February 24 — Washington, D.C. — Prestige-Ledroit Distributing today announced its nomination as Exclusive Mid-Atlantic Distributor for Diamond Wine Imports, Wine & Spirits Magazine 2020 Importer of the Year.
The partnership aligns the two companies for the long term by combining the strength of Prestige-Ledroit’s Mid-Atlantic relationships and Diamond Wine Imports’ dedicated portfolio of iconic Greek producers.
Established in 1992, owner Ted Diamantis believed Greece could once again become a source of some of the world’s greatest wines. With its unique terroir of mountain vineyards, sea-influenced climates, volcanic and alluvial soils, and over 200 ancient native varieties, Ted saw the opportunity that was ripe for rediscovery. OOver the past 30 years of tastings and traveling across Greece, Diamond Wine Imports has compiled a portfolio of the finest artisan and wine producers working with native varieties from the best appellations. They focus on growers and winemakers who are fully committed to quality and sustainability, from vine to bottle.
Chris Schmid, SVP of Prestige-Ledroit said, “Diamond has helped reshape American consumers’ perception of Greek wines. Assyrtiko, Xinomavro, Moschofiler – these ancient and exotic varieties will soon become household names. Diamond Wines and the many iconic producers they represent have played a major role in leading the charge, and we are thrilled to now represent these wines and help their cause in the Mid-Atlantic.
The two companies have a common goal of educating and familiarizing the American wine market with these native grape varieties, these ancient appellations and, above all, the spirit of these exceptional producers.
