Mack & Schühle – the Wine and Spirits Family – was founded in 1939 and has been family run ever since. Today, we offer a full service to our partners on the trade and producer side – from reliable procurement of goods and professional quality management, through state-of-the-art logistics, to successful marketing and sales concepts.
We have compiled wines and spirits from all major growing regions of the world into six exclusive bespoke portfolios: MackWines, MackEditions, MackSpirits, Bionisys, Alexander Baron von Essen, and TerraVini. With our own production facilities in Italy and Spain and a strong international network, Mack & Schühle is also a strong partner in the area of private and exclusive label brands.
To serve the different business models of our customers precisely, Mack & Schühle is organized into three business areas:
Off-trade producer brands: top international brands for food retailers, department stores, and cash & carry
Private and exclusive label: bespoke products that customers can use to design their own product ranges
On-trade producer brands: selected fine wines and spirits for the gastronomy and specialist retail and wholesale sectors

In 2010, Mack & Schühle was the first European wine importer to be awarded the IFS Broker certificate. The majority of our suppliers are also certified in accordance with current standards such as IFS or BRC and meet the most stringent quality requirements.
We hold up to 10,000 internal tastings every year and check the traceability of our wines, current packaging and labeling regulations, and optimum storage conditions as a matter of routine. In addition, our wines are analyzed regularly and extensively by independent and certified laboratories.
Mack & Schühle was the first wine distributor to establish a milestone in sustainability by acquiring EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) validation and continues to do so. The EMAS environmental management system focuses on the careful use of local natural resources, environmentally friendly production and logistics processes, and sustainable management and is governed by strict guidelines laid down by the European Union.
Mack & Schühle also holds organic and Demeter certification – the prerequisite for trading in organic and biodynamically produced foods. We select our wines with care and perform extensive checks to ensure that our products meet these exacting standards.
We already offer a wide range of vegan wines and continue to work with our suppliers to expand our vegan product portfolio.
We are proud supporters of the “Wine in Moderation” initiative and the “Don’t Drink and Drive” campaign.
