Massachusetts Wine and Spirit Wholesalers are at the center of several million dollar industries in the Commonwealth. This industry is vital to the state’s economic health and welfare. WSWM’s member companies employ over 2,000 residents paying over $145,000,00 in wages. All told, nearly 32,700 people in Massachusetts depend on the production, distribution, and sale of wine and spirits products for their livelihood.

From Avon to Somerville to Norton to Boston our employees are our greatest assets. Offering healthcare, a living wage and encouraging community service opportunities to our employees help to keep our industry strong and neighborhoods even stronger. These are core values of WSWM.

In today’s industry, the three-tier system exemplifies a responsible and efficient distribution system that delivers adults the widest variety of products available anywhere in the world in a manner that controls access for of-age consumers, delivers taxes to the state and ensures product safety and consumer protection.
