My Wines Direct Shuts Down

My Wines Direct has closed.


On Dec. 22, 2011, Wine Industry Insight quoted My Wines Direct CEO Robert Miller as saying the company was looking  for a buyer. Employees, clients and suppliers indicated that they believed the company would close this week. Their fears have been confirmed.

The My Wines Direct Web site today also closed, posting only the following message:

My Wines Direct, Inc. has closed down to reorganize and restructure. All previous orders will be fulfilled.

The team behind My Wines Direct is very grateful for your past patronage, and for the opportunity we have had to bring you great wines at terrific values since 2004.

You may contact us via email

Thank you again for the past seven years of business.
Best Wishes for 2012!

The Team at My Wines Direct

No public assessment has been made on the extent of losses, but one winery who emailed WII said they were owed $30,000.

My Wines Direct is not affiliated with two other companies with similar names: Direct Wines, owned by Laithwaites in the UK or which grew out of the merger of Inertia Beverage Group and WTN/Services (formerly owned by 1-800-FLOWERS).
