History

In 1939, Charles E. Groskopf & Son began a small trucking company in Sonoma, hauling a variety of goods. As the local wine economy emerged, the company focused on serving the wine industry's trucking, warehousing, and logistical needs.

President Guillaume Crété has strived to make Groskopf Warehouse & Logistics a company based on integrity, honesty, and accountability. He has focused on creating not the biggest, but the best warehouse to serve California wine country and international neighbors alike.

From a modest beginning 32 years ago, the 200,000 square foot Sonoma and 104,000 square foot Napa warehouse now stores and ships premium wines, beer, and spirits to the four corners of the world.
