In 1991 Betty Cohen founded Grapevine Distributors. Her mission was to “bring family made wines from around the world to the families of the Carolinas.” Today Grapevine Distributors continues to accomplish its mission but has also accomplished much more. Grapevine Distributors, with its first in the state air conditioned box truck and fully air conditioned warehouse, set the standards by which all distributors in the Carolinas operate today. Grapevine was the first true state-wide distributor in North Carolina and followed up that feat by becoming the first distributor covering both North and South Carolina. Grapevine Distributors is today, by far, the largest full service distributor selling wine and servicing accounts across both the Carolinas.
