Our Logo

The Family Wineries Direct logo symbolizes a ship that sat over the fireplace at my grandparents’ house where we grew up. It also demonstrates the journey our wines make from all around the globe.

Fine Wine Heritage

Our family has evolved into one of the leading import and marketing companies of fine wines in the U.S.! Between my father Steve Sr., my brother Steve Jr., and me—we bring a combined 97 years of experience in the fine wine business. We’re always on the look out to expand our portfolio and provide you with even more quality wines.

We frequently update our website—adding new wines that you can be proud of sharing with your friends and family. Share your feedback. We’d love to hear from you at: WineTeam@FamilyWineriesDirect.com

Thank you for visiting and we hope you'll return often.
