Whenever a brand is being marketed, it is paramount to a supplier that he is fully comfortable with his Distributor's understanding of what needs to be accomplished.

The relationship between Supplier and the Distributor can only grow when there's a clear strategic direction that both companies are striving for.

"Our battle each and every day is proving we can make a difference"

Our Mission is:


"To provide our Customers, Suppliers and Employees with quality Products and Services, and EXCEED their expectations through Profitability, Communication, Selling and Execution."

To provide customers with niche/custom quality beverage alcohol products and services while joining forces with suppliers and manufacturers in delivering quality products in all price categories. Industry knowledge, quality customer service and overall value at a profit and becoming one of the best specialty Distribution companies in the country.

What will emerge is a Specialty Distribution business which will be breaking new ground on how business is conducted in the State of California.

A prerequisite for success, for any Distributor who is conducting business in California has to emanate from his or her ability to see and influence key on and off premise accounts. We feel that is our greatest strength.

Our sense of purpose is clear -to represent and build your portfolio and to move both of our companies towards a profitable future.
California is the number one beverage alcohol market in the United States of America. The role of the current distributors has changed from brand builders to order takers. The consolidation of the wholesale tier continues to give suppliers fewer and fewer choices on distribution, while the two major California distributors continue to add brands to their portfolios. A small professional specialty organization selling a limited portfolio of supplier and company owned brands, promoting personal contact, product knowledge and personal service will surely make a significant contribution. Pacific Edge Wine & Spirits' strategic objective is to move from a traditional wholesale distribution mode to a pro-active brand driven role. Our key account call frequency is designed to create a special relationship with our key accounts and wholesalers.
  • Complete key account and chain coverage
  • Experienced sales and marketing executives
  • Over 25 years experience in California and the Western United States
  • Strategic programming with built-in benchmarks for periodic evaluations
  • We will not overload our portfolio (Brand Building is the Key)
  • We wish to only represent a limited number of suppliers, thereby enabling us to specialize for each supplier
  • Importation, Inventory, Warehousing and Distribution capabilities
  • Brand investment unparalleled by any specialty distributor in the United States
