Siema Wines is a distributor and importer of boutique wines from all over the world. We represent small estates, all family owned and managed. The majority of estates we represent produces less than 10,000 cases a year and many are under 5,000 cases a year. Our portfolio contains over 700 wines and a few beers and spirits from all over the world. We import wine representing the entire price spectrum, with an emphasis on quality and and value. Our wineries are proud of their country, region and land and it shows in their wines. They’ve been practicing sustainable agriculture long before it became chic. They cultivate their vineyards with a passion and dedication impossible to find with the giant conglomerates. The wines are naturally fermented, and cellared and aged without additives of any kind.
It is not easy to put a bottle of wine from small family estates in the hands of consumers. Small family estates don’t come with corporate budgets for advertising campaigns and slick magazine ads. Instead, we at Siema Wines rely on the clients and consumers who seek out these wines. Our clients recognize the importance of terroir, and the dedication of small wineries practicing sustainable agriculture. Our consumers are adventurous and curious, and they appreciate the opportunity to taste a varietal they’ve never heard of, and a flavor profile they’ve never dreamt of.
Our sales team is made up of experts from across the industry. We have sommeliers, former retailers, former restaurant managers, people skilled in specific areas of the wine world. We have four top wine experts who shape our portfolio, with all four specializing in a particular part of the world. Most importantly, our sales team travels all over the world to visit the wineries in our book. They have first hand experience with how the wine is made, where it is made, and who it was made by. There is no better way to communicate the quality of a wine than to witness how it is created.
