SAWM, or "Spanish American Wine Importers" is a company that works closely with unique producers from Spain and Argentina. Their producers all share the same standards, vision, and values: with vineyards that have been family-owned for generations, they’re guided by a clear focus on exceptional quality and ‘terroir.’ The respect they give to their vines—with minimum intervention in the winery—helps them to produce some of the best wines coming out of both Spain and Argentina.
