We have a wine we are trying to sell, a 2014 Pinot Noir, Carneros and are having difficulty finding a distributor that would take the Only 55 cases remaining. Would anyone on here know of or recommend one? Thanks

I assume branded inventory...do you have a wholesale license? You'd be better off trying to sell to bigger retailer or etailer at closer to FOB...distributors don't do one-offs these days.

Give LA Wine Company a call...they're great at this sort of thing.
