Mise is a Massachusetts wine importer and distributor dedicated to real wine; hand-picked selections from producers who craft wines with properly grown grapes using traditional methods and eschewing manipulation. Every case of wine is curated, it will always be shipped via temperature control, and will arrive direct from the grower’s cellar to our warehouse in Newton. Each wine is chosen for Massachusetts, and represents to the end customer the highest ratio of quality to value.
Before there is wine, there comes the work of hands, heart, head and nature.
