Wine Trends Inc. is an Ohio Wine Distributor; we are passionate about emerging brands, artisan and luxury wines. Our objective is to inspire our employees to become more successful in their careers, our retail and restaurant permit holders more profitable in their businesses, and our winery partners informed.
Founded in 1984 by Sandy Earl, Wine Trends distributes emerging brands, artisan and luxury wines to restaurant and retail permit holders throughout the state of Ohio. Wine Trends focuses on personal relationships with wineries that share its passion for creating the “unexpected” in the wine industry. Because of these authentic winery relationships, Wine Trends attracts associates and customers who implicitly understand the portfolio’s uniqueness.
In 2008, Wine Trends merged with Heidelberg Distributing’s fine wine sales division, The Lion Group, resulting in a portfolio that is as rich and diverse as any in the country. This merger allowed Wine Trends to provide the level of industry expertise you would expect from a boutique sales and marketing company, but with the sizable distribution network of one of the country’s largest beer and wine distributors. A perfect combination for the ever-growing wine industry.
Wine Trends is so much more than a wine distributor and sales organization, though. It’s a collection of knowledgeable wine lovers dedicated to helping wineries brand their products throughout Ohio while also educating their customers and ultimately their customers’ customers, the consumer, about emerging brands, artisan, and luxury wines. A truly unique approach in the industry.
