Jersey City, NJ July 9, 2019 —
Mana Wine Storage announced today that it will partner with San Francisco-based online retailer Vinfolio to give east coast-based Mana Wine customers unprecedented access to Vinfolio’s online wine community and marketplace; making the purchase, sale, storage and delivery of fine, collectible wines from around the world easier than ever before. In addition to enabling the purchase and sale of exceptional wines, Vinfolio provides storage in California, cellar management software, and an online destination for wine lovers where they can benefit from a wealth of information about wine regions and producers as well as insights on investing in, collecting, and storing wine.
Much of this highly valuable educational content is offered by Adam Lapierre, MW & Chief Wine Officer at Vinfolio. Lapierre is one of fewer than 380 Masters of Wine in the world. He also serves on the Education Committee for the Institute of Masters of Wine and regularly judges at top wine competitions around the world.
Under the new relationship with Vinfolio, Mana Wine customers will be automatically subscribed to participate in Vinfolio’s exclusive spot offers where collectible, rare wines are made available for a limited amount of time, multiple times per day. Upon purchase, the wines will be automatically transferred to Mana’s wine storage facility in the New York metro area and Mana Wine will inventory, barcode, and store their clients’ new acquisitions; making them immediately available for retrieval and delivery to the client upon demand.
Additionally, Mana Wine customers will benefit by accessing Vinfolio’s auction platform and selling to Vinfolio’s extensive base of collectors. As the leading national online wine community and marketplace, Vinfolio boasts a large and growing base of discriminating wine enthusiasts and collectors that are actively adding to their cellars via Vinfolio auction purchases.
Marla Priest, Mana Wine Director, says “Our white glove approach is to treat every collection, no matter how big or small, as a personal prized possession. This new relationship with Vinfolio cements that approach; giving those clients the opportunity to manage their collections more actively, but also more easily, with access to a community of fine wine buyers and sellers.”
Don St. Pierre, Co-Owner & CEO of Vinfolio adds “Connecting Mana Wine clients with Vinfolio’s base of established buyers and sellers benefits both parties. It creates more opportunities for more people to acquire and enjoy some of the world’s finest wines.” All wine purchases and sales are conducted exclusively through Vinfolio.
