Dee Vine

Fine & rare German wines.

Dade Thieriot founded Dee Vine Wine in 1996, as a retail outlet on Pier 19, and a catalogue of German wine and a few French rarities. Over the years, Dade’s relationships grew in Germany, focused in the Mosel; expanded and developed the portfolio into a stunning and extremely curated collection of Riesling producers. The best of the best, and getting better every year, and with every generation.

DNS Wines

Experts in Burgundy, France in general, Greece, and Italy.

We have all had that moment while tasting a bunch of wine. You go and go and go, and then you stop. Because you just refuse to budge. The wine in your mouth is literally physically impossible to spit out. It’s just too good! That is DNS (Do Not Spit). Experts in Burgundy, France in general, Greece, and Italy. The primary partners, Todd Mathis and Dionysi Grevenitis have the same love of wines from site specific Domaines, in whichever county they happen to be drinking.

Hand Picked

Importer of artisanal wines from independent growers and family-owned wineries in Europe. Founded in 1985.

Co-owners Sunil Khanna and Chris Desor work with an amazing mixture of growers, all of which practice sustainable agriculture, with minimal intervention in the cellar. The portfolio includes traditional winemakers, unorthodox individuals, and a host of uncommonly good values that always over-deliver. From Château Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape, to Commanderie de la Bargemone in Provence, the line up is dynamic from top to bottom.

Mary Taylor

Sourced from some of Europe’s most classic regions.

Mary Taylor is a rule breaker. She does not “dumb down” or Americanize her European selections, she leans in. Her wines are priced like the bottom shelf, but are authentic and labeled like the top shelf.

Valkyrie Selections

Brings wines from benchmark and emerging regions across the world to your table.

Valkyrie Selections is our original import partner! Way back in 2010, we were domestic only, with just a handful of brands. I had some boyfriend named Joe Corsini, who happened to work at The Spanish Table in Northern California. He tasted the “new stuff” being brought in by his friend’s Steve Graf, Baron Ziegler and Emily Peterson, and bought a bunch for the store, and encouraged us to have a conversation about representing the burgeuoning portfolio. Fast forward to today, and the their reach has expanded from Spain and France, to Australia and England. They have a strong domestic arm, which started with Banshee Wines, and is now Valravn, Averæn, Requeim, etc. Their team is innovative, dynamic, and always, always, always, ready to party!
