Within the Wines and Spirits Division, we are deliberate in our choice of products. As a sine qua non, our wines ought to possess these attributes:
They have to be imported directly from the producer. This is done to ensure that there is first hand contact between the wine producers and vine growers.
The wines must be made from grape varieties that are either indigenous to that region or have been growing there for decades. For example: La Grein from Trentino, Greco di Tufo from Campania; Cannonau from Sardegna, Pinotage from South Africa; Carmenere from Chile, Malbec from Argentina and Shiraz from Australia.
Our wines are bottled at source, namely at country of origin, thus ensuring that the quality and character of the wine remain unspoilt.
