“What also emerged from this Harrods tasting of von Buhl was the exciting quality of the sweet Riesling wines from this 2010 vintage.”

Extraordinary, a privilege to taste.”

This is why we end up with such diverse and  interesting businesses across the UK. On the other side, it does mean that we are not polished corporates .” Step onto the scene World Wine Agencies – the Bathbased supplier which is determined to help independents inject some corporate thinking into their strategies for the future with the creation of a joint business plan.
