A PIONEERING U.S. NATIONAL WINE IMPORTER AND WINE PRODUCER FOR TWO DECADES
ABOUT ELIXIR WINE GROUP
We have been importing fine wines from Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay for two decades. In 2011, we began building a select portfolio from Spain, Portugal, France and Italy and added our hand made wines from Oregon. In 2018, we started importing Australian wines. Elixir is proud to represent wines from some of the finest family-owned wineries in the world.
Our dedication to wines from these regions extends beyond importing and 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 and his original Argentine partners, restored to full operation in 2001, as an award winning producer of single vineyard varietal wines and organically-farmed natural wines under the Dharma brand.
Ermisch also produces several wines at the winery in Bend including Ermisch Ribbon Ridge and Dundee Hills Pinot Noirs, Walla Walla and Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay from Willamette Valley some of which are Live Certified. Ermisch 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 its New World portfolio from Napa, California, its European portfolio from New Jersey and bases its operations in Bend, Oregon. Our wines are distributed all across the entire USA. If you are having trouble finding our wines in your area, please contact us.
