HAMDEN, CT, August 20, 2014 —
Votto Vines Importing has been ranked #464 on the Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America for 2014 and #14 in the food and beverage category. The first ever wine importing and distribution company to make the list, Votto Vines’ rapid ascent has been fueled by its strong industry partnerships; unique approach to wine sourcing and marketing; and its esteemed portfolio of boutique wine producers and proprietary brands.
From delivering 1,000 cases locally in Connecticut out of the back of co-founder Nick Votto’s Subaru wagon at the height of the economic downturn in 2009, Votto Vines has quickly scaled to become a multi-state importer and marketer of fine wines. The Votto Vines Inc. 500 profile reveals three-year revenue growth of 1,023% based on sales of $384,000 in 2010 and $4.3M in 2013. “Among our many short-term goals is to continue our aggressive growth trajectory and achieve $10M in sales by 2015,” says Votto Vines CFO Stephen Votto.
