Need help finding Ontario Agent...

Posted by Sommeliermark, Jun 10, 2010.

Trying to send a few wines from  our vineyard and winery, http://www.bookcliffvineyards.com to Natalie Maclean for review and need a distributor or licensed agent to import a few bottles from Colorado USA to ONT Canada.  Any help or advice here would be greatly appreciated.  Cheers.

Have you tried to contact her through her website (http://www.nataliemaclean.com/) or through twitter?

Actually SHE is the one who reminded me I need to find an agent or distributor to recieve them or they'd be lost in customs or returned.

Well, then ... all I can do is offer some results from a google search. :-)

Thanks so much, just got back from seeing Sting with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Red Rocks Ampitheater in Colorado USA and already sent a few emails to some of the contacts on the site lists you shared.  I suspect Natalie couldnt suggest a particular agent as it may seem a conflict of interest for a wine reviewer to favor one regional importer/.agent over another.

I have a list of Ontario agents here on my site:

Try contacting Lifford or Churchill as a starting point

 

Cheers,

Natalie

Nice ... Lifford was one of my links!

Hi Natalie!  How things in Ontario?  Miss the Toronto area every once in awhile. :-)

Place a "call for tender" on Internationalbeveragenetwork.com or Wineaccess.com  .   I work for an import company that uses both sites daily. If you need distribution in PA, let me know!
