The Uva Imports Philosophy
The thrill of discovery drives the team at Uva Imports. A young Adam Richard embarked on several backpacking trips through Europe in his early twenties, visiting wine regions along the way. His adventures gave way to purpose when the opportunity to live and work in Italy materialized. In Italy, Adam developed relationships with several winemaking families who would become the inspiration and foundation of the Uva portfolio, which he established in 2009.
Many of these families evolved into lifelong friends and partners. The journey began in Italy, but it did not end there. With the addition of Adam Fox in 2019, we expanded our family to include producers from around the globe.
Partnership is a core value at Uva Imports.These relationships, new and old, are built step-by-step over years. The inclusion of new producers into the family is not taken lightly. We rigorously search for producers who take a holistic approach, not only to farming, but to business, maintaining quality and value while celebrating tradition and regional
typicity. We work closely with our producers and stateside partners to ensure that integrity and stewardship are top priorities, from their soil to your table. At Uva, we believe that wine synthesizes passion, history, and nature. Each vintage represents a small chapter in the story told by the land and encapsulated by people.
We are proud to work with producers who embody sustainability. Many of them are certified biodynamic or organic,
all are keen to let the terroir speak for itself; people who work harmoniously with the land, generation after generation, maintaining tradition and embracing evolution.
Above all, we are immensely grateful for the hard work of our producers and their preservation of the land.
We are happy to share these experiences with you and hope it brings you as much joy as it brings us.
