New Italian and Australian Releases from Federal Merchants

23-Jul-2014
Federal Merchants, an independent, privately-owned liquor distributor, based in Auckland has been recently growing its portfolio significantly. Aidin Dennis and Mark Mayers are experienced New Zealand drinks industry operators, and the company under their leadership is becoming strong one in terms of breadth and depth in its wine range. Here, I review new arrivals from ‘Le Miccine’ in Italy, and ‘The Black Chook’, a Ben Riggs wine, plus Charles Melton from Australia, these showing the diversity on offer. www.federalmerchants.co.nz
