Real Stories that Transmit Our Essence

One day after the repeal of Prohibition, Martin Taub launched a brandy rectifying business with his brothers, Jacob and Abner. It was the Taub family’s first entry into wine and spirits — and a tradition that would be carried on by Martin’s son David, grandson Marc, and great-grandchildren Jake and Chloe.

Palm Bay Imports (now Palm Bay International) is founded by David S. Taub together with his father Martin. David famously championed pinot grigio in the U.S., ​while fostering the growth of an exciting, increasingly global wine portfolio.

David S. Taub is honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s annual Wine Star Awards. He is celebrated as “a visionary for introducing Italian Pinot Grigio to America” and “one of wine and spirits’ most energetic leaders, and a friend as much as a business partner to the many with whom he has interacted.”



Marc D. Taub becomes President & CEO of Palm Bay International, continuing to build category-leading brands and blazing new trails in previously under-the-radar categories with benchmark, family-owned producers of fine wine and spirits.
