barter: to exchange one commodity for another
Who we are:
The Barterhouse leadership and advisory team has over 50 years of combined business experience in product marketing, brand strategy, and the advertising business. Our founder, Brian DiMarco, has a distinctive background that includes achieving the Grand Diploma from the French Culinary Institute, being a certified Sommelier, and a member of the Jurade de St. Émilion, Bordeaux’s vinous brotherhood. Additionally, DiMarco held key marketing positions at prominent advertising agencies and beverage companies including Grey, Anheuser-Busch, McCann, Bacardi, and Stella Artois Beer.
What we do:
The Barterhouse experience is unique. Whether you are a supplier, retailer, restaurateur, or private collector, we work closely with you to understand and meet your specific needs.
Barterhouse is a licensed importer, wholesaler, and auction house specializing in estate-bottled wines and craft liquor as well as a recognized broker of investment grade wines and spirits.
How we do it:
We purposely trade in two distinct tiers — investment grade wines >$100 bottle and “everyday” high quality estate bottled and private label offerings < $30).
We focus on established demand categories like Champagne and Blue-chip collectable wines. We maintain growth and volume by staying competitive in hi-value growth categories like Provence Rose’, Mezcal, Sancerre, and Prosecco.
Why we're different:
At Barterhouse, we never forget that, although wine can be a valuable investment commodity, it is always one of life’s greatest pleasures. That’s why we put just as much care into selecting a great $15 bottle as we would when choosing one for $15,000. Understanding the many values of the adult beverage experience defines our business model. And most importantly, we love what we do.
