We have over forty years’ experience in sourcing, producing and marketing quality wines all over the world. We export exclusive wines from Italy, France, Spain, South Africa and South America to the major European markets and to markets in Africa and Asia. Whether it is finding a great value entry level wine for big volumes, or marketing a prestige brand we have the sourcing and marketing capabilities to help you develop your portfolio and increase sales.
Either with a dedicated winemaking team or in partnership with wineries, we work from the vineyard to the ageing and bottling, through to branding and marketing of the wines on the international marketplace. The commercial needs and methods of business are different all over the world. That is why you get a solution specific to your needs when you work with us, whatever the size and shape of your company. High service levels, flexibility and quick response times give you the ability to deliver quality onward service to your customers.
Good wine is dependent on a healthy environment and all our wineries are committed to keeping the soil, air and water around them as clean as possible. Some use organic methods, most use little or no pesticides. All our South African producers are members of the Biodiversity in Wine Initiative which aims to minimise the further loss of threatened natural habitats and contribute to sustainable wine production.
We recognise our responsibility as part of the global wine trade to protect and preserve the environment for future generations. Our key priorities are to: reduce, reuse, recycle and redesign in order to use less energy. We encourage all our customers and producers to recycle all packaging, and recycle 100% ourselves.
Through our Gorilla Wine we also support endangered species who are being threatened due to the erosion of their natural habitat. Through the sale of every bottle of Gorilla Wine we donate a small part to the The Gorilla Organisation in order to protect endangered mountain gorillas in their battle of survival.
Unfortunately, some wine producing countries still have huge inequalities in Society. In South Africa we only work with wineries that pay and treat their workers fairly and have social and community programmes in place to support workers and their families. This includes crèches for the workers’ children, education programmes and after-school care as well as housing and free bus services. Closer to home we make several donations a year to local charities.
