Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has launched a dedicated fine wine experience on their ecommerce platform SGProof.com, now available in 30 U.S. markets.
This Proof enhancement supports Southern Glazer’s development of the fine wine and artisanal wine business, focused on delivering results for the company’s growing family of wine partners.
The Fine Wine experience is part of Southern Glazer’s new SG+ enhanced service offering, designed specifically for and around Southern Glazer’s fine wine, artisanal wine, and craft and luxury spirits customers, the company says.

Proof currently serves 142,000 customer accounts and has generated $1.4 billion in revenue year-to-date, the company says. The platform launched in 2019.
