About Us

“Since 1913, Opici Wines has represented the best the marketplace has to offer. Our award-winning portfolio includes distinctive wines and spirits that feature exceptional craftsmanship, incredible value, and classic international appeal. ”–

– Don Opici, Managing Director

Our philosophy is simple: Offer a stellar selection of premium wines and spirits, produced with the highest level of craftsmanship and value to elevate every experience, with every glass.

An importer and producer of fine wines and artisanal spirits, Opici Wines has been family owned and operated since its inception. Founded in 1913 and re-established upon the repeal of Prohibition in 1934, Opici became a household name under the leadership of the late Hubert Opici, an “American Wine Legend.” Today, the company is managed by Don Opici, fourth generation, and boasts a portfolio of more than 50 brands from around the world.

With long-standing, market-leading Italian brands like Cesari, Carpineto, Luiano, and Viberti as the foundation, Opici Wines has expanded its vision over the past decade to include a more global portfolio. Among its brands are renowned names like Ruca Malen (Argentina), El Coto (Spain), Domain Roux (France), and Totara (New Zealand). The company has also launched several proprietary brands, including LaLuca (Italy) and Julia James (California)—which are named for the family’s fifth generation—as well as Auspicion (California).

The company also offers a range of premium spirits through its division Market Street Spirits, including Meletti Italian Liqueurs, Brindley Gold Shipwreck Rum, The Temple Bar Whiskey, Tullibradine Scotch Whisky, and Negroni Cocktail.
While it has expanded its portfolio and embraced the innovative styles of its brands, Opici Wines has also remained true to its roots with its iconic Opici label. Under this label, Opici offers such classic selections as Homemade Barberone, Burgundy, and Chianti.

Opici Wines was named “Importer of the Year” in 2014 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in its annual Wine Star Awards.
