OUR STORY

Elenteny Imports grew from a desire to help importers, wineries, and distilleries transport their brands across the globe, sharing their discoveries with the United States.

Importers of wine, beer, or spirits face multiple roadblocks. Currencies. Customs. Shipping. Taxes. Elenteny handles all the details of compliance, logistics, and delivery so you get back to the fun stuff: sourcing and selling an exceptional product.

The three-tier system is complex, but we simplify the experience of logistics and distribution. We’ve redefined the industry’s standards for adaptability and efficiency, making it easier for importers to focus on sales and thrive.

Co-founded in 2010 by Tim Elenteny and Alexi Cashen.

Alexi Cashen remains as Founder and CEO.

Elenteny’s Values in Action

Next Generation
Nimble
Attentive
Highly Effective
Service Driven
“The old school way is interested in moving cases versus moving quality. With Elenteny Imports, it’s a company with a youth mindset- very proactive, positive. They’re looking to the future, not to staying in the past. It feels good to be part of that, to be part of this company.”
“They’re geared toward my unique business model.”
“I didn’t realize the customer service I was getting [with a competitor] was bad until I saw what it could be.”
“As soon as I switched to Elenteny, I bought myself an additional 20 hours a week. You make a purchase order and you don’t have to worry about it.”
“They’re problem solvers. They work really hard to identify what the needs are and to build services around those needs.”
