About Us

Tiedemann Wines, a wholesale wine distributor, is a locally-owned family business in Elkhart, Ind. Vintner and businessman Carl Tiedemann took his passion for discovering exceptional wines and combined it with more than 30 years of business experience in the Elkhart community. His excitement for sharing wine with others sparked the creation of Tiedemann Wines, a company that strives to build on its existing business reputation and to be known as a source of education and wine knowledge.


Through relationships in Napa Valley, Tiedemann Wines has the distribution rights to supply the area with unique wines that have never been available in Indiana. In addition to representing a number of wineries in its portfolio, Tiedemann Wines also has wine produced for its own labels. Under the Glenwood Cellars label, Tiedemann Wines is producing a Sauvignon Blanc, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir. Under the Tiedemann label, it is producing the Tiedemann Signature Series Red Wine, Adler's Blend and a Dessert Wine. These wines add depth to a unique wine portfolio, and allow owner Carl Tiedemann the opportunity to pursue his other passion of creating his own wines. Working one-on-one with his favorite Napa Valley winemakers, Carl gets to carefully blend wines to get exactly what he wants for his own wines.


Tiedemann Wines opened in the fall of 2010, while Carl’s other business, The Tiedemann Group, has been in the market for over 30 years. Since the beginning, the Tiedemann team has prioritized customer service and strived to exceed customer expectations. By providing an extensive background in wine selection, Tiedemann Wines assists customers in developing successful wine programs. Using inventive and cutting-edge marketing tactics including radio commercials, video and social media sites, Tiedemann Wines aspires to grow its business and the business of its clients.

Each week Carl shares his wine adventures, educational stories on wine, wine reviews and information on upcoming wine tasting events in the blog TiedemannOnWines.com.
