USA: WineryExchange.Com Forms Partnership With Joseph W. Ciatti Company
WineryExchange.com will be the exclusive e-commerce site for the Ciatti Company, providing industry buyers and sellers with access to the Ciatti Company's extensive bulk wine and grape inventory twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
"Like every competitive business, wine and grape production and distribution is going to enjoy the benefits of online trading and relationship management. WineryExchange will enable the Ciatti Company to further enhance our global presence and market leadership," says Joe Ciatti, president of the Joseph W. Ciatti Company.
A trusted source of timely information and wine-based products, the Joseph W. Ciatti Company annually negotiates the sale of approximately 110 million gallons of wine, juice, concentrate, brandy and specialty alcohol products. Ciatti's brokers and oenologists operate in all of the world's great wine-growing regions: Europe, South America, Australia and California. The company negotiates long-term grape and bulk wine contracts, grape crushing contracts, facilitates U.S. wine and grape exports, and provides wine industry market analysis and inventory valuation services.
"Ciatti's partnership with WineryExchange extends the wine industry's tradition of personal, relationship-based business to the Internet, where our information technology will make bulk wine and grape buying a more efficient process," explained Peter Byck, president of WineryExchange. "Attracting the support of the world's largest wine broker is a major endorsement of WineryExchange's wine industry B2B strategy. We're definitely opening a bottle of the good stuff tonight!"
