In 1990, Eric Solomon founded European Cellars with a handful of unknown estates from largely unknown places. In the beginning, his import portfolio was centered in the south of France, where it spread naturally to encompass wines from the Tuscan coast to the far southern reaches of Spain – anywhere his curiosity for the next discovery led him.
Having recently celebrated our 30th anniversary, Eric Solomon Selections remains one of the most significant import portfolios in the United States. The name Eric Solomon on a back label has become a symbol of quality, value, and dependability.
Many of the first properties Eric imported into the US remain in this portfolio, along with his appellation-defining custom cuvées. Over the last three decades, Eric has watched many of his earliest growers not only achieve international fame, but he has watched as parents have turned the reigns over to their children.
Eric Solomon Selections remains and will continue to be one of the most reliable and innovative French & Spanish import portfolios in the United States.
