Our passion for wine is demonstrated by what we import. Each of the vineyards we represent is family owned and run and produce between 500 and 6000 cases of wine each year. With rare exception, all grow their own grapes and many even hand prune and hand pick their grapes! This results in some of the best wines available anywhere, none of which you will ever find on a grocery store shelf.
CLD Imports LLC grew from a great many trips down under. What started as a combination of business and pleasure trips by our holding company Carreras and Graham, ended as the conception CLD Imports LLC. Our wine selections remind us of the enjoyable times one remembers after sitting down to a pleasant meal and an undiscovered, surprising bottle of wine. We strive to make a mark in our home state, Illinois and the surrounding Midwest Region, bringing boutique and undiscovered quality wines from the most auspicious wineries in the South Australian regions. We hope that you appreciate our mission to make our work also our play.
