Acute Angle Wines can purchase wine from any distributor in the State of Illinois. We work closely with a handful who we feel carry a thoughtful, diverse and high-quality selection. The list includes but is not limited to: Candid Wines, Cream Wines, Fine Vines, Maverick Wine Company, Robert Houde Wines, Simple Farmer Wines. Many of these distributors also direct import some high quality wines.
We are tremendous fans of wine importers that offer a real point of view. When purchasing imported wine using the importer as a reference is an excellent selection tool. We have a working knowledge base and ready access to the wines of the following importer’s portfolios. This is not a complete list but rather benchmark companies in the world of grower focused importers.

Louis/Dressner– Primarily French and Italian Wines, an early proponent of natural wine.
Kermit Lynch– An inspiring book of French and Italian wine.
