and extensive network with distributors and trade accounts to increase a winery’s presence throughout the U.S. market. With first-hand experience in all three tiers of the U.S. distribution system, we know there is still hard work to be done after a sale is made.

Palmateer Wine Group’s sales team is a small group of highly motivated, senior-level sales managers with an average 25 years of selling wine and building brands in the U.S. Our team maintains successful, collaborative relationships with buyers, working with them in the market, keeping them focused on our brands and strengthening those partnerships.

Palmateer Wine Group understands that distributors don’t have the time or resources to focus on all the wines they have to sell. It’s our job create momentum for the distributor by educating them, working with them in the market and selling with and without them. Once a distributor sees our success, we find they are more likely to give our wines the attention that continues the sales momentum.

Palmateer Wine Group’s team is collaborative and transparent with our clients. We hold regular meetings with each of them to discuss market activity and to make sure we are all on track.

Palmateer Wine Group also is an expert in managing the complexities of importation and compliance.
