Spanish Wine and a new CEO

Spanish Wine and a new CEO

So with sales targets set and with a 3-4 week lead times to get wine from Europe – especially as they are on summer holidays –   it is time to order some more wine.

Spanish Wine

Over the last few months Greg has been in discussion with José Maria after sampling his familie’s wines during his last trip to Spain.   JM’s family produces Rioja, Albarino and some very nice bubbles.  After a tasting session with the panel in Australia, an order is placed for a selection that represents a cross section of typical Spanish wine.

Albarino from Rias Baixas

Tempranillo from Rioja

Tempranillo from Castilla

Cava from the South.

With the enjoyable times of wine selection behind them the work begins and Greg and JM work through the process

The New CEO turns up 

At the weekly coffee catchup, the progress of the order is discussed.  As she had a cold and and had to cancel her normal routine the youngest member of the team turned up to lend her wisdom – the joys of parenthood and small business.
