Frederick Wildman & Sons Importers

Following the repeal of Prohibition, Frederick S. Wildman, a Connecticut-born wine connoisseur, bought the century old Bellows and Co., a wine importer and fine-food emporium. That same year Wildman traveled to Europe’s finest vineyards to pursue suppliers and to grow his importing business. Within a short time, Wildman signed on some of France’s finest wine producers, many still in Frederick Wildman’s portfolio today.

With Wildman in charge, the company grew and prospered. Wildman himself wrote the newsletters and wine notes, always reflecting his personal commitment to the highest quality products for his discriminating clientele. The Colonel, as he was called, continued to travel to Europe to develop contacts and establish partnerships. When National Distillers decided to leave the premium wine business in 1952, the Colonel was able to create his own company, Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd. Champagne Pol Roger, Domaine Armand Rousseau and Château Fuissé were mainstays of the portfolio then and remained when Colonel Wildman retired in 1971, and his company became a subsidiary of Hiram Walker. With Hiram Walker, Frederick Wildman and Sons continued to grow, and the Rhône wines of Paul Jaboulet Aîné, and several Bordeaux properties were soon added to the rich and prestigious portfolio.

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Kermit Lynch was born and raised in California. From his youth he remembers that his father and uncle worked for a winery, but he has no memory of anyone in his family drinking wine.

The Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant family was rich in preachers, too, but at communion they served Welch's grape juice, even though, as Kermit points out, Jesus turned water into wine, not grape juice.

Folio Fine Wine Partners

When they started Folio Fine Wine Partners in 2004, working on folding tables and chairs in their guest house in Napa, they had a vision - that the best wines in the world would come from producers that are family owned and operated. A steadfast belief that in every wine they represented would be the unique essence of the land each family stewards. When the family name is on the bottle, there is passion, heritage, history, provenance, integrity and longevity.

Much like a guild, they wanted to provide their distributors and key trade partners the best of what the world's premiere wine regions had to offer without compromising on the marketing, sales support, PR and compliance that many small producers could not deliver. An approach that would make them valued partners to their trade customers and ultimately a resource for discerning US wine consumers. They are grateful to the Frescobaldi family who were the first family who took the leap of faith with them. Today they are honored to represent winemaking families from Italy, Spain, France, Argentina, and Austria, their business is growing in double digits and they are only just getting started.

In 1988 he founded a wine brokerage company for premium and ultra-premium wines, covering the Midwest region. Ten years later, Steve formed a prestigious import and marketing company, which he eventually sold in 2002 when he partnered with Dennis to form Quintessential.
