July 18, 2016

A to Z Wineworks, Oregon’s best-selling wine brand, has appointed the Trellis Wine Group to promote its A to Z and REX HILL wines in National On-Premise accounts, effective July 12th.

Trellis’ dedication to premium, independent wineries matches well with A to Z’s commitment to offer the highest quality wines for the greatest sustainable value. A to Z wines, along with those from REX HILL, one of the Willamette Valley’s legacy brands, will fill an important strategic role in the Trellis portfolio.

Ron Mertz, A to Z Wineworks’ National Sales President remarked, “Trellis Wine Group has a proven track record of success over the past decade. We anticipate a long and fruitful relationship with them as our primary sales agent for many of the best restaurants and hotels in the country.”

“As Oregon wines command more consumer attention and space on restaurant wine lists,” said Mark Crisler, Trellis’ founder, “we are enthusiastic to be joining forces with Oregon’s top performer.”

Deb Hatcher, A to Z Founder comments, “Our certified B Corp business continues to grow with the goal to be the best, not necessarily the biggest. We are pleased to align with a highly-capable National On-Premise account sales partner.”
