Our
winemakers

We always choose to work with passionate winemakers who most often hail from boutique family wineries dealing in smaller volumes. We respect those who choose QUALITY OVER QUANTITY… mainly because they share our passion for handcrafted beauties. The long-standing relationships we have today were built out in the vineyards, face-to-face.

buyers

We have a global team with a network of contacts built and nurtured over FIVE decades! Exploring Australia’s smaller wineries can be difficult, time consuming and potentially unachievable for members. We aim to be a one-stop solution. Our team have personally tasted and rated every wine in our range, and love putting new wines and styles on the shelf – helping push the boundaries of the wine world wider and wider.

Our growers

Great wine is made in the vineyard. Growers are often the forgotten people of wine – tending a vineyard is hard, time consuming work. The dedication and passion needed to ensure grapes reach optimum ripeness, balance and flavour is often passed on through generations. Boutique wineries often start when growers stop selling their grapes to the big boys and make wine for themselves. We share their passion.

Our global

Every wine in our range has fought for its place on the shelf and has been personally rated and tasted – then retasted – by our own experts. Internationally, these include Justin Howard-Sneyd (MW), founder Tony Laithwaite, legendary wine author Hugh Johnson and our award-winning buying team led by Aussie-born Beth Willard. Our home-grown range is looked after by Fiona Warren-Tibbetts, the hugely experienced buyer Dan Parrott and the very knowledgeable Australian wine team.
