Michael started the company with just two wines: a Vinho Verde that he had made exclusively for GRANDE VINDIMA, and a 2003 Douro red. The wines were aimed at high-end bars, restaurants and fine wine stores and quickly sold out. The range rapidly expanded to over forty wines, and now includes espumante, Vinho Verde wines, white, red and rose table wines, white and red ports, as well as a selection of olive oils. Soon Portuguese beer will be added to the growing and diverse portfolio.
GRANDE VINDIMA currently distributes to VIC, NSW, SA and WA, and plans are in place to move into QLD and ACT in the near future.
Michael’s passion, however, is with Portuguese wines. A fluent Portuguese speaker, he takes every opportunity to immerse himself further into the country’s culture, and so founding GRANDE VINDIMA was a natural progression for him.
Michael has a keen eye for top quality, little-known Portuguese wines at great prices. This is just a sample of what he imports. For more information about the other Portuguese wines that he imports, please call Michael on 0416 307 804 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Better yet, come and have a chat to him at the Specialist Importers Collective Trade Tasting on Tuesday 26th June at La Vita Buona, City Square.
