A mere twenty five years, that's how long International Fine Wines (formerly fine Wines of Europe) has been offering the best of European and Australasian wines to our clients. Not a bad stint really and while many things have changed, the fundamental things stay the same.

All we can do is keep fighting for our share. Wine importing is a curious business. It's really a hobby that has gotten out of control; a passion from which we have foolishly decided to try to make a living; probably because we found we were spending most of our time on wine anyway!

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...
