About Us

Spanish Wine Exclusives is an international fine wine group that produces, owns and exports Spanish wines all over the world. We have been championing diverse and authentic Spanish terroirs since 2010. Our mission began finding passionate winemakers who were creating exciting, low production Boutique Wines, and has expanded to include finding prized Rare Old Vintage Wines in excellent condition, and producing Value Wines that offer an edge in quality at everyday prices.

All our efforts revolve around four guiding principles:

  1. SIMPLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE direct Spanish wine sourcing, shipping & invoicing, marketing and customer service, optimizing our customers’ operations and building long lasting “win-win” relationships. Offering over 60 wines from all over Spain on mixed pallets.
  2. AUTHENTIC TERROIRS AND WINES made from HIGH QUALITY LOCAL GRAPES, whether the core appeal of each is its value for the price, the passion of its creators or its rarity.
  3. DIVERSITY: 12+ different DO’s throughout Spain—from value to boutique to rare collector wines; spanning from innovative to traditional and from new and unknown to classic.
  4. DEVOTION TO SPANISH WINE CULTURE: To know and understand the passion and excitement of the Spanish wine scene so our customers will too.

The Company

SWE is a young but deeply experienced, dynamic and fast-growing company. We offer unparalleled commitment to quality in the areas that matter the most: a compelling, high quality portfolio, exceptional people and outstanding service.

We are comprised of two sides. Grupo Spanish Wine Exclusives – Bodegas y Viñedos is our Spain-based exporting, producing, and brand ownership arm. And Spanish Wine Exclusives is our marketing arm, which operates in Asia, Europe and the United States, and also imports into the USA.

We have offices in Tokyo, La Rioja and New York to promote & support our brands. Our efficient stock tracking system enables us to deliver exactly the wines you need, when you need them. We have strong relations with key international transport and logistics companies to ensure that all the details are taken care of from winery to your warehouse door.
