History


Miller Squared Inc. founder, Gregory D. Miller remains the driving force behind our innovative company. Launching solo operations in 2003, his business model broke from the normal wholesale chain to create a one-of-a-kind, full-service distribution enterprise. Greg’s wine and spirits experience began tossing cases on Georgia Street in Indianapolis for his Grandfather at Arch Beverage in the early 1970’s. This followed by working with his father Nathan throughout college and eventually in Chicago with a wine spirits wholesale and import business, Great Lakes Wine Company. Great Lakes Wine Company was sold in January of 2001 and Greg remained the General Manager until January 2003 until he founded Miller Squared Inc in May of the same year.

Starting in the Family


Greg’s grandfather, Arthur Cassell launched his family’s legacy during WWII when he managed whiskey and other spirits purchasing and distribution for the Navy General’s Clubs across the world while serving in New York City and then Washington D.C. After the war, he returned to Indianapolis and opened a full wholesale company in which Greg’s father, Nathan Miller eventually joined him and operated. After graduating from Indiana University in 1982, Greg initially worked for the Glenmore Distillery Company when he caught the wine bug and came into Great Lakes Wine Company. Married in the Spring of 1984, Greg and his wife Melissa, moved to Germany where Greg worked in the cellars and vineyards of Sanistatrat Dr. Dahlem, Oppenheim am Rhein. He learned to make wine during the time while also bottling the superb vintage year of 1983. He also worked in the vineyards and developed new marketing programs for the Dahlem’s family business. During their stay in Germany, Melissa worked in the freight forwarding department of J. F. Hillebrand, Maniz while the two enjoyed the Spring, Summer and Fall of 1984. Upon returning to Chicago in the Winter of 1985, Greg worked for the Great Lakes Wine Company in numerous roles including sales, administration, purchasing, finance, marketing, and logistics. Melissa formally joined Great Lakes Wine Company in a financial and logistics role in the Summer of 1994, after taking time off to raise their three children. This bridging of the ‘old world’ with the ‘new’ has is the recipe that has filled his family's cup and honored their long tradition as fine wine and spirits importers and wholesalers.
