Today, the high demand for consistent quality sweet wines is answered continuously by St. James Winery as apparent in their latest market expansion into the state of Georgia. The growth of St. James Winery within the past year has added three new states to their distribution list, Arkansas, Indiana, and now Georgia. A re-launch of their product line also occurred this summer in the state of Illinois, in particular, the Chicago market. With a total of nine states now offering St. James Winery vintages, demand continues to grow as evidenced by the phone calls received by prospective distributors in still more states to come. Savannah Distributing Company, Inc. located in Savannah, GA, with a branch operation also in Atlanta, GA. has become the latest distributor to carry a portfolio of St. James Winery products. Henry Monsees, president of Savannah Distributing stated “We are pleased to represent St. James Winery and its line up of high quality products. The wines are very well made, the packaging tremendous, and these “farm” wines appeal to an important consumer segment in Georgia”. Entering the marketplace with six wines, Velvet Red, Velvet White, Pink Catawba, Country Red, Peach and Blackberry wine, retailers have been overwhelmed with the quality and taste difference in comparison to some of the other local state and regional wineries. Dean Chalem, National Sales Director for St. James Winery stated “Savannah Distributing runs a quality and proficient operation which we are happy to be associated with. Represented by the best account executives in the area, we look forward to working closely with them in bringing our wines to the people of Georgia.” With over 2,000+ awards to date, St. James Winery was named by Wine Business Monthly Magazine, February 2006, as the Number 4 Hottest Small Brand of 2005.
