Imported Wines
An important component of   E. C. Robins International is found in the wine industry,  where, for more than 25 years, E. Claiborne Robins, Jr. has actively researched fine wines, particularly in France, Germany, and Italy. His developed, keen sense of product quality, in-depth knowledge of production and vintification, as well as relationships with a long list of well known producers, shippers, and negociants, resulted in the establishment of a wine importation business in 1990. Fine wines, represented by a number of producers, are available to distributors across the United States through E. C. Robins International, Inc.

Wine retailers and restaraunts in Virginia are served by ECRI's wine distribution services through its subsidiary, "The Robins Cellars". Offering a broad selection of quality, affordable wines from smaller yet notable producers, both domestic The Robins Cellarsand foreign, The Robins Cellars fills an important niche market with alternatives to the mass produced, often mediocre wines. Equally important, The Robins Cellars provides the personal, dedicated, and thorough services most valued by quality retailers and restaraunts.

E. C. Robins International, Inc. was founded in January, 1990, by E. C. Robins, Jr., as a tribute to his father (pictured on the tri-cycle at left) and in celebration of the family's 124 years in the pharmaceutical industry.

For those who know E. Claiborne Robins, Jr. personally, the founding of  E. C. Robins International, Inc. was no surprise. He entered the pharmaceutical business in 1968, where he "worked his way" through a major company. Gaining "hands-on" experience through 17 corporate departments and production operations he learned the critical details of producing products whose names have become household words in the U.S. and over 100 countries. He assumed the position of President & CEO of A.H. Robins Company in 1978, where for 12 years he charted a course of excellence and growth for the company, and the family legacy. Under his active leadership, sales increased by over 200% to $939 million in 1989.
