Established in 2003, Atlas Imports was founded by James Cosma, with the primary intent of exposing the US consumer to the exceptional wines from the world’s most dynamic wine-making regions. The portfolio includes wines from Argentina, France, Spain, Italy, New Zealand and South Africa. All of the wineries represented have a long history of wine making and Atlas Imports goes to great lengths to ensure the wines meet exceptional quality standards. The wines represented by Atlas Imports are consistently rated amongst the highest by top wine critics and trade publications year after year. Atlas Imports is constantly seeking new wineries to expand to serve the ever-growing demand for excellent wines at competitive prices.
Atlas Imports is committed to working with wineries who have the following three components: family owned properties, that have a tradition of making wine for at least 100 years and lastly, to have a commitment to the environment-whether that is growing organically, using biodynamics or simple sustainable practices.
Atlas covers the nation with an extremely strong network of distributor partners. We believe that the wine industry is best served when the winery, importer and distributor all strive to best supply the consumer with common goals and focus.
With corporate offices in Waterford, Michigan, Atlas Imports operates primarily from Chicago, Illinois—a city that pairs perfectly with wine because of its well-known reputation for an exceptional restaurant culture. To further impact and learn from the world of wine, Atlas travels to ProWein, VinItaly, and VinExpo annually and participates in many trade events around the country.
