Winesale.co.nz – The On-line Wine Merchant – N.Z. and Aussie Reds

Corporate Direct was established in 2001 to sell wine by email, a fairly novel approach to liquor retailing at the time. Following a number of years of successful trading the company launched their on-line website and changed their name to ‘Winesale.co,nz’. The company remains one of the strongest players with a nation-wide reach. Owned by the Archibald family, Winesale.co.nz operated from Udy Street in Petone, Wellington, where they also have a fine wine retail presence. Industry veteran Brendon Nottage tends to the purchasing of stock and personally participates in sales. He takes pride in obtaining stocks of good quality wines that can be sold, offering real drinkability and value, these wines essentially being exclusives. Here I begin a series of reviews of imported wines, this review dedicated to New Zealand and Australian reds. www.winesale.co.nz
