Effective May 1, 2024, Maze Row Wine Merchant has become the exclusive distributor of Cantina Girlan wines in the US. Based in Healdsburg, California, the Californian company is one of the most important importers of fine wines in the world.

“For Cantina Girlan this collaboration represents another fundamental stage in its long history, which has recently reached the milestone of its first 100 years of activity,” explains Oscar Lorandi, president of Cantina Girlan.

“Over the last 15 years we have worked with great determination to improve and consolidate our positioning with a precise commercial strategy in the historic markets for Italian wine. This agreement is a confirmation of the commitment carried out so far and we are proud of this further achievement which will allow us to better appreciate our wines strongly linked to the territory in the United States”.

Cantina Girlan strengthens its presence in the US with the new partnership which will see Maze Row Wine Merchant as the new exclusive importer of the historic South Tyrolean winery.

“We are thrilled to add Girlan to our portfolio,” says Joseph C. Gallo, founder of Maze Row Wine Merchant. “Girlan just celebrated its 100th anniversary. We are honored to represent them in the United States. Their wines truly reflect the character and traditions of high-altitude viticulture in South Tyrol. We welcome Girlan to the Maze Row community.”

Maze Row Wine Merchant will exclusively import the Trattmann Pinot Noir Riserva from the Solisti line, the Patricia Pinot Noir, the Marna Chardonnay and the Indra Sauvignon from the Vigneti line and, finally, the Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay from the Classici line.

A collaboration which, thanks to Maze Row Merchant’s know-how in the field of fine wines and the distribution network, will allow Cantina Girlan to improve its presence, visibility and positioning in the United States with some of the most representative labels of its production project.

“We are convinced that Maze Row”, concludes Oscar Lorandi, “is the ideal partner to gradually strengthen our position in the dynamic US market, which has always been among the most receptive for fine wines. We are also enthusiastic about all the synergies that can arise from such a prestigious and important collaboration.”
