You're half way there.

distribute + pip + virtualenv is the way to go.

Use pypiserver to host your private packages if you don't want to push them
to PyPI; or Gemfury if you want a hosted solution.

However, if you're developing on python3, you might have to look at the new
distutils 'cause it covers (at least tries to cover) the feature set from
all those.
