I spent 10 years living in Sydney and it’s always nice to go back for a visit to such a beautiful and vibrant city. I was there recently for a sales trip to meet with our distributors and some independent bottle shops and on-premise customers. I have to say the trip was a huge success, we had some great feedback on the wines and managed to make some nice sales but equally important for me was the chance to meet some incredible people – all wine nuts, passionate about the products they sell. These guys know what they like, they know what their customers will like and they’re not afraid to let suppliers like us know about it! That sort of honesty, intelligence and passion is always a good thing in this game! Luckily, they all liked Hemera Estate!
So for those of you in Sydney or anywhere in this great land, please support your local independent bottle shop, chances are they’ll get to know your tastes and be a source of great new discoveries over time. Don’t be afraid to ask them to stock Hemera Estate if they don’t already do so either – they need customer feedback and they enjoy new discoveries too!
