The firm was founded in 1982, as MKF (Motto Kryla & Fisher LLP). With a shared passion for wine and business, the partners built MKF into the leading firm of wine business advisors - advising many of the top wine industry pioneers along the way.
MKF developed a number of related business units to serve the wine industry, including MKF Capital Advisors - wine investment bank, MKF wine business advisors - the industry's leading firm of management consultants and CPA's, and MKF Research - a leading wine economic and market research firm.
In 2003, MKF Capital Advisors became Global Wine Partners, the global wine investment bank through its merger with International Wine Consultants, wine merchant bank of Sydney and Paris.
As the investment bank continued to grow, the other business units were sold to one of the top U.S. CPA and consulting firms.
Global Wine Partners continued to expand in size and scope to become the industry's leading wine investment bank, advising and facilitating scores of transactions of all sizes.
Today, Global Wine Partners continues to fulfill its mission of fostering the long-term viability and successful growth of the wine industry globally.
