Our Members

The Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Tennessee is a statewide trade association of local businesses that plays a central role in distributing wine and spirits to restaurants and retail outlets. Our industry was created by the 21st Amendment, which gives wholesalers the responsibility to foster the safe and responsible distribution of beverage alcohol in Tennessee.

Ours is one of the healthiest wholesaler trade associations in the country comprised of more members than any other state. This ensures that the selection of wine and spirits products available in Tennessee is far greater than most states. We are committed to preserving the integrity of our products and the climate in which they are sold.
