Hemispheres Wine Distributors Incorporated was founded by John Sholota November 23rd 2004 after investing 20+ years in the logistics industry servicing customers such as BMW, Coors, Evian, Red Bull… While frequently traveling to Napa Valley, John fell in love with the people, wine, and lifestyle. The announcement of his daughter Mia Nicole stimulated the change in his business direction to be more grounded and build a legacy.
Our business model was based utilizing John’s supply chain logistics background from start up operations, transportation, warehousing, and IT systems, customer relations accompanied with his passion of Napa Valley’s boutique wineries. During our third year of operation, we carefully folded in wines from around the world generating diversity in selections and price points to effectually provide full wine service to restaurants, country club’s and retail locations for the entire state of Georgia. Today we continue to stay abreast of the market demands and can move fluently through flexible storage, the programming ability to tweak our custom warehouse management system and still not having any type of partners or acquisitions.
To effectively transfer knowledge from winery to customer, instill product integrity and provide a healthy lifestyle for our employees.
Hemispheres is properly insured, secured, and suited with conditioned storage and transportation. During the warmer months we receive wine via container, truck, and van with air-conditioned units. Product is stored cork down in rack on wire decking or single high bulk pallet stacking with a 12” perimeter to allow proper air circulation from the 4 interior units. Our vans also have interior rear mounted air-conditioned unit to assure wine is delivered to our customers in the best condition possible.
