Who we are
About VOS Selections
A family company since 1987, VOS Selections was founded by Victor Owen Schwartz. Working alongside his mother who instilled in him a love for fabulous food and wine, Victor’s goal was to create a different kind of wine company from what existed at the time. Since 2019, Victor has been joined by his daughter, Chloë Syrah Schwartz, whose own experiences making wine and working in France have brought exciting, fresh ideas to the VOS Portfolio.
It all started when Victor moved to France to pursue his dream of bringing artisanal wines from undiscovered appellations to the New York market. He absorbed the philosophy of vignerons: great wine can only be made on a human scale, and the finest expression is crafted from what nature bestows. This is the ideal that VOS Selections has successfully brought to the market for 37 years.
Today, VOS Selections honors those founding principles with Wines, Spirits, and Sakes from 16 different countries and 5 continents; every single product is carefully selected for its quality and authenticity. The wines and spirits in the VOS Selections portfolio are hand-made by people who strive to express the essential qualities of their place. The VOS team shares the same passion for excellence, serving the New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia markets with personal service and a hands-on attention to customers’ needs.
The creation and enjoyment of Wine, Spirits, and Sakes is an essentially human experience. These hand-crafted products represent the ultimate expression of a culture and place, of people interacting at the highest level with nature, of families stewarding the land for generations to come.
The search is unending, and the experience is continually unfolding. We welcome you to engage in that experience whenever you open a VOS Selection.
