Florida-based Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has formed a deeper partnership with Prestige Wine Imports, importer of a diverse portfolio of high quality Italian wines. 

Working with Prestige Wine Imports, Southern Glazer’s is expanding its distribution relationship to seven additional markets including Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Washington D.C.

“We are thrilled to start the new year with a strengthened national reach for Prestige Wine Imports,” said Rusty Pape, EVP of Prestige Wine Imports. “Through this expansion with Southern Glazer’s, we have an exciting opportunity to streamline our business with a partner that shares our vision and values.”

Prestige Wine Imports already has a well-established relationship with Southern Glazer’s, which has represented its portfolio in key markets for many years. Expanding this existing footprint will allow the wine company to tap into Southern Glazer’s expertise and infrastructure to accelerate brand building capabilities. The strengthened distribution also will give Southern Glazer’s access to Prestige Wine Imports’ portfolio of wines.

“This market expansion is an exciting next step in our long-term partnership with Prestige Wine Imports,” said Mark Chaplin, SVP of sales and marketing at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. “We have built a great foundation with the team and are looking forward to working even more closely to drive lasting results.” 

Prestige Wine Imports will benefit from Southern Glazer’s national scale, route-to-market capabilities and Proof e-Commerce platform to drive efficiencies and sustain long-term growth for its business.

“This is a very strategic and impactful expansion for Prestige Wine Imports,” said Steve Menter, SVP and national sales manager at Prestige Wine Imports. “Our strengthened relationship with Southern Glazer’s puts us in an even greater position to expand upon the success of our diverse portfolio.” 

Prestige Wine Imports is a New York-based subsidiary of Gruppo Mezzacorona and is the exclusive importer of a diverse portfolio which runs the gamut of high-quality Italian wines from the Italian Alps to Sicily.

Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits is a distributor of beverage alcohol and a multi-generational, family-owned company. It has operations in 44 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Canada. To learn more, visit southernglazers.com.
