Athenee Importers expands distribution with The Winebow Group
Effective October 1st, 2014, New York-based Athenee Importers portfolio will be distributed by The Country Vintner in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina. Established in 1974, Athenee Importers is the United State’s oldest family owned and operated importer of alcoholic beverages from Greece and Cyprus.
In 2006, Athenee Importers & The Winebow Group began its relationship in the markets where Winebow maintains its own distribution operations. These originally included New York, New Jersey, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. Shortly thereafter Massachusetts, Connecticut and Illinois were included.
We are pleased to bring our portfolio to The Country Vintner as it will better serve our customers needs along the Eastern seaboard south of Washington DC with product continuity and availability. According to Andrea Englisis, VP of Athenee, “With a Q4 launch, we have decided to begin with a group of select items within our portfolio and then look to expand the SKU selection in 2015 as demand warrants. Our goal is to provide our customer with the largest selection of quality products from our portfolio while working with a reputable distribution partner. We believe that we have found that with our new partners at The Country Vintner.”
