Ste. Emilion Sacramental Wines was incorporated in 1992. The company formed by it’s principals Michael Desider and Martin Riccio, was originally established and licensed to sell Sacramental Wines to Churches in the State of New Jersey. These wines, labeled Gold Seal and O*Neh*Da are produced and bottled from New York vintners, with the designation of Altar Wines approved for Liturgical purposes. Ste. Emilion is the exclusive distributor in New Jersey for these outstanding brands.
After 18 years of building a business based upon the sale of Altar Wine, Ste. Emilion evolved into offering it’s customers additional products and services. Building upon it’s well established customer oriented service, Ste. Emilion expanded, offering only the finest quality products used by Churches. These lines include products such as Candles, Altar Breads, Church Furnishings, Ecclesiastical Metalware, Sacred Vessels, all manufactured from companies of superior reputation.
In addition, Seasonal Liturgical Supplies such as Palm and Ashes, Paschal and Advent Candles are also a part of the portfolio. Additional features include Metalware Appointments, Vestments, Albs, Stoles, Sanctuary Candles, Votive Stands and Furniture. There is also a resource for distinguished Metalware Refinishing and Statue Restoration. In New Jersey we pickup and deliver using our own vans. This helps to lower costs and minimizes possible damage during shipments. Ste. Emilion Church Goods staff also have the capibilties to do install and refurbishing on site.
