Philosophy & Values

We intentionally bring value to the market, meaning quality in bottle at relative price, brand awareness/equity, and service. We appreciate our supplier partners input and act as a transparent representative of both their products and the markets' feedback.

State & Brand Registration

To sell to a wholesale distributor in Washington and Idaho, you must obtain a Certificate of Compliance & register all brands with a Wholesaler Designation Form.


It is the annual responsibility of the suppliers to renew their Certificate of Compliance which needs to be completed prior to June 30 of each year. If we do not have a copy of your current renewed Certificate by August 1, no Purchase Orders can be written.

State Tax Information

These taxes are paid monthly by Cru Selections to the state and are a factor in your pricing.

Vendor Visits

We appreciate the time and effort our suppliers make to support their brands in the market. To maximize the opportunity, we restrict market work to Tuesday through Thursday. Visits need to be scheduled 3 months in advance to best insure a successful visit. Our suppliers' time and resources and our representative time in the market is finite; we strive to work with suppliers with defined purpose to maximize effectiveness. Please contact the Portfolio Manager to arrange your visit. [LOCALE] is an important center of commerce and we can advise on those prospects when you contact us. Your first date may have a conflict so please consider an alternative date/dates when you contact us.
