In spite of the turmoil and difficulties of the last year, we are delighted to have added a range of new agencies and critically acclaimed producers to our portfolio in this time. Firstly, as an agent we were able to welcome a number of wineries from Italy, Spain and USA last year. These producers all meet our rigorous selection criteria of providing an outstanding quality/price ratio, as well as being leaders from their respective regions….
La Lomellina Gavi, Piedmont – Italy
The first estate to plant Cortese in the region of Gavi, with nearly five hundred years of history.
Le Morette Lugana, Veneto – Italy
Founded over 60 years ago by Gino Zenato, Le Morette is a family-run farm, located in an area of Lugana known for producing the best territorial Cru wines, showing elegant structure and minerality.
Sartarelli Ancona, Marche – Italy
A fully family-run operation, and a rare Italian winery to focus exclusively on a single varietal production, in this case Verdicchio, which they arguably put on the world stage.
San Giusto a Rentennano Gaiole Chianti Classico, Tuscany – Italy
A family-run, 100% organic winery producing outstanding Tuscan wines, which overlooks the upper course of the Arbia river in the farthest south Chianti Classico wine zone.

DAOU Family Estates Paso Robles, California – USA
Founded by brothers George and Daniel Daou in 2009, DAOU Family Estates was created with the vision to make California “first growth” wine and was recently nominated for Wine Enthusiast’s American Winery of the Year.

This small sustainable family-run winery is located in the small town of Nava de Roa, and is the product of the experience accumulated through generations by the García family, of Vega Sicilia fame.
Navascués Enología Cariñena, Aragon – Spain

Alongside these exclusive agencies, we have also developed relationships with other like-minded importers who do not serve the on-trade directly but value the high levels of service that we can provide to this channel. To this end we also warmly welcome some equally prestigious wineries from Argentina, Australia, Austria, France and South Africa.
