GILROY, Calif., Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sarah's Vineyard, in a continuing effort to better serve East Coast markets, has announced a partnership with wholesaler Northeast Wine, headquartered in Teaneck, New Jersey. Northeast sales teams will give their key accounts in New Jersey first time access to Sarah's Vineyard's award winning, limited releases.
Tim Slater, owner / winemaker at S.V., plans on visiting the NJ market often in support of his new distributor's efforts: "Northeast is a company like Sarah's – small, focused, committed to quality and long term customer relationships. I'm looking forward to introducing our S.V. wines to a broader audience." Initially, Northeast Wine will be presenting Sarah's Vineyard's "Santa Cruz Mountains" Chardonnay and "Central Coast" Pinot Noir releases to its retail and restaurant accounts.
The Sarah's Vineyard estate and label is a labor of love for winegrower Tim Slater. The property occupies 18 acres in the cool climate "Mt. Madonna" district of the southern Santa Cruz Mountains. Tim in his former life has been a DJ, a musician, and a successful "micro-machining" engineer with many patents to his name. At S.V., he channels both his inner "mad scientist" and his artistic side to grow and produce world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Tim also cultivates his interest in the traditional Rhone varietals, with plantings of Grenache, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Piquepoul Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Mourvedre, and Counoise. The popular Sarah's Vineyard Tasting Room is open daily on Hecker Pass Road, outside of Gilroy and only minutes from San Jose and Silicon Valley. S.V.'s online home is SarahsVineyard.com.
Northeast Wines can be reached through Steven Altschuler at (201) 836-8800.
