Interesting... I have been known to have a rant on this topic. I find , especially with the wine glut, people are buying up big and selling wine anywhere. for example you can get WA Sem sauv Blanc in the Hunter Valley with Mc Claren Vale Shiraz??…

The importance of the right variety in the right region

For sometime now I have been a massive advocate on the selection of a variety that suits it's growing condition. In the mid to late 90's in Australia when wine was nearing it's popularity, growers were planting whatever they could get their hands on in regions that really could not do the variety justice; Pinot Noir in the McLaren Vale and Margaret River, Sauvignon Blanc in the Barossa and Swan Valley and Riesling in the Hunter Valley - Just because it is popular, doesn't mean it's going to be…See More

China Market

Our company is opening channels into China for exporting wine. We are able to tap an unique market for distribution but also delving into the regular market. High volume is mandatory, but we have an order for a smaller exploratory shipment. If you have a slate of bottles that you think would work well, please contact me if your wineries want to take part. Looking for low end and high end bottles. State-side or abroad. I would be happy to answer any questions via…

Looking to buy cheap wine for China

If anyone with bottled and labeled wine in this price range and is interested in exporting to China don't hesitate to contact me. Also, if you just have general questions,…
