Are you looking for a new wine supplier for your restaurant, an off licence or a private wine collection? Then let us introduce ourselves!
Originally trading as Via Piemonte - a name inspired by the famous Italian region of Piedmont - our company has grown to be known as VP Merchants. Back in 2018 we started importing Italian wines from small family-owned producers implementing manual harvesting and organic practices. It has been our passion since - bringing less known, underestimated brands to Ireland and focusing on good Italian wines.
A Very Unique Italian Wine
One of these brands is Azienda Agricola Ribote, an Italian winery in the middle of Dogliani comune famous for superb red wines, such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Dolcetto. Ribote’s outstanding Barolo and Dogliani wines have won our customers’ hearts for their complexity and quality.
Ribote’s neighbour, Cascina Carlot, has secured a strong presence in our wine portfolio with their range of traditional grape varieties from the Langhe wine region. From classic juicy Nebbiolo and Barbera wines to the hidden gem of the winery - Moscato. Cascina Carlot’s organic Moscato D’Asti is their best selling top quality wine with low alcohol volume, making it the perfect wine for light aperitifs and events.
Expanding our Italian Wine Selection
Later that year we started exploring our second favourite Italian wine region - Veneto. It is there that we have found Bosco del Merlo and their range of multi-awarded premium Prosecco wines: Millesimato Brut, Valdobbiadene Superiore and Prosecco Rosé. All Bosco del Merlo wines (and not only Prosecco, but their red and white wines) are vegan certified and sustainably produced.
Irish Wine Merchants with an International Selection
To this day, VP Merchants offers a wide portfolio of wines, spirits and cocktails to off licences and restaurants in Ireland. Our catalogue features wines from Italy, Portugal, Spain, USA, Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. We also offer additional services, such as private labeling, private import of wines and spirits, supply of fine wines, rare vintages and bottle sizes to private collectors or businesses, wine and spirits tastings and training, tailoring wine menus for restaurants and bars, and sale of large amounts of wines to individual customers.
