Corpus Christi Caller Times - East Coast Movement

— A Corpus Christi-based wine importer is expanding its distribution through a partnership with an East Coast beverage company.

It will be the first time Martin Ulisse Wines, 2801 Holly Road, distributes its wines outside of Texas, according to a company news release.

The company now has an alliance with Blue Coast Beverages, a Massachusetts supplier. Martin Ulisse will establish a warehouse in New Jersey.

“While geographically, Massachusetts may seem like an unusual first step, the strong Italian heritage in the Boston area and proximity to the port in New Jersey made it a great fit,” company president and founder Chrissy Martin said.

Martin Ulisse Wines imports family-made wines from the Abruzzo region of Italy and the Puglia and Campania regions. The company also imports wines from Spain and Israel.
