Mediterranean Vintners Alliance Appoints Glenn Henry as National Sales Director


Date: 02/16/11

Glenn Henry, 53, longtime wine sales maven of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, has been appointed National Sales Director for Mediterranean Vintners Alliance (MVA). Henry brings over 30 years’ experience to the company. MVA is a group of four innovative cooperatives in France producing terroir-driven and wallet-friendly wines, united to develop a stronger presence on the US market.

“MVA is focused on producing and exporting wines made with passion and style,” explains Henry. “The wines are very approachable and offer excellent values for restaurants and retailers. Even at the premium level, Châteauneuf-du-Pape or Gigondas for example, our wines are perfect for retailers seeking good value wines for everyday drinking, or for restaurants looking to pour an iconic wine by the glass.”

“Glenn Henry brings his vast experience and knowledge of the US market to the wines of MVA,” observes Phillippe Tolleret, Chief Winemaker at Marrenon. “We are thrilled to have him as the US ambassador for our wines.”

After receiving his formal wine education at the Sommelier Society, Henry worked at Wines and Spirits International and Jaydor Corporation. He was then recruited by Remy America as a district manager in five states, representing Remy’s revered Champagne and Cognac brands. Henry also held positions at Kendall Jackson and Sutter Home, managing the wineries’ portfolios in the Tri-state area, and most recently at Cannon Wines Limited, Christiana Spirits and Kindred Spirits.
