Olé & Obrigado

Maker: Beverage Professional

Olé & Obrigado represents a collection of fine wines crafted by family-owned wineries in Spain and Portugal. A collaboration among business partners Patrick Mata, Alberto Orte and Rui Abecassis, Olé & Obrigado unites two passionate and highly specialized wine import companies to form the most comprehensive and well-curated collection of wines from the Iberian Peninsula available in the U.S.

At Olé & Obrigado, our mission is to import soulful wines of exceptional quality from Spain and Portugal. We represent over 40 boutique producers across the Iberian Peninsula. Our wines are sold through our distributor partners in all 50 states. We also self-distribute our wines in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania through our distribution company, Olé & Obrigado Direct. You can find our wines at fine wine shops, preferred retailers and restaurants across the U.S.

We also support many charitable initiatives. One of the best examples of this philanthropic ethos is our Spanish rosé, Liquid Geography, from which 100% of profits are donated to charitable causes.
