Artisan wine selections Inc. is an importer of small and medium size French vintners who make wines reflective of their place.
Our wineries are family owned and operated, producing authentic, hand crafted wines respected in their regions and beyond. The company was born out of a desire to share the stories of growers discovered by industry veteran, Philippe Hervy, who for more than twenty-five years oversaw the French portfolio of fine wine distributors in New York State. Our mandate is to build brand recognition for our wineries and help our distributors grow their fine wine business.
We seek to build long-term relationships with our partners, clients and suppliers.
After attending business school in France, Philippe Hervy began an internship with a boutique importer of French wines in 1992 in New York City. Later, he was offered a position to manage the French Portfolio of one of the largest wine distributors in the country. Twenty-five years later, his experience became his life. Philippe decided to put to use his long experience of working for wine distributors by creating his own wine import company. Since he was once a wine sales representative, he selects the wines carefully, with an eye toward value and a belief that wine truly does all the talking.
