Market Status

Monday, Xavier and I had a meeting in Bordeaux with one of our new customers. They have the potential to be one of our best clients by the end of the year, granted we can find wines they are looking for, which is a challenge (price, notoriety).

The futures campaign is exhausting and stressful. On the other side, wines from our regular stock are a pleasure to work with, which is essential for it concerns wines which I call “normal”, where the price/quality ratio is key.

The Swiss newspaper “le Temps” writes about the Grand Jury Européen’s journey to Japan with its dinners in Michelin star restaurants and wines tasted during the meals, including Valandraud, of course.
I will actually be in Japan from Friday, May 30 until June 3, after Vinexpo Hong Kong.
