Wine & Spirits’ Importer of the Year 2022!

Oct 14, 2022

We’ve been named Importer of the Year by Wine & Spirits Magazine, the third time we’ve been honored by this award-winning magazine. Congratulations to the excellent importers included on this short list; and thank you to all our winemakers, who trust in us to bring their wines to the best restaurants & wine bars and savviest consumers in the United States.

Wine & Spirits Magazine tastes some 10,000+ wines per year blind, and from this collection, recommends top wines with corresponding scores. Our partners’ solid performance in these tastings is what allows us to be named an Importer of the Year. We’re equally thrilled that Wine & Spirits named four of our growers — Frederic Magnien (Burgundy), Rocca di Montegrossi (Chianti Classico), Domaine Petit & Bajan (Champagne), Fratelli Alessandria (Barolo) — to its Top 100 Winery list for 2022.

The past few years have underscored how important strong, long-term relationships are in this business. Thank you to our more than 100 growers in France and Italy, our distributor and sales partners across the country, and importantly, the North Berkeley Imports home team — for your dedication, your ceaseless hard work, and your passion to champion the finest wines the world over.
