"As an entrepreneur and someone that likes "real" wines, I'm intrigued by what you're doing. We had so many reasonably priced, excellent wines in France that we just can't get here. Getting access to wines like that is very cool."
- Steve Betz
"So far everything has been very unique, which being from the [San Francisco] Bay Area is a breath of fresh air."
- Warren Muller
"The wine is stellar. We're both loving it."
- Joseph Hovespian
"Great people, great wines, quality service, and, oh yeah...a SUPERIOR website with all the info you could ever need on their wines. 5 stars only because that's as high as it goes."
- Marci Rochester
"I'm already a big fan of the wines of Portugal and I was very impressed with the selections Alleah poured."
- Marcy Gordon
"This wine blew me away. It seemed more complex than other reds I've had, and just had a sophistication to it that I loved. It wasn't overly fruity and the floral nature to it was nice but not overbearing. It went really well with our meal and was a great conversation piece with our guests."
- Neil Rieger
"I have followed the Bliss Wine Imports story on Facebook for months now. I have been totally impressed by their journey to find the best tasting wines at the best value. Most wine buying groups are just finding the wine they like that is already in the USA. Bliss goes to the source and finds the best!"
- Jason Reid
"I've been following Bliss Wine Imports's story from the beginning, learning about wine from Alleah and Erin's travels. Alleah's wine videos and blog about the wines proved to me that she knew her stuff. Her dedication to researching these little known family wineries impressed me so much that I decided to try one of her 6-pack cases for the holidays. The wine arrived on-time and well packed (and biodegradable packaging!). I enjoyed trying the different types of wines as I perused the Bliss website. I brought a bottle of the 2012 Caecus Verderón white to my neighbor's dinner party, and it was a big hit! What a way to impress my new neighbors! I'm looking forward to tasting the next collection!"
- Pilar Newman
"Everything about Alleah's approach to importing – meeting the producers face to face, handpicking the wines, and connecting the consumer with the winemakers – appeals to me. The wines capture a sense of time and place in a bottle. Those of us who participated in the tasting quickly realized we were tasting the future of wine importing and it sure is blissful."
- Elizabeth Smith
