Ole Imports


Patrick Mata, one of two owners writes of his company and biz partner, Alberto Orte: "Olé Imports began in 1999 with just 3 wines. Our unique portfolio of Spanish wines has now grown to over 100 wines today. My dear friend and partner Alberto Orte and I have searched the Spanish peninsula for wines that share four fundamental elements: terroir, quality fruit, exceptional winemaking and last but not least, wines that present an exceptional value. Our winemaking consultant, as well as our occasional winemaker, Emili Esteve, a native of Catalunya, is one of Spain’s most renowned winemakers. We work together very closely to ensure that all of our expectations and goals are met."

"Patrick Mata, one of the most driven, passionate and talented young men in the wine world." - Wine Advocate 8/2013

"There are a couple of importers whose wines are so trustworthy that I will buy them regardless of what’s in the bottle. Kermit Lynch, of course, for French wine, and Olé Imports for Spanish wine. Mata’s and Orte’s passion for Spanish wine is famous, their palates are exceptional. Which is why I trust Olé implicitly." - Jeff Siegel, The Advocate Magazines
