THE VERITAS STORY

Veritas Imports was founded by John Winthrop in 1991 with the principal objective of providing California restaurants with a ready supply of old and rare wine and spirits. Originally sourced from his personal collection assembled while resident in Paris as an international lawyer (conseiller juridique), the Veritas cellar was supplemented with additional wines acquired by John from a circle of his European friends. Gradually expanding its focus to meet the growing market demand from Las Vegas, Colorado, and Arizona, Veritas secured exclusive agencies to represent celebrated French domaines in its markets.

 

As the millennium approached, Veritas withdrew from the old-and-rare trade and focused its energies on the sourcing, importation, and distribution of exclusively-represented French wine and spirits. At present, while continuing to add depth to its comprehensive offerings from France, Veritas is increasingly expanding its emphasis to include wines from Italy and the United States.

 

Veritas maintains an active sales team of enthusiastic, experienced and educated specialists throughout California, and reaches out, directly through its own team as well through our local partners, into Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and New York.
