Focused on Small Vineyards

A New York and New Jersey licensed importer and distributor, Gladiator Wine focuses on small local vineyards in Italy that practice clean farming, hand-harvesting, and low-yields so the vineyard determines the grape quality and character of the wine—not a laboratory.

Gladiator Wine Distribution guarantees origin, craft, and culture in every single bottle. And thousands of wine consumers are tasting the difference.

All our wines are stored at 60 degrees F in a temperature controlled warehouse, 24 hours a day.

"Tony's Hidden Gems Italian wine class is the best wine class I've ever been to. My girlfriend and I have been going to different wine classes around the city to learn more about wine. While we enjoyed all the classes, we really felt like we got so much more out Tony's wine class than all the others...the culture, the wine, the story behind the grapes, even how to shop for wine like a pro. Highly recommend!"
