Then: After spending a semester abroad in Oviedo, Spain, Josh Hackler founded Spanish Vines in 2006. The company sold five wines wholesale to restaurants and stores in North and South Carolina. He hoped to sell to restaurants in Manhattan and Southeastern states.
Now: Spanish Vines expanded its portfolio to 18 brands from 10 Spanish wineries and is selling to distributors in Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Nevada. He added a feature called "Travel the Vine," which features interviews with high-profile wine enthusiasts, on his Web site. Because of the decline in consumer spending, Hackler also planned to add a line that will retail for $7.
