Lionstone Customer Testimonials


May 28, 2024

"We are a mid-sized store in Upstate NY, and consistently purchase most top deep deals from many of the distributors.  In saying so, we appreciate the fact that we can purchase several products from Lionstone at a 1-c buy not needing to buy several cases of just one product.  This allows us to have a better array of choices for our customers.  

We have been purchasing products for our store from Lionstone NY for the past (3) three years and have never been disappointed! Their pricing structure is well-tuned. Most products drink much pricier than their cost!  When we find something that works well for our store, we increase the purchase of that product.   Additionally, Lionstone’s portfolio is very diverse, and the products are well-advertised on different platforms such as National Geographic making descriptions easy to find online. Our sales representative, Chris Hackett is very knowledgeable, not at all self-assertive. If you want the product, he has it!    The customer service is outstanding and second to none!   We would very much recommend giving Lionstone NY a try. We are quite happy we found them!"

Their vast selection of wines from around the world is truly impressive, but what sets them apart is their commitment to offering high-quality wines at affordable prices. Whether you're a wine connoisseur or just looking to try something new, this company has something for everyone. From rich and full-bodied reds to crisp and refreshing whites, their wines are consistently well-made and priced to please. I have had the pleasure of trying several of their wines, and I have been consistently blown away by their value and taste. My customers cannot get enough of our Lionstone wines. They are extremely popular because of their great taste and affordability."
