Kindred Vines Import company visits the Denver region in Colorado

I took my first visit to the up and coming Colorado market this past week, spending two full days with our new distribution partner, Blue Sky Distributing, where we met with customers and prospects throughout the greater metropolitan Denver area.  Having been to Denver many times on personal trips, the area never fails to impress – with its bustling economy, dynamic food scene, and beautiful weather.  I am told that 5000 new residents are arriving each month to the area – it is a regular stampede!

kvic coloradoOur new partner, Blue Sky Distributing was impressive as well, setting up two full days of excellent appointments throughout the city.  Known as a beer town and with a growing spirits industry, there is huge potential here for the wine market.  The culinary scene is exceptional, there is a thirst for wine education, and Kindred Vines Import Company’s portfolio has tremendous appeal.

We started our relationship with Blue Sky with two producers from our portfolio – Brumont (Chateau Bouscasse and Chateau Montus) and the Les Vignobles de Foncalieu.  We took nine individual wines into the market and they were very warmly received.  We sold through most of the initially purchased Blue Sky inventory.

kvic coloradoBlue Sky has been busy evaluating other terrific producers from the KVIC portfolio and has plans to introduce several to the Denver market over the coming months.  Evaluated wines include Domaine de l’Espigouette, Les Jouberts, Couly-Dutheil, Frey Sohler, and Guillbaud Freres.  Recently sent in for review included the wines from Tenuta di Angoris, Les Vignerons de Mont Ventoux, Moris Farms, and Chateau Montfaucon.  Over the coming months and years, we expect to be very successful with our suppliers and partners in the Denver market.
