Universal Beverage Imports “UBI” Imports unique quality wines from around the world. UBI relationships abroad and domestic gives the ability to blend the perfect balance of quality, variety and value to be competitive in the market. Our professional and bi-lingual administration core competencies enforce our customer service values: Sales support, Distribution support, logistics, warehousing, TTB/Colas, Federal & State compliance, registrations & licensing.
Universal Beverage Imports recognizes that over the past 30 years there has been an increasing worldwide admiration for the wines and wine styles from unique wine making regions of the world.
Wines from South America tend to be immediately appealing on release. New World wines have been able to establish international reputations for wine makers who know how to create and style wines that elegantly express the Terroir and the distinctive fruit of the vine. Company personnel travel regularly to wine making regions Old World & New World keeping an eye out for locally gifted producers to provide them with the broader recognition they deserve.
Our goal is to establish long-term relationships and secure exclusive contracts with the wineries to insure our mutual commitment to consistently high wine quality and to successful brand building.
Vineyard site selection is the single most important aspect of quality grape production. Technology is creating advanced methods of vineyard site selection. The Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are among the best of these. Our wineries rely on them to optimize their vineyard design and the wine styles of the local Terroir.
