Travessia Winery Partners with M.S. Walker Inc. for Distribution in Massachusetts
Travessia, a boutique winery in New Bedford, Massachusetts, has announced a partnership with fine wine wholesaler M.S. Walker Inc. The Massachusetts-based company is now distributing Travessia’s latest wine releases, including Travessia’s Riesling, Vidal Blanc and Pinot Noir Rosé, all from the 2013 vintage.
“Earlier this year, M.S. Walker Inc. came into the winery and tasted all of our wines, and you could sense the excitement. Some of the wines were still unfinished, aging in barrels and tanks. I was impressed by their approach. They were very interested in finding a local winery they could get behind, and they wanted a high quality wine", says Marco Montez, owner and winemaker of Travessia, who is excited about the partnership and looking forward to seeing his wines reach a wider audience.
Travessia released its first wines in 2008 and currently makes just over 1,000 cases of wine per year. Grapes are mostly sourced from local vineyards and then brought to the winery in downtown New Bedford where Marco Montez handles all winemaking activities from fermentation to bottling.
“We have been researching the greater Northeast from Long Island to the Great Lakes, and Travessia’s wines are a refreshing discovery,” says Chip Coen, Vice-President of On Premise at M.S. Walker Inc. “M.S. Walker Inc. is thrilled to be involved with Travessia Winery!”
