A Little About Despaña
Despaña Brand Foods is a unique company based in New York that has been servicing the wholesale food service industry with imported specialties from Spain in the U.S since 1971. We have established direct relationships with artisan, small to mid-size producers and represent the most select and high quality brands from Spain to be introduced in the USA.
Our business originally started as a chorizo factory on Northern Boulevard, and ever since then our company has been growing continuously in order to provide Americans the best Spanish products for wholesale and retail markets nationwide.

Shop For Wines
As the only liquor store in NY focused exclusively on wines and spirits from Spain, our tiny boutique owns the largest and most up to date allocated selections of rare and limited wines and spirits available in one place. Most of our stock is also available online so with just one click or a phone call, special bottles can be sent to you in a very short time. Take a look at our selections!
Among our specialties: Sherry, brandy, orujos, anise, vermouths, sparkling wines, reds and whites from all major and up and coming wine producing regions throughout Spain. We thrive on sharing information about all of our wines, the producers and distributors we love to work with in the industry.
In the trendsetting neighborhood of Soho you will find this one of a kind grocery boutique and café that has a mix of old world European charm and a modern feel of Spain in NY. Think of thin slices of hand carved jamon Iberico, bountiful free sample tastings of specialty meats and imported cheese, and many other wonderful bites.
Despaña Vinos y Más
How many Spanish wines can you find in a liquor store that is as tiny as 190 square feet? Amazingly from top to bottom, close to 600 different selections!! We are proud to have curated one of the most interesting and complete, if not biggest offerings of Spanish wines and spirits available anywhere in NY.
Our story begins at 86-17 Northern Blvd in the historic district of Jackson Heights, Queens. As the most diverse borough in NY, it is easy to understand that in the early 70’s this is where a family of immigrants from Asturias, Spain, would decide to establish a store location dedicated to all things Spanish.
Despaña Princeton was opened in 2013 as our first joint venture outside of New York. This beautiful downtown location is on the corner of Nassau and Olden and has an open space feel that includes a market on the first floor to allow for a grocery shopping experience by day and by night a “BYOB” restaurant.
A great part of our business is focused in the wholesale market. We started servicing restaurants and nowadays we supply big and small restaurants and stores, and we also sell Spanish products to other distributors who, in turn, sell them in Chicago, Florida, Washington, Seattle and Las Vegas.
We import the best Spain has to offer, therefore the products and brands we select must be first quality ones. The selection process is continuous, we are always seeking for new foodstuff, trying to innovate and keeping the essence of what Spaniards have been eating during decades for good reasons. Don Bocarte, Fermín, Cola Cao, Turrón 1880 and La Española are a few of the products that can be found among our physical and digital shelves.
