Case by Case Wine and Grape Brokers is a passion-driven, family owned and operated company seeded deeply in California wine tradition. We buy grapes and wines from trusted sources and are diligent to offer the most competitive prices.


Our CEO, Jim Smith, entered the Wine grape industry in the mid 90's, farming a family owned Old Vine Zinfandel vineyard planted in the 1960's. Over the years Jim monitored every duty on the vineyard, from pruning to selling the vineyard grapes. He was named Lake County Winegrape Grower of the Year in 2003, and served on the board of Lake County's Winegrape Commission and on their marketing committee. After farming for over a decade, Jim began helping other growers find homes for their grapes. Case By Case Wine and Grape Brokers was established soon after.


We are also proud to announce two new additions to the TEAM in Jonathan Smith (Jim’s oldest son) and Emely Grove our new office manager. Jonathan is taking on supervision of picks and our cold storage units among many other tasks as our business grows. Emely helps keep our office in order and our feet to the fire during the busy harvest.


Case by Case Wine and Grape Brokers is a full-service operation offering premium wine grapes, juice and bulk wine from world-class vineyards. We work closely with our growers and ensure that every step is given the personal touch from overseeing vineyard management to harvest and shipment. ***Wine grapes leaving the state are carefully packaged and shipped to preserve their quality during transit. For our winegrowers planting new vineyards, Case by Case can help source Quality grapevines and provide vineyard consultation as needed.
