-   MCS BAUER  -

Wein-Bauer Imports is a family owned and operated Wine and Spirits import company based in Chicago, Illinois since August of 1980. The Bauer family has a deep-rooted history in winemaking prior to starting their imports company. Manfred Bauer, founder and owner of WBI, worked in his family’s wine cellar before beginning his journey to bring them to the U.S. market. Manfred was a third-generation winemaker whose vision was to bring not only his family’s wines to an international level but to be an ambassador of European wines. 


Wein-Bauer’s portfolio primarily focuses on import wines from Austria, Germany, Portugal, Hungary, France, and Argentina on a national level across 49 U.S. states. Their entrepreneurial mindset is still the driving force, as Manfred Bauer and his son Christopher, continue to find innovative, value-driven and family-oriented producers. Today, Wein-Bauer operates with regional offices in the East Coast, West Coast and in the Midwest. They also have brokers in key states to ensure that Wein-Bauer can properly service their country-wide distribution network.
