Team

Ambiente is proud to claim some of the best and most experienced wine professionals in Texas. Ambiente is committed to making the Company the best wholesaler to work for by allowing staff to provide custom solutions for their customers and territory with a focus on education. Ambiente’s education focus also includes employee trips to wine producing regions during the crucial points of the growing season to better understand the wine. These visits allow for interaction and tastings directly with the producers to gain a better understanding of each wine and the potential of the vintage. The direct interaction with the producers creates both a price-to-quality relationship and educational story for Ambiente’s customers that is unique to the Texas market.

Ambiente has wine executives and sales teams dedicated to every market in Texas.
