Our Philosophy

Right Brain Selectifull-servicel service sales and marketing company for producers of wine and spirits. We are youthful, energetic, and passionately aggressive with our approach. We are selective with who we decide to work with, and we strongly stand behind each brand we sign on.

The backbone of our value is based in our strong relationships with a nationwide network of wine and spirits distributors. We handle each brand with a unique approach, pairing them with distributors that we believe will best represent the brand and whose capabilities align with the goals we collectively set out to achieve, both in the near and long term.

Summed up in one sentence, we are not here to sell boxes, we are here to build brands.

Our Story

Right Brain Selections is a subsidiary of Handcrafted Wine & Spirits.  Founded in 1996, Handcrafted Wine & Spirits is family owned and operated wine and spirits distribution company with locations in Kansas, Oklahoma and Oregon.  Our ownership team brings more than a century of fine wine experience to bear on our enterprise.  Our owners not only have experience in owning and running successful fine wine distributorships, but also possess deep financial acumen, and, unusual for a wine distributorship, extensive experience in wine grape farming and winemaking.  Additionally, our ownership team has worked at senior-most levels on the supplier side for both small, luxury wine brands as well as larger commercial wine brands.

While Right Brain Selections is the newest company in the Handcrafted portfolio, we operate with the knowledge and resources of a much more seasoned operation.  Between our ownership group, management team, and our National Sales Director,  we bring an immense about of skills and experience to the table for our each and every one of our clients.
