The Handcrafted team is unlike any in Oklahoma. We bring over 100 years experience of selling and marketing delicious wines, beers and spirits in the USA and overseas. But the Handcrafted team also has hands-on expertise in vineyard management, winemaking, importing, and exporting. We have owned and managed restaurants, hotels, clubs, retail stores and wine bars. We know what it’s like to prune a vine, choose a cork supplier, write a wine list, manage a hectic 7 PM dinner rush, re-set a store shelf, unload a truck or do an emergency will call at 8PM on Friday night.

 

And while our education includes Masters degrees and we have studied for the Master of Wine Diploma, we never lose sight of what we are here to do; service our trade partners in Oklahoma with unbeatable professionalism while showcasing the craft and hard work our suppliers undertake every day in their vineyards, orchards, farms and cellars across the world.
