Matt Cole started Grapevine in early 2005 after a previous incarnation as a market researcher running focus groups for a small company based in Chiswick. Grapevine was born when he finally took the plunge and decided to make his passion his business. Matt imports about half of his wine direct from the producers and sources the other half from specialist importers selling to restaurants or small merchants like Grapevine - ie NOT to supermarkets or the high street. Many of these importers are themselves small / family businesses like Grapevine. Doing it this way enables him to stock a greater variety of wines rather than if he sourced and imported all his wines direct from a small number of regions. It also gives him more time to run a wine business rather than traveling and drinking wine all the time - tempting though that may seem.

  • Get this:  If you fly to Walla Walla on Alaska Airlines, you get fee waivers to tasting rooms and Alaska lets you check a case of wine.That's really smart marketing for an up and coming area, if you ask me. Probably helps Alaska to fill out those seats, too.  Other than wine lovers, can't be a ton of folks going to Walla Walla.So, DVogler, will ... Read More
