After working many years in the retail and distribution sides of the business in New York, London, and San Francisco, Oliver McCrum began importing and distributing wines on his own in 1994. The portfolio had been Italian focused for many years but in 2007, he decided to focus exclusively on the importation of Italian wines. Since then the portfolio has expanded from a predominantly Northern Italian selection to include an equally powerful and fast-growing Southern Italian selection. Oliver and his team look for wines with clarity, focus, and precision made from indigenous Italian grape varieties using traditional winemaking techniques and no obvious use of oak.
