Private Wine Imports began as ShipItHomeUSA in 2010 as Barry Gilbert followed his passion for wine, food and international marketing. After 30 years in consumer products, he decided to apply his professional experience in marketing and merchandising to assist international wineries sell their products to American tourists. ShipItHomeUSA was sold in 2021 and today, the business is exclusively dedicated to importing for select clients.
Of course our wine producers would like as much distribution in the US market as possible, but selling wine in once doesn’t make anyone rich. As we’re in the consumer products business our goal is to get your product consumed, time and time again, and that requires finding the right match for your products. It’s harder but takes discipline, understanding your products and our customers and THEIR customers. We’re in this for the long term.
