Tiamo, an Italian wine brand made from organically farmed grapes imported by Illinois-based Winesellers, Ltd., has been awarded the prestigious 2015 IMPACT “Hot Prospect” from M. Shanken Communications, Inc. The achievement is based on multi-year sales growth and performance in the U.S. market.

“We are so honored to receive this award and extremely proud of the success of Tiamo,” says Jordan Sager, VP of Winesellers, Ltd. “Tiamo showcases the rich diversity of regional Italian wines, while bringing consumers the best quality and values under organically farmed practices.”

The esteemed recognition spotlights brands with at least 15 percent depletion growth in the previous year and consistent growth in the preceding two years.  Brands must sell at least 50,000 cases to qualify, but not exceed 250,000 cases sold.

Tiamo, a partnership between Winesellers, Ltd. and Master Wines (Melvyn, Janie and Charles Master), is an innovative brand geared towards modern wine consumers and trend-setting retailers and restaurants. The sparkling and white selections include an elegant Prosecco D.O.C. (750ml $15/187ml $5), a crisp, but fruit-forward Venezia D.O.C. Pinot Grigio ($12), and a bright and fresh Grillo ($11) from Sicily. For reds, the brand includes a beautiful, single estate Chianti D.O.C.G. ($12 SRP) from Montespertoli and a light, but fruit driven Barbera ($11) from Pavia, Lombardy.  The Pinot Grigio, Grillo and Barbera are also available in 20 liter kegs for on- premise wine on tap.
