About Us

Vine Importers was founded in 2012 by Claude Widmer from Switzerland and his American partners Rocco and Christine Morelli. The idea started a few years prior to that and it is a long and interesting story that Claude will be happy to share with you personally.

We wanted to bring unique wines to the American market and decided to start with Swiss Wines, because there were hardly any available here in the US and since Claude came from Switzerland and was well connected there it seemed natural to start with these exceptional products. 


So we brought in our first container of wine and non-alcoholic sparkling wines from Switzerland and started to introduce them to people here in Florida and also California. It was a great experience, since most people had never tasted Swiss wines and they were surprised that Switzerland would Produce such Great Wines.

It has been our privilege to get connected to several Artisan Producers and Importers who let us represent them in Florida and we have Extended our Portfolio to South America, Austria and Spain. We are continuously adding products from mainly family owned producers and are looking forward to expand.
