Chateau Minuty in May

The second week of May saw our buying team set out from Nice to visit suppliers in Aix-en-Provence. First was Château Minuty to taste the new vintages and meet the winemakers. 

From Champagne to Nuits Saint Georges

In April the buying team visited many of our producers in central France. Beginning with an early start in Bisseuil, Champagne, we met Florence Bauchet, then drove to Chablis to meet Jean Paul Durup of Chateau Maligny (pictured), then on to Meursault to meet Jean-Marie Bouzereau

The next day we started in Burgandy, meeting Sandrine and Christophe of Domaine Thibert, representatives from Domaine Bouroniere and completed the trip by visiting Domaine de l'Arlot in Nuits St. George.

JULY 2011 - Brunello di Montalcino arrives from Abbadia Ardenga

After visiting Italy a number of times and tasting with numerous Brunello growers we have selected the Abbadia Ardenga winery for our portfolio.

Abbadia Ardenga stood head and shoulders above the rest of the growers whose wines we tasted and the value for money was incredible. These wines were half the price of some other growers and in our opinion twice the quality.

The wines are as follows:

  • 2008 Rosso di Montalcino DOC
  • MAY 2011 - Michel Drappier named Commandeur of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne

    Michel Drappier, President of Champagne Drappier, has been named Commandeur of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne. The transfer of office took place at the premises of Champagne Drappier in Reims in the presence of an important delegation of the Conseil Chapitral and leaders of the Champagne trade

    MAY 2011 - New Arrivals from New Zealand

    At the end of May the abfw portfolio will be strengthened by the addition of 7 new wines from 3 growers across New Zealand
