In April 2004, Michael Quinttus founded VINTUS based on his desire to develop a focused portfolio of exceptional, family-owned, estate-based producers of hand-crafted wines. Michael was previously a senior executive at Kobrand Corporation, where he managed their wine portfolio.

Every visitor to this website inherently knows that wine uniquely enhances the quality of life. One of wine's most thrilling dimensions is the seemingly endless range of aroma, flavor and texture profiles it offers, depending on vineyard sites, grapes used, climate and vinification. As wine consumers and professionals become more experienced with wine, they relish this diversity and savor new flavor and style experiences.

The wine industry, like other businesses, has experienced progressive consolidation in all its tiers of distribution (producer, wholesaler and retailer/restaurant). These consolidation forces threaten to standardize wine quality and diminish the scope of alternative consumer choice.

In this context, it is the goal of VINTUS to assemble a diverse, international range of "wines of place" produced by passionate personalities driven to extract the maximum expression from their estates. Our producers are intensely attuned to their environments, emphasizing biodynamic, organic or sustainable viticulture and winemaking. This theme of site expression weaves through the entire VINTUS portfolio of wines, and will remain a cornerstone of our future growth.

VINTUS is not just the embodiment of its remarkable estates. It is also a team of young, dynamic and highly motivated professionals in sales, marketing and operations who share the VINTUS vision and its standards of excellence and service. Our wines are sold through a network of distributors in all 50 states and the Caribbean who have been carefully selected as partners because of their sophisticated wine knowledge, similar philosophical foundations, relationships with the finest wine shops and restaurants in their markets, and their commitment to our wines.

We greatly appreciate your interest in our unique portfolio of wines, and thank you for taking the time to delve deeper into the fascinating backgrounds of our passionate producers and their compelling wines.
