Boca Raton, Florida April 1, 2013 – GRAPE to GRAIN (G-T-G) launched over a year and a half ago has enjoyed tremendous growth. The portfolio is a collection of family owned and independent producers; ranging from wineries that employ sustainable farming practices to distilleries using certified organic grain. The wine regions represented span the globe from Washington and California to Italy, Spain, and Argentina and beyond. Distillery partners are equally as diverse and include producers of small batch and finely crafted vodka, gin, and whiskies. And as of April 1, 2013, Tanteo Tequila will now be available for purchase at 20 Total Wine & More locations in Florida through an exciting partnership with G-T-G.
For Dominick Peri, Founder, G-T-G, the relationship with Total, signifies many firsts: the first time Tanteo is sold in Florida, the first time Tanteo is available at a chain in Florida and the first time Tanteo is being sold at Total Wine & More in Florida. Translation: Peri has secured a relationship on behalf of the product with the largest retailer in the region. Total is considered America’s Wine Superstore: The country’s largest independent retailer of fine wine with $1.5BB in sales estimated this year, in over 15 different states nationwide in 90 stores with more to come.

G-T-G hired Social Spirits, a Digital Media company with deep roots in the wine & spirits industry to launch the announcement of this partnership digitally. Kim Jacobs, President, Social Spirits adds, “G-T-G is on the cutting edge of new marketing and sales concepts. And Social Spirits impressed G-T-G with it’s innovative work and reach into the retailer community to facilitate foot traffic both in-store and on-line.”

Peri’s proclivity for sophisticated selling techniques has earned him a sterling reputation selling at a national level for both off-premise as well as on- premise accounts. Comments David Alphonse VP of Beverage Back Bay Restaurant Group, former VP of Beverage Legal Seafoods. “I have done National Account business with Dominick for many years with both my current company and my prior one and he has always assisted us with the right products and brands, as well as coordinating training programs for the product launch and maintaining its sales growth. G-T-G is beneficial for single market restaurant groups, regional restaurant groups as well as the larger chains to introduce great wines and spirits.”
