We’ve woven this week’s update into the monthly newsletter so you can get all your import news in a single click.
The window for East Coast holiday shipments is here.
Based on the information we have from recent arrivals, the time has come to place your holiday shipments. This is primarily aimed at any wine that you require for Thanksgiving, but it doesn’t hurt to get an early jump on Christmas. Unlike Santa, Elenteny Imports does not have a red nosed reindeer to help guide our shipments to their destinations as scheduled. So we are relying on an early warning system to help you avoid any unforeseen delays. Here is a list of the current time frames you can expect from our various points of origin.
Customer Spotlight: Prufrock Wines
Like the T. S. Eliot poem, Prufrock Wines was born from the “lamentation of inertia.” With a sense of oenophilic anguish, Prufrock embraces wines that are confounding yet satisfying, complex yet effortless, seductive, yet respectably so.
Founded in 2014 by Joshua Segal, Prufrock brings in soulful wines from France, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia, California and Oregon. Each wine is made with sustainable, organic and natural practices.

Grace O’Reilly is changing that. She is implementing new ways to track data and source it down to the farm where the barley was born.
Tune in as Alexi talks to Grace O’Reilly, Agronomist at Waterford Distillery. Discover how to use older art forms of distillation, and see how Grace brought back several antique strains of barley, producing unique whiskey by merging them with modern, organic ways of farming.
