ABOUT LATITUDE BEVERAGE COMPANY:
Latitude Beverage Company was founded in 2007 when founder Kevin Mehra saw an opportunity to make high end wine more accessible to a greater number of people by transforming oversupply at wineries into lower prices for consumers. This unique business model, based on the century old function of the wine négociant, became the foundation for the wine label 90+ Cellars, which launched in 2009 by Kevin and co-founder Brett Vankoski. This same business model has enabled Latitude Beverage Company to expand its portfolio into four additional labels—Iron Side Cellars, Magic Door Vineyards, Earthshaker Wines and Mija Sangria.
