This Importer Highlight Article focuses on VINTUS wines, which was founded in April 2004 by Michael Quinttus. Michael was previously a senior executive at Kobrand Corporation where he spent 18 years managing their wine portfolio.

The Company is based out of Pleasantville, NY, and Michael’s goal has always been top quality, family-owned domains. The portfolio is packed with serious, reference point estates including the likes of Guigal in the Rhône Valley, Bollinger in Champagne, Ornellaia, Sandrone, and Le Macchiole in Italy, Petrus and Fleur Petrus in Bordeaux, Lucien le Moine in Burgundy, and Montelena in Napa Valley, as well as a number of others.

This is an international, world-class portfolio, and VINTUS is undeniably bringing some of the best wines in the world into the United States. I’m thrilled to be able to include their reviews and producers here.


The VINTUS Team: Alexander Michas (Executive Vice President), Michael Quinttus (President), and Michael Gitter (Vice President)

This report takes a broad look at the portfolio and includes over 40 producers and 145 wines. The majority of these wines were tasted with the VINTUS team in New York, with small follow up tastings at my office in Colorado.

Happy hunting and thanks for reading as always!
