Continously Seeking Excellence in Our Craft

Del most flor, amb la dedicació i el rigor de l’obra artesanal ben feta. This Catalan saying graces the label of the first wine we imported, Avinyó Cava, and translates as “starting with the best part of the harvest, and exerting the dedication and rigor of a well-crafted work.” It is an idea which has guided our company philosophy since 1996. This concept of respecting the integrity of the source material with dedicated care drives us in our quest to work thoughtfully, share authentic culinary and cultural experiences, and leave things better than we found them.

Current Offers

Traditional Asturian Cider, now Non-Alcoholic

The Trabanco name is synonymous with handcrafted, premium quality natural sidra. Samuel Trabanco’s open-mindedness has led to iconic innovations like the en rama quinquina Alma, premium single-varietal Alicia, and the extra-brut sparkling Poma Áurea. That said, his latest release may be the most groundbreaking – a non-alcoholic variant on their Sidra Natural that faithfully maintains the body, acidity, texture, and nuance that the original is known for. Learn more about the release (including kegs!) in this summer’s offer.

A New Vintage of Next-Level Txakoli

Our unmatched roster of regional txakoli producers—talented, dedicated winemakers employing organic and restorative viticulture, minimal-intervention winemaking, and the reinforcement of Basque culture through the revival of indigenous grapes—showcase the full spectrum of txakolina’s potential for quality, even as they are frankly some of the most immediately pleasurable wines we carry. 

Basque Rosé & Catalan Pét-Nat in Cans

We can’t imagine wines more suited to the portable, lightweight, recyclable, and perfectly-portioned 8.4oz aluminum can format than Itxas Harri Roxà and Avinyó Petillant – crisp, refreshing, mouthwatering, and low-ABV vins de soif that are best enjoyed cold, fresh, and wherever friends are gathered. Prepare for summer’s arrival with our spring offer.

Jacoulot Petit Brandy is a Grand Innovation

An entirely new Burgundy brandy idea, but very much rooted in the standard of quality that Jacoulot is known for, Petit Brandy is a pinot noir distillate that marries rusticity with elegance, displaying the full breadth of what the noble grape has to offer. This vibrant spirit is soon to arrive at our shores, primed for spring cocktail season.

AMA Brewery and Muri Drinks headline Jancis Robinson’s Dry January Roundup

When De Maison approached the burgeoning No- and Low-ABV category, we did so by applying the same rigor and careful consideration has brought us a portfolio composed of superlative spirits and wines. Jancis Robinson’s team seems to agree with our methods, embracing the craftsmanship and attention to detail that make AMA and Muri stand way out amongst a crowded field of beverages.

Tim Atkin MW lauds legendary Spanish wineries Viña Sastre and Do Ferreiro

With the release of his 2023 Reports, Tim Atkin brought some high honors for two, proud, long-term partners of ours — “Viticulturist of the Year” for Jesús Sastre (Ribera del Duero) and “White Wine of the Year” for the 2021 Do Ferreiro Albariño Cepas Vellas (Rías Baixas) — along with praise for a number of their bottlings. Thank you Tim, and congratulations to the Méndez and Sastre families.

De Maison in W&S Top 100 

Wine & Spirits featured some DMS favorites in their annual roundup, honoring Brocard Pierre with a Top 100 Winery and vigneron Thibaud Brocard’s ‘Contrée Noire’ with a Top 100 Wine. Joining him in the accolades were Rioja Alta’s Conde de Hervías and Bierzo’s Jose Antonio García, receiving another Top 100 Wine and a Top 100 Best Buy, respectively. 

No matter the time, the hour is right for Vermouth

Eric Asimov highlights some superb examples for enjoying the Spanish tradition, featuring Trabanco’s singular Alma de Trabanco Quinquina en Rama and BCN’s “classic, modern” Ambre Vermut.

The Cognac Revolution is Here

Fourth-generation Cognac grower and distiller Frédéric Bourgoin reminds us that “revolution” doesn’t mean the appearance of something new, but rather, a return to that which is pure and fundamental, a restoration of what once was. Through Bourgoin, we have at last come back around to brandy distilled from estate-farmed, organic grapes, without blending, color correction, or filtration. Join us in rediscovering what we’ve all been missing.

A Fresh, Biodynamic Perspective on the Southern Rhône

Sébastien Clément is the proud inheritor of his family’s naturally-farmed vineyards in Châteauneuf de Gadagne, as well as that of the Provençal Occitan culture of his ancestors. He and his delicious single-varietal Rhône wines from Domaine des Garriguettes are carrying on both traditions with boundless enthusiasm.

Bordeaux Pirates Set Sail 

A legendary region in the midst of sweeping change, Bordeaux has, in recent years, attracted a wave of innovators from within and outside its borders. Our new Bordeaux wineries share an admiration for this venerable terroir, but divert from the conventional viticultural approach, pursuing a decisively natural course in both the vineyard and the cellar. Their sense of urgency in rescuing Bordeaux from its old ways has brought us enthusiastically aboard this journey.

A Talented Team and Exceptional Loire Terroir in Perfect Harmony

Thanks to the visionary guidance and humility of Michel Petitbois (since 2006, the owner of the historic Châteaux du Breuil et de la Roche), a team centered around sommelier and winemaker David Vigan has coalesced, each individual contributing their diverse skills to the overall mission of this stunning estate. Featuring an uncompromising commitment to regenerative agriculture, the thriving, living soils of Breuil produce some of the most exciting organic wines we’ve yet come across in the Middle Loire.  

Cans

The same spirit that drove us to be the first US importer to offer high-quality products in the keg format similarly inspired us to bring txakoli, sidra naturala, vino rosado, and pétillant from Spain in cans, thus expanding the opportunities for enjoyment of these authentic, light-hearted, thirst-quenching expressions.

Kegs

In our constant pursuit of innovation, especially as it pertains to provenance and maintaining freshness, we are pleased to offer an expanding range of wines, ciders, and vermouths in one-way, 20L recyclable keg format. Our selection is focused on the vin de soif category, with an emphasis on quality, food-friendliness, versatility, sustainability, and drinkability.
