Green Glass Global will spearhead Cuvaison Estate Wines’ sales program for both on- and off-premise multi-unit accounts throughout the United States.
Cuvaison Estate Wines, which includes Napa Valley’s iconic Cuvaison winery in Los Carneros, and Brandlin Vineyard on Mount Veeder, has entered into a strategic partnership with Green Glass Global. Green Glass Global is a new wine and spirits-focused brokerage firm, which specializes in on- and off-premise national accounts. Working in tandem with Cuvaison Estate Wines’ in-house sales team, led by VP of Sales Steve Richards, Green Glass Global will represent the wines of Cuvaison and Brandlin to national accounts in all fifty states.
“We are proud to partner with Cuvaison Estate Wines,” commented Bob McLachlan, the co-founder and national team lead for Green Glass Global. “Cuvaison has a remarkable history and has helped to shape the modern era of California winemaking by producing vineyard-driven wines. In addition, Brandlin Vineyard is a leader on Mount Veeder, recognized for making exceptional mountain-grown wines. Our team is thrilled to be working with Cuvaison Estate Wines to continue building brand awareness and market presence for these two iconic wineries.”
Founded earlier this year, Green Glass Global has already built a skilled 11-person sales team that provides national representation for the company’s clients. Collectively, this team has more than 250 years of wine and spirits sales experience, with well-established relationships with top multi-unit accounts, both small and large, throughout the United States.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Green Glass Global and its great team,” said Cuvaison Estate Wines VP of Sales Steve Richards. “With Green Glass Global working to expand our relationships with key national buyers, our team will be able to focus even more on providing the highest quality distribution at the regional level. With our 50th anniversary approaching, Green Glass Global’s specialized experience and a network of relationships with top multi-unit accounts will help to ensure that our next fifty years are as dynamic and successful as our first fifty.”
“With the Green Glass Global team building new relationships with national and regional multi-unit accounts, it will provide Steve and our sales team with the bandwidth to concentrate even more on independent retailers and on-premise accounts to further solidify our legacy as two of Napa Valley’s most prestigious estate wineries,” added, Dan Zepponi, the president of Cuvaison Estate Wines.
