Salveto Wine Distributors was established in 2016 by Dmitrii Curbet and Gray Mosby, two guys with years of experience in the wine industry in Virginia and Washington, DC. They also shared one unique common denominator: both of their mothers are wine-makers. Dmitrii’s mom, now retired, made wine in Moldova for decades. He started Salveto in 2008, importing wine from his native Moldova. Gray’s mother, started making wine in the late ’90s in New Zealand, following a lifelong dream. Presently Salveto imports wine from 7 countries and distributes wine from 15 countries. Salveto is based in Alexandria VA and distributes in VA, DC, and MD. Additionally, Salveto imports are sold in other States in the US.
