Origin Selections is a wine importing company that specializes in producers from regions with strong connection to their wine history and culture. Bringing wines from more obscure locations/varietals to NY and the US, places such as Georgia, Cyprus, Portugal, Greece and Israel.
The commonality of all these places is that they have very strong historical connections to wine and yet are in 2013 just starting to come into their own with the wines and the industry itself. The all also have a ton of native varietals that provide unique, funky, interesting wines and offer great opportunities for relatively untapped and emerging markets. They also pride themselves on their production and very specifically regional techniques (such as the qvevri in Georgia) and blends (vinho verde in Portugal, Commandaria in Cyprus).
It may take a little bit to fully come around but we are in it to build something real. We are striving to be and deal with the next generation of wine buyers, drinkers, somms, sellers, et al. Going away from the status driven, elitist model towards the genuine, pure and truth driven products from places with a long wine history and culture. Bringing wonderful things to more people; truth and timelessness.
