A PIONEERING U.S. NATIONAL WINE IMPORTER AND WINE PRODUCER FOR NEARLY TWO DECADES
We have been importing fine wines from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Baja California, Mexico as Southern Wine Group for nearly two decades. In 2012, we began extending this reputation by building a select portfolio from Oregon, Spain, Portugal, France and Italy. Combined as Elixir Wine Group, we are proud to represent wines from some of the finest family-owned producers in the world.
Our dedication to wines from these regions extends beyond representing artisan producers nationally in the United States. We also own and operate Bodega Calle winery in Luján de Cuyo, Argentina; an historic estate established in 1925 that Kirk Ermisch, his Argentine partner and Ms. Elvira Calle, a prominent Argentine business woman, restored to its full glory in 2001 as an award winning producer of varietal wines and organically-farmed, proprietary red blends.
We also produce Jubileo wines in Baja California, Mexico and Ermisch Cellars Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon which is Live Certified. Kirk travels to Argentina for part of each year to oversee harvest operations at Bodega Calle and to keep in contact with all our suppliers in South America. He also travels to Europe each year with the same purpose. In this way, we continue to bring the best wines to our wholesale partners and customers throughout the United States.
The company imports to and distributes from Napa, California and bases its operations in beautiful Bend, Oregon.
