We perform Consultancy services to airlines, luxury hotel groups, major retailers, cruise lines, wineries and government.
Our success in consulting comes from our ability to deliver results for our clients. We have won Best Wine List in the Sky for Qatar Airways, Wine Spectator awards for our hotel clients, and Gold Medals for our winery clients. Our services become a marketing asset for clients. Our goal in consultancy wine buying is to improve the quality of the range whilst lowering costs.
In addition, we are also invited to speak at events and conferences, as well as aboard luxury cruise lines.
