Our Story

Established in 1996 by founding partners, Michael Stolese and Joerg Klauck, The Vermont Wine Merchants Company is Vermont’s premier wine-exclusive wholesale distributor.

The Vermont Wine Merchants Company currently carries over 2,000 wines from over 300 producers, both domestic and internationally. Vermont Wine Merchants’ portfolio represents and recognizes the finest brands the industry has to offer. All of our wines are individually selected by the owners to ensure our customers the highest quality product there is to offer in an ever-developing market. Wine selections are made by identifying the significant trends in the wine marketplace; such as emerging regions, increasingly popular varietals and styles, and pace-setting wineries.

This once “small” company has grown to a staff of over twentyfive individuals, including a strong sales staff. Currently we have nine sales representatives that cover territories all over the state of Vermont, from the Northeast Kingdom to the Brattleboro/Bennington area and everywhere in between.
