Hand Picked Selections
Founded by Dan Kravitz in 1985, Hand Picked Selections is a national importer of wines from France, Spain, Italy and Argentina. Dan started the company with a focus on the red wines of Bordeaux, but quickly recognized the untapped potential for quality in Southern France. HPS went on to build a pioneering stable of benchmark growers from the Southern Rhône Valley, Provence, Roussillon and Languedoc, and over time, gained a reputation for its incredible values —superlative wines loaded with character and personality—that often tasted like they could easily cost two or three times their actual price.
The company has grown substantially over the past three decades, and now has a national footprint with a strong distribution network in more than 45 states. The portfolio has also grown to include wines from other French regions, Spain, Italy, and Argentina. In 2007, Dan purchased his own vineyard, Domaine Cabirau, in the small village of Maury (Roussillon).
Though HPS has come a long way since Dan started the company as a small, home-based business, our commitment to working closely with artisan growers to source consistently characterful, balanced, and food-friendly wines has remained unchanged. We invite you to join us for a glass.
