SommSelect State of the Union

SommSelect State of the Union

A note from our CEO about the current state of business at SommSelect. Read on for a clarification of our recent filing, and reassurance that we're operating at full capacity!

For more than eight years, SommSelect has brought the sommelier experience home to thousands of curious wine drinkers. As you may already know, on July 14th, SommSelect made the decision to file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection. This action was a proactive step in securing the bright future we all see for the company.

In an effort to be completely transparent, and reassure you, our customers, regarding the state of our business, we have shared that this was in direct response to ongoing shareholder dispute. The bankruptcy protection was filed to safeguard the valuable assets we deliver to you, as well as the dedicated SommSelect employees that work to get you wine every day. The bankruptcy process is rigorous, but we are coming out of this time with an exciting plan focused on strengthening our organization so we can continue to bring the best quality wine from around the world into your home for decades to come.

Our goal will always be to do our best to make sure that you are never affected by anything happening behind the scenes. SommSelect is still operating as usual, and your products will be shipped to you in the same manner they have been in the past. If it does appear that SommSelect is holding your order, you can be confident that it is not a reflection on the current state of the business, but likely a reflection of summer climates, and of our Extreme Heat Hold policy.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us; we’re here to make sure that SommSelect continues to be part of your life as it always has been. You can also expect continued communication from us as this process moves forward, but rest assured we are still the SommSelect you know and love. We are confident that we will come out of this time as a stronger company, committed to providing the excellent product and service to which you are accustomed.
