Wine for the World helps you discover delicious, thoughtful wines from unconventional wine regions.
We’re a young wine import company working exclusively with boutique producers and artisanal family vineyards. We make our selections based on quality, responsible social and environmental business practices, limited production levels, and micro-market share in the US.
In addition to our portfolio of imports, we produce a collaborative brand that brings together emerging winemakers from abroad and established winemakers from the US. Our aim is to highlight talent, promote exchange, and make the wine world just a little smaller.
In addition to scouting top producers from each region, we seek winemakers that embrace environmentally sustainable practices because they, like us, philisophically believe that better wine is made without the use of many additives or manipulation. They are certified by local and/or international organizations for sustainable viticulture practices.
Mika Bulmash is WSET Level 3 certified, and started Wine for the World with a passion for wine and a career in development. Previously working with market access initiatives in Latin America for agricultural farmers, food security, and public health, she left the development consulting path to follow her longtime wine calling. In 2011, she spent a harvest in the Western Cape of South Africa. There she discovered, of course, incredible wines, along with consistent themes from her former work, and an unmet customer need. Recognizing that wine drinkers today love to explore new regions, discover new wines, and care so much about the process behind the products they put into their bodies, she created the company with two aims: to make it easier for wine lovers and talented producers to find one another; and support sustainable growers from up-and-coming regions. Mika graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley, with a double Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology and International Development. Currently based in New York City, she has worked in Australia, Peru, Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica, Uganda, and South Africa. She loves a great Chenin Blanc.
