• In 2009, after years of toiling with wineries as bulk wine and provisionary suppliers, we were approached by a large wine group client with high profile brands. They asked if we could replicate 11 profiles that had sold far beyond their original sources could supply. ATC approached this challenge by locating vineyards in the same AVAs and then creating highly regimented cropping, harvesting, oaking and tasting schedules. We created the many elements required to produce the profiles. When completed, our client had sufficient stock of the 11 wines to fill shelves across the country. That effort was so successful that ATC established a vines-to-wines program with the winery; signing a contract that continues today.
  • ATC now offers this service of creating specific wines for the unique requirements of wineries, wine clubs, retailers, restaurants and other organizations. Our scope has extended beyond Napa and Sonoma to include all of California's wine regions. This allows us to meet most specific profiles that challenge our clients.
  • Appellation Trading Company is unique in the premium wine business. We offer the wines that our clients need, not just what we have in bottles/barrels at any given time. We create wines from our resources to help our clients achieve their goals.
