USA: AlliantLink.com Taps PourTheWine.com as the First Preferred Vendor in The AlliantLink.com Shopping Mall
Under the agreement, AlliantLink.com restaurant, hotel and other foodservice customers can link from the "Shopping Mall" icon on the AlliantLink.com home page to PourTheWine.com to order from a broad selection of high-quality boutique wines. Deliveries from PourTheWine.com will be available to Illinois customers beginning in August. The program will roll out nationwide over the next nine months.
"We welcome PourTheWine.com as our first vendor partner in the AlliantLink.com Shopping Mall," said Barbara G. Moss, senior vice president and chief operating officer of AlliantLink.com, Inc. "This relationship gives our customers easy access to exceptional and previously unavailable wines, providing additional points of differentiation and favorable profit opportunities. This agreement is the first in a series that will provide even greater value to AlliantLink.com customers by increasingly enabling them to consolidate their purchases of goods and services with one-stop shopping convenience."
"We are delighted to form this relationship with AlliantLink.com to offer punch-through access to PourTheWine.com," said Jeffrey L. Ibsen, president, PourTheWine.com. "This opportunity will provide convenience and value for AlliantLink.com customers. It permits them to order these highly marketable wines through local state-licensed distributors, and it will provide increased visibility for PourTheWine.com."

PourTheWine.com fulfills orders through local distributors in accordance with all laws governing the sale and distribution of wine in the state in which the ordering customer does business. Deliveries are made by those local distributors, and not by Alliant Foodservice or by AlliantLink.com.
