ST. AMAND NEW WORLD WINES, BREWS, AND SPIRITS WAS BORN OF A PASSION FOR ALL THAT THE U.S. MARKET HAS TO OFFER IN TERMS OF INNOVATION AND QUALITY IN WINES, BEERS AND SPIRITS; COMBINED WITH A FASCINATION FOR THE AMAZING CULTURES AND LANGUAGES OF LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN.

Joseph G Toenjes was born and raised in the Midwest and traveled extensively throughout Europe and Latin America from an early age. The idea of sharing the quality of U.S. wines, brews and spirits with our neighbors to the South inspired Joseph to found St. Amand.

What gave him the push he needed was the realization that throughout the Latin American and Caribbean markets many opportunities were being lost by the majority of U.S. wineries, craft breweries, and distilleries due to a lack of communication, a cultural gap, and the hesitance to commit the resources needed to produce lasting success in these markets.

Armed with the conviction that the best wines, beers, and spirits were not necessarily the ones with the most marketing dollars behind them, but could more reliably be found in the boutique world of family wineries, breweries, and distilleries, extensive research was done to bring together the best of these producers into the portfolio, which is what we at St. Amand present to you today.

Cheers!
