Corks popped today at Signature Wines on news that the firm has been named to Inc. Magazine's 2005 Inc. 500 list of America's fastest growing private companies. The Hayward, California-based wine seller vaulted on to the coveted list through an innovative mix of internet-based custom private label solutions, wine club services and the Graceland Cellars(R) brand of Elvis Presley(R) wines.
"We're thrilled to be named one of America's fastest growing companies," said Signature Wines CEO Scott Cahill. "As premium wine continues to grow in popularity, we expect that our innovative approach to wine sourcing, marketing, and distribution will keep us on the list for years to come."
Signature Wines, in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE), bottles Elvis Presley's Graceland Cellars Jailhouse Red Merlot, The King Cabernet Sauvignon, Blue Suede Chardonnay and Blue Christmas Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Signature Wines has established retail distribution in over 40 states and earlier this year Wine Business Monthly magazine named Graceland(R) Cellars one of the top 10 hottest small wine brands of the year.
