Our story

“There is nothing in the world more powerful than a good story". Tyrion Lanister

The crescent moon has long been a symbol of rebirth and new cycles in life: birth of new ventures, relationships, and new beginnings.  Just as the Moon has cycles so do our lives. We found ourselves at the end of one and the beginning of another.

We both arrived in New York in 2002, for business school, and soon after started a career in finance. Fate had us start a new job the same day, at the same bank, in the same team circa 2008. Fate also had us meet for lunch in 2019, after we had both decided to leave the financial industry and start something new, and rediscover that we both shared a passion for wine and food.

With roots in Chile, Daniel had been thinking about expanding the offer of Chilean wines in the U.S. and introduce the american public to a new breed of extraordinary winemakers. With strong ties to Spain, via Mexico, Rafael had been thinking the same with regards to Spanish wines in the U.S. We believe new and exciting proposals are coming out of Chile and Spain.

Thus Crescent Imports was born.  A new beginning, a new venture, a new experience. This is where the journey begins.

We are building a portfolio of wines that we consider true gems. We want to share them with you. We hope you will join us in this journey of discovery and zest for life.

About us

Salud, Cheers, Sante, Salute, Le Haim and so on...

That’s what we say each time you raise a glass of wine with friends, with family, with loved ones. We celebrate our happiness, our zest for life with wine… and we wish those around us good health to keep enjoying it with us.

 At Crescent we are committed to bringing you the best wines that we can find in the markets in which we specialize. Wines are ever changing and evolving. They are complex and fascinating, however, we believe enjoying them doesn’t have to be a complicated experience. If you like wine you can always be exploring and enjoying new products boldly.

We will work with producers that have the deepest respect for the grapes and the process to come up with  the best possible wine. We will bring those wines to you. We will tell you the history of the wine you’re drinking, so you not only enjoy its taste, you can enjoy its origin.

We will treat with respect all our collaborators, partners, and customers. You are the people  that make our  business possible .

We will  work with you so you can  enjoy wine with good food and good friends. Enjoy every moment.  There is no better day than today to open that “special” bottle of wine you have been  saving.
