About Us

Our mission is simple – to offer the greatest wines Europe has to offer at the most competitive pricing in the country. We don’t offer every wine, only those we personally love and drink ourselves, and only when the pricing is right. Though we deal in wines from all the major regions in Europe, our primary focus is France (mostly Burgundy, Rhone, Champagne) and Italy (Piedmont and Tuscany), with a particular emphasis on Burgundy, which account for over 75% of our sales.

Cellar Door was founded in 2005 by Kyle Smith as an import company specializing in sourcing fine and rare wine out of Europe on behalf of prominent U.S. retailers, restaurants and private collectors who were otherwise limited to what local suppliers had to offer.  At the time, bypassing the tree tier system and buying/self-importing wine directly out of Europe was cutting edge. Few were doing it at the time. Now it’s commonplace. However, our 20 or so year head start has given us a huge competitive advantage over “newcomers” to the game. Plus, just between Founder Kyle Smith and Vice President David Russell alone, there is a combined 60+ years’ industry experience. Accordingly, as one might expect, the close relationships we’ve developed over the years with our supply network of European producers, distributors, brokers, negociants, retailers, restaurant owners, private collectors, domestic importers/suppliers, etc., is second to none.

The vast majority of our wine is sold through direct email. In fact, most of our offerings never make to our website. If you are not already on our Private Client Email List, we strongly encourage you to sign up.
