– The On-line Wine Merchant – French

As one of New Zealand’s successful on-line wine merchant operations, specialises in accessible quality wines that offer good value. Based in Petone in Wellington, efficiently ships orders throughout New Zealand. While much of the portfolio is based on domestic wines, the Archibald family’s buyer Brendon Nottage knows that with French wines there must be a smattering of the traditional and well-recognised wines as well as a strong selection from the up-and-coming, or lesser-known country regions, especially from southern France to ensure good turnover. Here, I review a selection of French Wines.
