Mozy Tehrani began working in the wine industry in 1979 at the retail level.  In 1984 Mozy and Stephanie Tehrani founded Collector’s Wine Marketing, serving as agents for select California wineries and their wines.  In 1985, they began working with wines imported from France and incorporated in 1987.   By 1989 it was evident the business had changed dramatically with the emphasis on the imported wines, especially from Bordeaux, France, where Mozy was steadily securing the highly allocated wines available through Futures.  In 1995, they separated the brokering and by-then larger importing functions and obtained import and wholesale licenses under Exclusive Imports, Inc. 

Over time, the Bordeaux futures market has changed significantly and Exclusive Imports, Inc. is now involved in virtually every major appellation in France, and in Ports.  We pride ourselves in bringing new wines to American retailers that are the definition of value and integrity.  Each appellation has its own voice and in an-ever shrinking world, we are still committed to finding new producers, both big and small, and winemakers and innovators who believe as we do.  French wines are a tremendous source of value, quality, taste and are rightfully differentiated in the wine world as standard bearers. 

Further, Exclusive Imports strives to elevate the French category for all its retail clients and offers personal service and support to help your customers understand and enjoy the wines we import for you.  With an extensive portfolio, contacts, and decades of experience, let us help you seize the many opportunities available and bring the wines of France and Port alive for your stores and your customers.
