Mims Distributing Company Announces Addition Of Senegal Estate To Wine Portfolio

RALEIGH, N.C., March 31, 2016– Mims Distributing Company, a leading North Carolina wholesale beverage distributor, has announced its new partnership with Sinegal Estate, a winery located in Napa Valley, California. With the first grape vines planted on the 30-acre estate in the 1800s, Sinegal Estate has a rich wine history. Owner David Sinegal brought together an all-star team with winemaker Tony Biagi and vineyard manager Jim Barbour in order to produce some of Napa’s best Cabernet Sauvignon.


The team follows a detailed process, which Sinegal estimates to include as many as 1,403 steps from field to vine to glass. The team focuses on every detail and uses cutting edge technology to measure phenolic details throughout the entire winemaking process. The results have been impressive 95 point or higher scores from wine critic Robert Parker on three of the wines in the very first vintage.


Mims Distributing partners with wineries in Oregon, Washington and California, as well as Europe, South America and New Zealand, to bring quality wines to wine enthusiasts in North Carolina. Since re-engaging in the wine business in 2014, Mims has seen explosive growth and success, and anticipates that it will continue to partner with landmark wineries like Sinegal Estate.



“There is so much talent and dedication in the team of people at Sinegal Estate.” said Michael Gunnells, vice president of sales for Mims Distributing’s wine division. “From the very first vintage Tony made at Sinegal Estate, you knew right away how special this estate is. We are so very proud to be able to share these wines with the great customers of North Carolina.”


“We are excited to partner with Mims Distributing in order to share our wines with wine lovers in North Carolina,” said David Sinegal, vinter and general manager of Sinegal Estate. “After meeting with the team at Mims Distributing, we feel that they are the perfect distributor for us. We have a shared passion and attention to detail that is a must for success in the wine business.”
