The first BestWineImporters database was launched almost 15 years ago, in 2005. It was a time when wineries were becoming increasingly interested in expanding their exports, especially after the massive growth of the Asian markets, and there were very few reliable databases which provided contacts for worldwide wine importers and distributors.
We were a small team back then, with experience in the information industry, and we decided to create a product that focused on the main aspects that were missing from our competition – accuracy and ease-of-use. We made sure that all the information included was verified and kept up-to-date and that even the small producers, who weren’t very familiar with computers, would be able to use the databases.
The recipe proved to be a successful one and in a matter of a few short years we became the leading source of information for the export departments of wineries worldwide.
