Artisan’s Cellar was born from a trip to Italy’s wine country with my wife and children in 2008. There is no better way to experience Italy than through the diversity of its culture and the unique charm each region has to offer. The wines, culture and gracious people we met throughout truly captured my heart. I returned home only to research and taste wines constantly, almost obsessively.

My family and I formed friendships with our guide in Italy, Amy Wadman, and many others including her friend Summer Wolff. The two traveled to West Chester, Pennsylvania and were our guests the following year. We shared many late nights talking about tours and wine, food, family, and our experiences while enjoying some wines from their friend Fabrizio Iuli, which helped fuel our creativity. Our ideas and conversations flowed in a way similar to the 2004 Barabba we consumed; easy-going, fresh, complex, and persistent as they evolved for hours after opening. Within the year, Artisan’s Cellar was born, Summer founded Indie Wineries in New York and Piemonte, and Amy began producing olive oils at Costa Digiano in Le Marche. Our connection forged in Italy grew into lifetime friendships and enduring business relationships. I am proud to say that Artisan’s Cellar represents both Indie Wineries and Costa Digiano to this day.

Now in our sixth year, Artisan’s Cellar has cultivated a portfolio distributing wines selected by eight importers, our own hand-picked direct imports, and wine in other formats. Our Italian selections, driven by tradition and the relationship between food and wine, have grown to represent nearly all of the country’s 20 regions. We’ve stepped outside of Italy and into France to further our collection from winemakers farming with respect to soil life and the environment, producing wines without additives or unnecessary manipulation that focus on terroir and digestibility. As we grow, we are continuing down this path into other regions including Spain, Slovenia, Croatia, and the United States. We built a new building, expanded our staff, and launched the largest keg filling operation in the eastern United States in 2014. We’re grateful for the interest and enthusiasm you have for the wines in our portfolio. We pledge our continuous effort toward being your reliable source to hear and learn about, taste, and enjoy both old favorites and many more new wine offerings to come.
