Minka Trading in Italian Wine

Minka Trading is a small Italian Wine Importing company established by Veronica Ward and her husband Simon. Simon is well-known in the New Zealand wine industry, now as the consultant in the Fine Wine department of Webb’s Auction House, but previously at Te Awa and with Empson & Co. working with Italian wine, and this will have provided good experience for this new business. The ‘Coralto’ wines are from the Curatolo Arini family who has the oldest Marsala producing winery on Sicily and are single varietal indigenous bottlings. (www.curatoloarini.com) The ‘Buio’ wine is from Cantina Mesa, a 70 ha estate at Sulcis Iglesiente on Sardinia.
