Welcome to

Vintrendi Wine Company

Experience Wine, Redefined.

Our Story

Vintrendi Wine Company evolved from its predecessor company, Vanguard Beverage. Vanguard Beverage was a boutique wine and spirits distribution company that operated in the Chicago area from 2010 to late 2013.   It was a small company started by our founder, an adult beverage industry professional that decided to fill a void in the wine business.  While working in sales for the area’s major liquor distributors, our founder and winemaker realized that consumers were often confused when they began to explore the vast world of wine.


To change that situation, he developed a team of industry professionals and established Vanguard Beverage as the company with a portfolio of great tasting, easy to drink and approachable wines. His distribution company represented wine brands by various wineries but the brands didn’t always reflect the type of wines they hoped to offer to consumers. He began having wines created to match his vision but ultimately, he wanted to hand craft the wines himself to reflect his taste and cultural influences. It became evident that in order to completely realize his vision of what wine could be, he would have to craft the wines himself from start to finish. He had to become the winemaker. At that point the idea for Vintrendi Wine Company was born.
