Create The Best Value Wine  

Give them your price, volume, and wine profile. They will work to find what you need and respect your deadlines. But most importantly, they have access to the different wines of the supplier, and therefore, they are able to get the best value out of his different wines and qualities. They don’t just send samples of existing batches; they make the best wine at your price point.

They are oenologists and agronomists, experienced in the process of elaborating on high-end wines, as well as entry-level wines. They can demand the same high work standard from their suppliers for bulk wines as for high-end wine without affecting the cost per liter. Since wine is their passion, they focus on quality and they are extremely precise in their wine process and instructions, which they personally supervise in order to achieve the best result possible.

Their experience in the wine industry, delivering to the most demanding wine sellers in the world has given them a deep understanding of how the wines have to be according to the markets where they will be consumed. The quality and consistency of the product are essential. They are here to give you that guarantee. Blending, a specific knowledge important to the final product, is among their best skills and is the key to achieving a good quality/price ratio. They also have an excellent network of local contacts: of grape and wine suppliers, oenological products, and filtering services. They know the best services related to bulk wine transportation in South America.

Avoid Spending (too much!) Time Abroad

They strongly believe it is crucial for any wine buyer to know the country where they are buying from very well. And they won't stop you for coming to the beautiful countries they live in! However, with their local assessment they can seriously improve your tastings:

  • Previously, define your product specifications with you, as detailed as possible, according to your knowledge of your market.
  • Accordingly, select a mix of suppliers to create a customized product according to your specifications within your budget.
  • Finally, present you with a portfolio of real options that match your needs and still give you the option to choose.

Let them help you organize your wine tastings and improve the time you spend abroad.

Claudio has been involved in many different areas of the Chilean wine industry. His thesis was a complete analysis of the wine export market. He then collaborated in diverse wine projects for CORFO, the Chilean government's production development corporation. After this, he was in charge of generating periodic statistical analyses and information for CHILEVID, an association of producers of fine wines for exportation. He continued to expand his expertise in the wine industry as a project engineer for the Corporación Chilena del Vino (Chilean Wine Corporation).
