Strategic distribution channel management for prestige wineries looking to maximize their export sales.


The barriers faced by wineries to increase export sales include time, expert knowledge and a comprehensive network. I provide wineries the opportunity to outsource this important role cost-effectively. I will create and optimize synergies between different wine regions by carefully selecting a diverse portfolio. The key link for all partners is sustainability. Our core values are centred on the three-columns of sustainable business today - people, environment and profitability.


Expert distribution knowledge:

    • Proven track record in distribution management for KWV, Racke, Codorníu-Raventós and Mediterranean Domains & Estates: Calatrasi.

    • Multi-channel portfolio management (Horeca, multiple retail, online and monopoly markets) across various countries.

    • Dynamic: Ability to drive new business (growth in profitability and turnover; innovative trade promotion development; staff training programmes).

    • Supply-chain optimization: Development and implementation of reporting systems for planning.

    • Outstanding relationship management with experience of distribution management in over 30 countries.

    • Language skills: Native English speaker, bilingual German, basic French.

    • Wine Masters of Business Administration

  • Expert wine knowledge founded on the WSET programme via the Weinakademie in Rust and Geisenheim and specialist seminars such as those offered by the Sommelier Schule Koblenz, DLG and DWI – including the programme Anerkannter Deutsche Weinberaterin.
