Wine critics Vivienne and her partner Malcolm Franks (who also runs a wine school in the UK), visited the farm to taste the Dragonridge wines. Their feedback was very positive and they also advised us with regard to exporting small quantities of our wines to the UK. If any of our readers have contacts that might help us with this, please do let us know.
Dear Diana and Johan,
We really loved all your wines, in particular the Sangiovese 09. As I said at the time, it is a shame we cannot find these wines in the UK.
A propos importers, I would see your wines as on-trade, not supermarket. This is a tricky market to enter, with many importers retrenching. ...Have you looked at importers such as ‘Naked Wines’ for on-line sales, ‘SWIG’ for restaurant and private clients, ‘Vivat Bacchus’, a restaurant with a good South African list?
